How to set up Compaq Series 4110 8-port KVM Switch & select computer

I acquired a Compaq KVM switch, but have no idea how to operate it. There is no obvious way to select the desired computer to control. How is that done?

    That seems to be just what I need. Thank you.

    A side question. Whenever I tried to get to the link with FireFox running under linux it hung up, but with FireFox running on Windows XP I was able to connect and download the manual. Why would that be?

    Thanks again.

    Richard

The Compaq 4110 KVM switch was actually manufactured by Apex which is now part of Avocent. Your switch is Compaq's rebranding of the Apex/Outlook EL-80DT from Avocent.

The key to display the KVM switch menu should be PrintScreen. Here is a link to the user manual:

Your answer seems to be on page 34.

    This is a good question, but unfortunately I don't have an answer for you. You may ask this question in another post on FixYa. Maybe a Firefox expert would be able to help.

When you click on the scroll lock twice you will switch between the computers.
Did you manage to get a manual on CD when you procured this one ? I am interested in the CD which allows you to program each computer to show a different name..

Laptop will not connect properly


If possible directly connect the KVM cables to the laptop computer. Try to avoid connecting the KVM cables to a docking station. Also if your KVM has manual port selection buttons on the front of the KVM try holding that button for about five seconds when switching ports.

KVM Monitor resolution out of frequency and will not display


Restart your system in a VGA mode (you will find this below Safe Mode, by pressing F8 before windows is loading) This way yours screen resolution will be at the very low frequency then you can change it back to the resolution you like. Eg. 800x600 or 1024x768. Remember to keep your Screen refresh rate lower like 75Mhz
