Question about Inland 08216 2-port KVM Switch
I purchased an Inland KVM switch for switching between my laptop and desktop. When booting the laptop first everything works fine. However, when I boot the desktop first, it only recognizes the monitor. The keyboard and mouse will work when plugged directly into the desktop.
Any ideas or solutions? I have traded all cables and still not luck.
There is a natural order of things in pc's. It sounds to me like you may have an issue with the pc being just quicker than the lap top and it is loading in a hodge podge way.
I wish I could help you more but I would try going to a ps2 mouse and keyboard if you have the usb type and if not swap these two out as these must pass before the unit will even boot. Also - do you have a slave drive marked cable select? These things upset a delicate balance. I would also email the maker and see if they can help.
For a more definitive answer please send the make - model and operating systems on each pc - lap and desk - also have you done all your updates? Try updating the driver on the KVM website as well. These issues usually are a small matter to get lined out.
Let me know how it goes and send ur pc info
