On that model of KVM switch,making sure Both computers are on, you should only have to hit the "Scroll Lock" key twice, then hit the up arrow to switch between computers. like "tap-tap" on Scroll Lock key then "tap" on the up arrow key. See if that works.

Driver for Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K16D


Suggest you try this, Chris;

Go to Device Manager.

[WinXP:
Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list > Left-click on the Hardware tab. Left-click on Device Manager

Win Vista/ Win 7:
Windows logo button > Right-click on Computer > follow the above ]

When Device Manager loads click on the + sign, to the left of DVD/CD-ROM drives.
Right-click right on the name of the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

Left-click on Uninstall.

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up; "Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
It's OK. Click on OK.

Now close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

(WinXP: Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart
Win Vista/Win 7: Windows logo button > Restart )

When Windows fully loads you will get a pop-up, out of the system tray, "Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one, "Found Pioneer DVD-RW"

Windows has the habit of losing drivers. Let's see if this 'slaps Windows around'.

Regards,

[Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Windows XP/Vista/7 is the O/S, the optical drive is the device ]

Windows 7 Tips and Hacks


You have upgraded to Windows 7, love the new taskbar, and enjoy the power of using the cool Libraries feature. But now you want more. You want the cool tips and tricks that make Windows 7 fun! So here are the best ones to help you get the most out of your new OS. We will focus on the Windows 7 interface to get you started on the road to becoming a Windows 7 Power User.

1. Use Keyboard Shortcuts Using the mouse, you can drag-‘n-dock windows to either side of the screen, or drag it to the top to maximize it. These keyboard shortcuts are even faster:
  • Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow dock the window to the left and right side of the screen
  • Win+Up Arrow and Win+Down Arrow maximize and restore/minimize
  • Win+M minimizes everything
  • Alt+Up, Alt+Left Arrow, Alt+Right Arrow navigate to parent folder, or browse Back and Forward through folders in Explorer
  • Win+Home minimizes/restores all open windows except the active window
  • Alt+Win+# accesses the Jump List of program number ‘#’ on the taskbar

2.Rearrange System Tray Icons
You can rearrange icons on the taskbar as you wish and start new (or switch to running) instances of the first ten taskbar programs using Win+1, Win+2, and so on. The cool thing is you can also rearrange system tray icons. Reorder them on the tray or move them outside or back in the tray. Take control of what you want to always keep an eye on, and from which apps you’ll require notifications.


3. Access Jump Lists with the Left Mouse Button Jump Lists usually show up when you right-click on a taskbar icon. However, they can also be accessed by holding the left mouse button and dragging upwards. If you’re using a laptop touchpad or a touch screen, this is convenient because you do not have to click any button to access a context menu.


4. Add Any Folder to FavoritesYou can add any library or folder to the Favorites section in Windows Explorer. To add a folder, navigate to it in Explorer, right-click Favorites in the left navigation pane, and select Add current location to Favorites. Now you get quick access to your favorite folders in all File->Save As dialogs!


5. Pin Frequently Used Folders to the Taskbar Right-click, drag, and pin your favorite folders to Windows Explorer on the taskbar. They will now show up in the Jump List when you right click on Explorer giving you quick access to your favorite folders.


6. Pin Control Panel to the TaskbarYou cannot pin the Control Panel to the taskbar via the Start Menu or by drag and drop. Open the Control Panel and right-click its taskbar icon to pin it to the taskbar. An advantage of this is that Control Panel’s Jump List allows quick access to recently used functions.


7. Create Keyboard Shortcuts for Programs You can create keyboard shortcuts for any program in Windows 7. Right-click the program icon and select Properties. Select the Shortcut tab, click in Shortcut key, to set the keyboard shortcut for that program.


8. Open Command Prompt in Any Folder Like the command prompt? Miss the ‘Open Command Window Here’ Windows XP power toy? Press ‘Shift’ when right-clicking on a folder to get that option in the context menu. This also works on the desktop. No power toy required!


9. View Expanded ‘Send To’ MenuPress Shift when right-clicking on a folder to get an expanded Send To menu.


10. Adjust Screen Text with Clear Type Use Clear Type Tuner for the best look on your LCD monitor or laptop screen. Run ‘cttune.exe’ from the Start Menu search box, or go to the Control Panel Display applet, and select Adjust ClearType Text from the left.


11. Get Exact Colors On Your Screen If you are an artist or you work with colors, use the Calibrate Color option in the Control Panel Display applet or run dccw.exe from the Start Menu search box. You can adjust gamma, brightness, contrast, and color balance, ensuring that colors are displayed correctly on your screen.

12. Customize the Power Button If you restart your computer more often than you shut it down, change the default Shutdown power button to Restart. Right-click on Start, select Properties, and choose the Power button action that you use the most.

13. Customize Number of Items in Jump Lists & Start Menu google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);Right-click Start, select Properties, click Customize and choose the number of recent programs to be shown in the Start Menu and the number of items displayed in Jump Lists from the Start Menu Size section below.

14. Search Internet from the Start MenuEnable Internet search from the Start Menu using your default browser. Run GPEDIT.MSC from the Start Menu search box to start the Group Policy Editor. In the left pane, go to User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Start Menu and Taskbar. In the right pane, right-click to Edit and Enable Add Search Internet link to Start Menu.


15. Add Videos to Start Menu Windows 7 does not place a link to your videos on the Start Menu by default. To add a link to your videos on the Start Menu, right-click Start, select Properties, click on Customize. In the Videos section at the bottom, choose Display as a link.

Hi, Restore the Computer to the Default Factory Configuration

Good Luck (please don't post in all CAPITAL LETTERS next time)
