    I ran an Aten CS-62U for around 12 months or so using it with a Mac G3 and a PC and using a Mac keyboard and MS mouse. Worked perfectly. Then one day a couple of weeks ago, the switching simply would not work. Could not go from PC to Mac, and the little light showing the Mac was on on the CS-62U would did not come on. In that configuration, I had the Mac as 1 and the PC as 2.
    Figured it had just died. Now I need to link two PCs using a KVM, bought a new CS-62U and same thing. I cannot invoke the the Hotkey Mode at all to activate the switching device. My email is [email protected] if anyone has any suggestions.

    I have the same problem with a brand new CS62U 2 port switch not switching between 2 PCs. Neither the hotkey mode or double clicking scroll lock works. WOuld be grateful if anybody has an answer.

    I had a blackout that reset both my systems yesterday. When they came back, the KVM would listen to the keyboard during GRUB (so I could choose my OS) but not afterwards - it wouldn't even pass the mouse or keyboard info through to the system. (I know the M&KB work because I tried plugging them straight in - they work fine.)

    I just tried swapping my receiver to the other USB port, and it would let the keyboard and mouse work on the first system, and scan between the systems, but I couldn't *stop* it scanning, and it wouldn't pass keyboard or mouse through to the second system, only the first (in fact, I think it was passing ALL the commands through to the first system).

Are you sure, the usb cable belonging to the keyboard is plugged in the appropriate slot?
I have a wireless keyboard/mouse, so I have only 1 usb cable going into the switch. The first time, is plugged it into the slot of the mouse, and the switch did not work, so I plugged the cable in the other slot, and now everything works properly.

I've been trying to switch between two PCs and it would only let me use the keyboard, mouse and monitor of whichever booted up first. It wouldn't let me switch between them. It would let me go into hotkey mode when I used the numlock key and the - key from the number keypad on the right of my keyboard. When the capslock key light and scrLk light where alternatingly flashing, I then pressed either 1 or 2 on the number pad (right hand side of keypad) and then enter. This worked! It won't work if I use the normal number keys above the standard (QWERTY) keyboard!

You might want to try moving the RF receiver to the other USB port. I had a similar problem where the Scroll Lock would not work (and thus no switching), and swapping the RF receiver to the other USB port resolved it. (Don't know why though)

I emailed the manufacturers who were very friendly and had a few suggestions, none of which worked. In the end they suggested I return it to the retailer for a replacement. I have done this and the new one seems to work OK.

Hi, I can't remember what buttons to push on my keyboard to switch from one computer to the other with my belkin 2 port kvm switck? can you help me, Ive just set up the system in another office. Thanks...


Short answer:
There are two ways to switch from one machine to the other with the keyboard
1. Press Scroll Lock key twice, then the Up or Down arrow key.
2. Press Scroll Lock key twice, then enter 01 or 02.

Long answer (from the manual posted at www.belkin.com):
You can select which computer to operate by either the front-panel push button
located on the top of the Switch or through hot key commands. Note that it will
take 1-2 seconds for the video to display after switching. This is due to the
refresh of the video signal. A re-synchronization of the mouse and keyboard
signal also takes place. This is normal operation and ensures that proper
synchronization is established.
You can conveniently change ports on the Switch through a keyboard command
sequence using the "SCROLL LOCK" key and up and down arrow keys. To send
commands to the Switch, press the "SCROLL LOCK" key twice within two seconds.
You will hear a beep for confirmation. Then you can press the up or down arrow
keys to switch between ports.

You can switch directly to any port by entering the Switch port number you wish
to use. For example, if you press "SCROLL LOCK", "SCROLL LOCK", "2", the
computer on port 2 will be selected.
AutoScan Mode
In AutoScan mode, the Switch remains on one port for eight seconds before
switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed.
To enable AutoScan mode, press "SCROLL LOCK", "SCROLL LOCK", "S".
Note: There is no mouse or keyboard control in this mode by design, in order to
prevent errors. If it were enabled, the user could move the mouse or use the
keyboard while the KVM Switch is switching to the next port. This could interrupt
communication between the computer and Switch that might cause erratic mouse
movement, or result in errant display of characters when using the keyboard.
To disable AutoScan mode, press the space bar.

MY PT Cruiser Functional transmitter and the one to be programmed both have no "PANIC" Button . How I programme the spare Fob


If you don't have the Panic button then sorry, you can't program yourself, the dealer will have to program it to the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) module in the vehicle, using their DRB scan tool.

When i connect my laptop to the tv i get sound but no pic.


Computers have two seperate systems - one for video and one for sound.

The only computer (or laptop) connection that carries both video and sound is HDMI. If you do not have a HDMI/DVI connector on the back of your computer, then you will have to use the VGA-composite or s-video connectors to display your PC's output on an external monitor like an LCD TV.

On both my HP and Dell laptops the display settings (Start/Control Panel/Personalize/Display Settings) allow two modes - single or dual monitor mode. Single monitor mode allows me to switch between any one of three possible video outputs - VGA-composite, S-Video or laptop screen, or a split-desktop (display spread over two seperate monitors). Dual monitor mode allows the same display on any two of three possible video outputs.

