Re: 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.

I have been using my Iogear kvm switch for almost 2 years now to switch between a desktop and a laptop, both Windows XP. I unplugged the laptop in a hurry to go do a presentation, and plugged everything...

This almost sounds like the display setting on your laptop was changed to an external device. Most laptops are designed to be hooked up to an external display, such as a monitor or projector, specifically for presentations. You can alternate the display options in the following ways:

  1. Laptop display only
  2. External display only
  3. Laptop+External clone
  4. Laptop display + extended desktop on external display (dual monitor setup)
Check your laptop display settings and make sure that it's not in presentation mode (options 2-4) before connecting the KVM switch to it. It may be recognizing the KVM switch as an external display in option 4 mode.

I've got a 4 port switch with two computers hooked up - a desktop and a Lenovo Thinkpad R60 laptop - the desktop works perfect but when I switch to the laptop only the keyboard works - no video or mouse

The Thinkpad does not divert the video automatically to the external monitor via the KVM switch, you need to divert the video by pressing on the Fn key and the press the F7 key to toggle between the Thinkpad's LCD screen and the video port/external monitor. You may need to use a separate USB mouse connected to the Thinkpad.

My ECS17 KVM tray will not respond to hotkey commands.

The LCD is just that an LCD, you would need a Switch behind it in order to get into the Hotkeys.

Laptop will not connect properly

If possible directly connect the KVM cables to the laptop computer. Try to avoid connecting the KVM cables to a docking station. Also if your KVM has manual port selection buttons on the front of the KVM try holding that button for about five seconds when switching ports.

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!

More info please, laptop, desktop, cable-modem, or dial-up, brand of computer is usefull too. If cable modem, use a LAN cable(LOCAL AREA NETWORK) it looks similar to a phone cord, and plugs into the back of a desktop, or side of a laptop.
For more than 1 computer, you'll need a router of some kind.
Internal dial-up modems are a whole nother thing, if you need one of these you may want to take it somewhere and have a pro put it in, especially if its a laptop.
