Question about Belkin F1DK102P 2-port KVM Switch

Problem with laptop connection

I have a 2-port Belkin KVM switch with the aim of switching between my desktop and a laptop docking station. Works like a dream when both machines are switched on, but if the laptop is off (or not present on the docking station), then there is a big delay on the mouse on the desktop machine. Is this expected behaviour?

KVM's work best when you are using the same or similar type of hardware however there might be an issue with your video card interfacing with the KVM. I would switch the Video cables and see if the problem moved or disappeared. If the problem moves, then I would suspect the video card is the culprit. Since many problems can be traced to software compatibility issues, I would check to see if there is an updated driver for your video card and or your monitor first. If the problem disappears it could possible be a loose cable connection on the destop PC or the KVM itself. I would also try a different set of cables.

USB Mouse works, keyboard does not

You will need to update the drivers on the computer for the docking station. It will be the windows seven drivers or lack of them that is causing a failure to remap the usb ports that the wireless dongle is plugged into.

Keyboard not working on one side of switch

the GCS632U has keyboard and mouse emulation that may not function correctly with docking stations. To ensure the KVM it self is working correctly I would suggest plugging the single USB from the KVM directly into the laptop and see if you have the same keyboard problem. This will at least tell you if the KVM is working properly or not.

IOgear KVM not working with laptop

First, you have to make sure that the KVM switch is directly connected to your laptop, and NOT to a docking station.

This KVM switch is designed to work with direct connections to the computers.

Second, the light indicator on the KVM switch is not an indicator for power. It's an indicator to see which port is active. If your laptop is connected to port 2, but the focus of the KVM is in port 1, then the port 1 will have a light, not the port 2.

You may also refer to the user manual of the KVM.

Thank you!

I am using a laptop desktop with the KVM GCS632U Iogear switch. Has always worked great but just started to give "input not supported". When it boots up in Windows shows on screen then shows the input...

If you are using a docking station with laptop try directly connecting the KVM cable to the laptop. Also try swapping the cables between the two computers to see if you have a problem with a bad KVM cable. If you have a bad KVM IOGear has a three year warranty on their KVMs and you should be able to contact them to get a replacement.

Usage of KVM 2-Port USB between 'thin client' and 'Desktop' stopt

KVM are not the most reliable and will fail sometimes. The quickest way to get it back is to plug into a different USB port for the one that is active.

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.

Belkin (F1DK102P) 2-port KVM Switch freezes

We have the same model and the same problem. The scroll lock combo did not work for us. You need to press Ctrl, Ctrl then up or down arrow.

The manual was a load of old Tom *** as it did not mention this.

Belkin 2 port kvm switch problem

Probably u need to install docking software, so it knows that it will be an external video and not the laptop display default.
Check with dell support for that software

KVM switch mouse trouble

Does a mouse work if plugged directly into the laptop? Sometimes you have to change a laptop in the BIOS to allow a PS2 mouse in addition or instead of the touchpad. It may not be recognizing the KVM as a mouse. Try plugging the mouse right into the laptop and see if that works.
