Re: apex outlook kvm switch
Ok so this is not a hub, but in my experience with similar setups, it comes down to a handful of possibilities.
As with djnick's suggestion, older cables can give problems and if the ports are in an area where they may attract dust, or be poorly groomed ( meaning cables are dangled or twisted and crossed, may also be under excess strain )
Excess heat or moisture - check around the area, place a thermometer near the unit and check this against safe operating temps and humidity ratings ( should be on the unit or at least in the handbook)
Get some pen and paper and make a note of how the setup is currently setup so as to avoid confusion when re-connecting the cables.
Take particular note of the ports not shown or responding, and test each one in turn with a lead that is known to work, this will only eliminate bad leads, not bad ports.
Try using the leads from bad ports in good ports, this can also help eliminate the good eggs from the bad ones.
The only other way is with to blast the ports with a can of compressed air ( not available in all countries due to safety concerns with the product ) - may have to resort to another method, but do take care and as with most units of this nature try to avoid using suction on the ports or internal components.
Worst case scenario you end up back at square one and the problem remains. This could also mean the problem lies with the software that is running, or any firewalls in the network may also be blocking the ports & may need a rule created to allow these ports to work.
Consider every option carefully as sometimes the solution may be closer then you think.

Blue Screen usually means you have no video source, but also it can be a bad cable, bad signal, or week signal. I will try to hook it up to a dvd and test it on another source. However the screen should be all blue aand not blue lines, if you can email me a photo of the screen I will be able to properly address it.
