Question about Belkin F1DF102PEA 2-port KVM Switch
Hi I have a problem with a Belkin Switch2 F1DG102U KVM. The keyboard and mouse do not work on either machine i try to use. The first machine is a Fujitsu PC the 2nd is a dell laptop both running Xp. I can change video and audio between machines using the remote and hotkeys but not the keyboard or mouse. I've tested the k/board and mouse directly into both pc's and they work fine but not through the KVM - all devices are USB.
Thanks in advance

You need to have the keyboard connecter (purple) connected to your computer in order for the KVM switch to recognize it. The computer is providing some power through the keyboard connector and this is what the KVM switch is feeding on.
If you have a USB keyboard, you may want to change your KVM for a USB compatible one. If you just want to use the KVM to switch your monitor, you may plug the keyboard (purple) connector of the KVM to your computer's keyboard PS/2 port and also connect you USB keyboard directly to your computer. It should work.

I have installed several of these KVM switches before... that's not normal. It sounds like there's a manufacturer's defect which is causing the video to link up with the wrong keyboard/mouse cables. If you just bought it, I'd recommend returning it and getting a replacement.

This is not quite a solution, but a workaround. Take a USB cable extender and intercept the 5V supply wire in it (normally red) with a push to break switch. When you have powered up the PC, push the switch and the KVM will then work (same as your unplugging but much easier to do ). Switch bought on Ebay for 0.99GBP. Belkin tried to insist that I had my laptop plugged in and working if I wanted to use my desktop.

is that a Mouse/keyboard combo ? If so, try with a standalone Mouse and a keyboard. If the Keyboard and Mouse need Special Drivers the solution might not work neither.
I hope that helped.
