Re: laptop

1. Start pressing F8 right after you reboot...
2. Then select Safe Mode from the list of choices..
3. Use System Restore to go back to a date previous to the one you did you upgrade..

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

Best of luck!

IOgear KVM not working with laptop

First, you have to make sure that the KVM switch is directly connected to your laptop, and NOT to a docking station.

This KVM switch is designed to work with direct connections to the computers.

Second, the light indicator on the KVM switch is not an indicator for power. It's an indicator to see which port is active. If your laptop is connected to port 2, but the focus of the KVM is in port 1, then the port 1 will have a light, not the port 2.

You may also refer to the user manual of the KVM.

Thank you!

Tripp Lite KVM monitor light doesn't come on anymore .....


The switch may be the problem but it also may be the monitors internal power supply. To check you can open the case by the little switch and remove the plunger ( the little pin that moves up and down) If you get a picture back then the switch is the problem and you will have to bend the flat spring up to give it a little more movement. I would be if the monitor is about 2-3 years old that the problem is in the power supply board. After a few years many LCD monitors have issues with the power boards blowing capacitors. It happens on desktop monitors and rack mount units too. If you have an external power adapter for the monitor check the voltage output and replace if it is not steady. If the power supply is internal to the monitor then you will need to open the case and check the capacitors for heat damage. Check our site at: for pictures of what to look for. Replace any that look like the pictures and you should be back going again. The values that you will need are going to be marked on the sides of the bad caps. Be sure to use a high temp replacement or the problem will be back in a month or two. If yo don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service of the monitor for $40 plus return shipping. If you have any questions just let me know.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Laptop lcd

On laptops there is usually a soft switch to change the way video output is routed. The keypad should have an "FN" key on it (blue lettering mostly on the lower left of keyboard). Also look for one of the "F" keys (F1, F2, etc) to have an icon for a screen/blank screen. Hold done the FN while hitting the appropriate F key. The way it normally goes each time you press - laptop LCD only, VGA output, both, off. Sometimes just first 3 or the order may be different. When just VGA enabled or off the laptop screen will be blank.

When using a KVM switch, you must have the VGA ouput enabled from the laptop.

No picture on my laptop

Jackboy is right. When did the picture fail on you and what were you doing? Can you see any picture at all even the smallest trace?
