    The KVM is 4 port switch from Compaq. It is PS2 the mouse is Microsoft Wireless Intelimouse Explorer 2.0. I am using an adapter to go from USB to PS2 . The mouse is part of a wireless desktop. Microsoft Wireless Elite Desktop. Thanks

    The adapter is the problem. You can delete the driver for the mouse in XP and reboot. Once you reboot XP reinstalls driver. Mouse will work the way it should until next reboot. Thats the only way I have been able to get switch to work in XP. It does not work in Vista either. 2000 and 98 are fine.

Hi

What type of mouse do you have plugged into the KVM ?? PS2 or USB and what type of KVM switch are you using.

Respond back and I will look into it for you.

    Hi

    The adapter may be the culprit. Try to isolate the setup by removing the adapter USB to PS2 and then try a traditional PS2 mouse.

    After changing the layout to isolate reboot the computers and then switch to see if the mouse works on both.

    Let me know if you need more assistance.

Wireless keyboard and mouse works fine with computer but when I attempt to use it on the f1dh104l switch it does not recognize the mouse or keyboard. it is a dell e6400 laptop that i'm attempting to...


the problem is that most Wireless Keyboard and Mice combos use Composite USB, the KVM however is expecting one signal on each entry port (one for mouse, and one for Keyboard).

replace yoru wireless Combo for a standard Keyboard and Mouse to make this work.

A work around would be using a MS Wireless Mouse and a different brand of Wireless Keyboard using both Wireless receivers and plug them into different ports on the KVM

The mouse goes in the opposite direction from i where i'm trying to navigate it.


Check whether you have switched the Primary and Secondary buttons of the Mouse. Please click on Start>Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Mouse. Then Uncheck the Primary and Secondary buttons of the Mouse to resolve the issue.

Iogear MiniView Micro USB Plus KVM Switch (GCS632U) Problem


The GCS632U does not have any form of display emulation which may cause video problems if the boot up is not done right. What IOGear recommends is when booting up a computer the KVM should stay on that computer until it comes to a desktop. What this does is it allow the KVM to pass the EDID information from the monitor to computer and that should help.

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.

4-port usb kvw switch #GCS634U


The GCS634U is designed and tested to work only with a standard USB keyboard and mouse. However, most wireless keyboards and mice work with it, but they cannot guarantee any specific model or brand that would work correctly.

As you can see, this KVM switch is a bus powered device (meaning it only gets power from the USB ports of the computers). If the computer cannot provide enough power for the KVM switch to function correctly, then the wireless keyboard will be affected.

You may try using the IOGEAR GKM541RA. It's tested to work with the GCS634U. Or you may also try using a self-powered USB hub (meaning, it has it's own power adapter) and connect it in between the KVM switch and the computer. That self-powered USB hub will be the one that will add up power to the KVM switch and help it to function properly.

It is compatible with a wireless mouse, as long as it is a PS2 mouse.  if it is USB you could try using a converter, but it may not work.

Mouse and keyboard not recognized on second computer


Solution for the mouse. I have 8 KVM's. Most of my computers work with the KVMs. On 1 inland KVM the logitect and Microsoft optical mice do not work on one computer (but work with the other computers). They both are USB. I hook them up with a USB to PS2 adapter. If I use a ps2 ball mouse connected to the KVM the mouse works. All the Mice work if I directly connect them. Since I do not want a ball mouse I got a Frisby optical PS2 mouse. It works with all the computers on the KVM's.

I do not have a solution for the Keyboard yet. 1 computer (ASUS MB) on my trendnet or belkin 4 postion KVM does not recognize the keyboard.

Make sure the keyboard/mouse receiver is connected to the keyboard port on the KVM -- there is an embossed icon near each port -- mouse and keyboard.

KVM freeze, mouse and keyboard failure upon keypress


When ever trouble shooting a KVM that has a problem with one computer always swap the cables at the computer end -- that will tell you if you have a computer or KVM issue.
