Question about Belkin F1DG102U 2-port KVM Switch

Open Question

Problematic switching between 2 P/C

I use the F1DG102U switch. When I power on the first PC (win vista) all is well. When I power on the second PC (win xp professional), although I can hear the booting up procedure nothing appears on the screen unless I press one, two or even three times the restart button of the PC, in which case the PC repeatently restarts and finally gets in working order.
From that point on everything works perfectly and switching between the two computers is accomplished either using the romote button or the Flip software.
Any suggestions ? Thank you very much !!

You might try disabling any power saving schemes in use on either computer. The KVM (I believe) gets its power through the ports and one computer may be shutting down power.

2 cpu and a kvm sharer swith problem.

That switch is power activated - the kb and mouse are assigned to first one that starts and the second pc thinks that it doesn't have neither keyboard or mouse attached and freezes.
Before starting the second pc manually change the assignment.

XP Display turns off after switching to Win 7

search for WIN 7 & KVM switch issues... you will find thousand of hits, because WIN 7 has one unique feature where it disables internal and external ports if these are not in use.

In a KVM solution setup this would mean, while you are connected everything is fine, now when you switch over to your (Lets say) WIN XP and work for 30 minutes on it... and then switch back, WIN 7 might have already scanned and seen that the USB port where the KVM cable comes in is IDLE... so it disconnected it... you cannot get it back until you reboot your WIN 7 system. Its not the KVM solution is one of those Microsoft wonder weapons that breaks what has worked for 20 years

Audio with KVM switch

Check that the audio-cables from the "other" computer to the KVM are not near anything "bad", such as AC adapter for the speakers, or close to any speakers.

If you temporarily connect the speakers _directly_ to the "other" computer, does the "noise" go away?

Problem with KVM switch and Vista

Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.
