Hold down the Scroll Lock key for several seconds. The switch should beep briefly and blink. Hit either the "1" or "2" key on your keyboard to switch to the corresponding computer connection.

SOURCE: Power adapter of Avocent SwitchView® 1000

Usually, you can get away with a 12 DC adapter, at about 1 - 2 Amps, preferably switchmode. The center Pin is Positive & the Outer is negative. Most computer "Things" require 5 Volts & under for the IC's etc, and 12 Volts for Other communication IC's and Motors etc. So generally 12 Volts is a good choice. And you could get a 10 Amp unit because it will not matter as a unit will only "Draw" it's maximum, of whatever that is. So if the max draw was say 1 Amp, well a 2 Amp would be fine, but if the reverse were true it could not work. You also need a little head room, too which is why use use a 1:1.5 ratio, IE: The unit draws 5 Amps, your supply should be able to provide, at least 8. Now if you check on your unit it may even tell you the wattage, if this is the case, divide that figure by 12, that will give you the Current required in Amps, just get a supply with slightly more.

Is your switch a SCxPDV or a SC4UAD? Regardless, if it's a DVI switch, you can try place a DVI-D cable in between your HP PC and the switch. Do the same between the switch and the HP monitor. I'm guessing you are currently using a DVI-I cable between the PC and the switch. Some video card/OS combo send out analog signal when you use a DVI-I cable on the PC, which would not be displayed if you are using the digital port on the monitor. To read up on the difference between DVI-I and DVI-D cables, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

For future Avocent product related questions, I suggest you post them at Avocent's user forum http://community.avocent.com as it's monitored by their tech support team.

Hope this helps. Thanks.

Did someone temper with the seal on the switch?


If not power down the Switch, power it back on, wait 2 minutes and reboot your PCs. What happens?

Reset password log in KVM SwitchView1000


This is the reset process for the SV1000 password. Enter all 0s in the password field, without pressing the Enter key and use a small pin to press and hold the reset button for 3 seconds or so that is located in the back of the sv1000 switch next to the power adapter#s connector. This process does not require the user to turn off the power for sv1000 and its connected target PCs.

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.

All Keys do not work on keyboard with KVM switch


GCS632U is designed to work with standard USB keyboard an mouse only. You have to make sure that you are not using any type of adapter such as PS/2 to USB adapter. To further isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:

1. Connect the USB keybord directly to th computer to make sure that the keyboard is working properly.

2. Make sure that the keyboard is connected to the keyboard port on your KVM switch. You may take a look under neath this GCS632U (near the USB ports) and you will see an icon where to connect the keyboar and mouse.

3. If you're still gettings the same problem, Try power cycling this kvm switch by disconnecting if from the computers and disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch and leave them disconnected for a minute or two.

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

5. If same problem exist, try using different USB keyboard.

NOTE: This KVM swith does not work correctly with wireless, gaming and smart keyboards because it's designed to work with standrd USB keyboard only.

Hotkey mode


This just worked for me. Using your PC keyboard, boot up to the PC first and then power up your mac. Hit the scroll lock twice and IMMEDIATELY hit enter. You have to go fast- click-click-click with no hesitation and it works great. I still can't toggle the hot keys to set up my mac keyboard, which I prefer using, but I'm assuming it takes the "right" timing on the keys. I'll keep trying.

Good luck!
