Question about IOGear GCS634U KVM Switch
I have an iogear usb KVM switch. I have 2 windows 7 machines. My desktop connects to the KVM fine and i can use my mouse keyboard and monitor all fine. However my laptop is all plugged into the switch but the switch does not recognize it. The laptop even installed all the drivers when i plugged in the switch but the light on the switch doesnt come on indicating that it is connected and I cant switch to my laptop. Any suggestions?
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.

As a wild guess, it sounds like a static discharge MIGHT be affecting the switcher causing it to crash.
Try increasing your humidity to 40% and grounding yourself before touching the keyboard... This is the season for these static electricity problems... get nipped all the time and you MAY not even feel it to be enough to zap the switch.
