I had the same switch, and when it went bad, it stopped recognizing my video card, mouse and keyboard, all at the worst times (In the middle of Deathmatches lol)
Try a different keyboard first, and if it still does it, most likely the switch is going.

Hi I am having a problem with my KVM2 switch recognizing my MS 2000 keyboard. The Keyboard is usb with the adapter on. It reads my mouse but not the keyboard. I have connected the keyboard directly to...


Once you have plugged the keyboard directly into each unit and have loaded the drivers what you need to do is this:
Plug the keyboard back into the KVM switch.
Now take an extra keyboard, a PS2 if you have one, and plug it directly into the PC and use it to reboot the PC while the other keyboard is plugged into the KVM
(so you actually have 2 keyboards plugged in)
After you reboot if it doesn't install automatically try to install it manually with the extra keyboard
You might have to reboot 2 or 3 times.

Be sure to email me back if you have any more questions orif you need any assistance with this solution. Thank you

Have a GCS634U KVM that keeps failing to switch. acts like it lost the keyboard


This GCS634U was designed to work with USB keyboards and mice.

First, you need to make sure that your using a direct USB keyboard (no PS/2 to USB adapter).

Second, connect the keyboard directly to the computer and make sure that it's working correctly.

Third, check the connection between the KVM switch and the computers. Try to connect the USB cables of your KVM into different USB ports of the computers.

Last, try to use different USB keyboard to see if the issue is the KVM or the keyboard.

Try to power cycle the KVM switch. Disconnect the KVM from the computers and make sure that there's no even one cable connected to the computers.

Leave the KVM switch disconnected for 10 minutes, then plug it back in. Reboot one computer first and wait until it's fully rebooted. Turn on the second one untill all computers are fully booted up.

If same problem occur, then you need to contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device.

Thank you and good luck!

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.

USB mouse not recognized


I have similar problem. 2 inland KVM's (both have PS2 inputs, one has USB outputs) do not light or recognize my usb mouse with a PS2 adapter. They do recognize a PS2 ball mouse on the KVM's however. One of the computers (Sony vaio 1.5 GHz) does recognize a usb mouse with adapter on 2 other KVM's (Old Belkin and a Trendnet) (the second computer I have not tried in those configurations). Next I will try an optical mouse with a PS2 fitting. That did work with a fifth KVM at an auto business last week.

Mac and Vista


Operating System doesn't deal anything on your problem. The problem depends on the brand of you computers or the type of keyboard you are using.

The GCS632U is designed to work with standard USB keyboard and mouse only. And wireless and gaming keyboards and mice are not guaranteed to work correctly with this KVM switch. If any one of you is using the new Mac Aluminum keyboard, this keyboard will not work with the older version of the GCS632U. But IOGEAR releases a new batch of GCS632U that would work with the Apple Aluminum keyboard.

If you have an Apple Aluminum keyboard that does not work with the GCS632U, you may contact the IOGEAR Tech support and they will process a Return Merchandize Authorization (RMA) if your device is still under the warranty period.

To resolve your keyboard issue, try to power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers, disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch. Leave it disconnected for two minutes. After two minutes, reconnect everything and reboot the computers.

My Keyboard only works on one PC but the monitor and mouse works on both?


Plug the key board and mouse directly into the computer that doesn't work, let it recognize the hardware and then reboot. After reboot, plug the keyboard and mouse back into the KVM and reboot again. That solved the problem for me. Most likely, the computer that doesn't work has never loaded the driver for that key board and does not recognize the input sent from the KVM.