Switching is performed using the fn keys on the keyboard (fn key plus the F2, F8, etc. function key with the display marking). You guys use single monitor mode until you figure out what your are doing. Select VGA-composite or S-Video.

Non-HDMI sound to your TV monitor or sound system must be obtained from your laptop's Headphone or S/PDIF jacks. Headphone is stereo and S/PDIF is 5.1 surround sound. Headphone is electrical, but S/PDIF may be electrical or optical (laser light). You must set the sound jack that you intend to use as the default on the PC control panel (Start/Control Panel/Sound).

None of these connectors is two-way in the context of an LCD monitor - your PC cannot record a TV picture or sound from the external monitor. To accomplish this you must purchase a video converter box that converts cable TV or video+sound inputs to USB format usable by your laptop. Do this and you can turn your laptop into a Tivo recorder/DVD burner using Beyond TV, Sage TV or a variety of other software packages.

Fob wont work the locks


I have done this procedure for my peugeot 307, but you can give it a try for your Pug expert and let me know if it works.
Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes then after connecting the battery perform the following steps
1. Turn the Ignition switch to the ON position using your key.
2. Press the LOCK button for 10 seconds. It will set your ECU in programming mode.
3. Remove the key and wait for 10 seconds.
4. Press the buttons on the key repetedly for operation (lock und unlock doors) to synchronise the key signals.
5. Again turn the ignition on and start the engine.
6. Turn the ignition OFF

If fails in step 4, then disconnect the battery and reconnect it and wait about 10 minutes to check the remote. Some new ecu units synchronises itselfs if you disconnect the battery while in programiing mode.

GeForce 8400 upgrade problem


I would try two things: One pull the GeF 8400 out and boot as you normally did, install the drivers for the 8400. Then reinsert the Vid Card (8400) and when it looks for driver viola... If that fails:
Second if you can get in at all try the old F8 key on the boot up...and see if you can get in using SAFE MODE...and install your drivers from that point. Assuming the second set fails update the video driver using device manager.
That's a great vid card...good luck..leave a rating please.

Remote keyless entry


“CUSTOMER LEARN” MODE This feature is only available on domestic vehicles or those which have a U.S. country code designator. This procedure requires access to at least two valid Sentry Keys. If two valid Sentry Keys are not available, Sentry Key programming will require the use of a scan tool.
The steps required to program Sentry Keys with two valid Sentry Keys follows:
1. Obtain the blank Sentry Key(s) that need to be programmed. Cut the keys to match the ignition lock cylinder mechanical key codes. 2. Insert one of the two valid Sentry Keys into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch to the ON position. 3. After the ignition switch has been in the ON position for longer than three seconds, but no more than fifteen seconds, cycle the ignition switch back to the OFF position. Replace the first valid Sentry Key in the ignition lock cylinder with the second valid Sentry Key and turn the ignition switch back to the ON position. The second valid Sentry Key must be inserted within 15 seconds of removing the first valid Sentry key. 4. About ten seconds after the completion of Step #3 , the indicator light will start to flash and a single audible chime tone will sound to indicate that the system has entered the "Customer Learn" programming mode. 5. Within sixty seconds of entering the "Customer Learn" programming mode, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, replace the valid Sentry Key with a blank Sentry Key transponder, and turn the ignition switch back to the ON position. 6. About ten seconds after the completion of Step #5 , a single audible chime tone will sound and the indicator light will stop flashing and stay on solid for three seconds and then turn off to indicate that the blank Sentry Key has been successfully programmed. The SKREES will immediately exit the "Customer Learn" programming mode and the vehicle may be started using the newly programmed Sentry Key.

NOTE: The Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Transmitter will also be programmed during this procedure. These steps must be completed in their entirety for each additional Sentry Key to be programmed. If any of the above steps are not completed in the given sequence, or within the allotted time, the SKREES will exit the "Customer Learn" programming mode and the programming will be unsuccessful. The SKREES will also automatically exit the "Customer Learn" programming mode if:
  1. It sees a non-blank Sentry Key when it should see a blank.
  2. If it has already programmed four (4) valid Sentry Keys.
  3. If the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position for more than about fifty (50) seconds.

NOTE: If you attempt to start the vehicle while in “Customer Learn” mode (LED flashing), the vehicle will behave as though an invalid key is being used (i.e. the engine will stall after two (2) seconds of running). No faults will be logged.
NOTE: Once a Sentry Key has been programmed to a particular vehicle, it cannot be used on any other vehicle.

Why does my key fob only open drivers door


this how a dealer does it:
DOOR CONTROL TRANSMITTER
REGISTRATION
1. REGISTRATION OF RECOGNITION CODE
HINT:
 The add mode is used to retain the already registered codes while registering a new recognition code.
This mode is used when adding a transmitter. If the number of the registered codes exceeds 4, the previously
registered code will be correspondingly erased in order, starting from the first registered code.
 The rewrite mode is used to erase all the previously registered codes and register only new recognition
codes. This mode is used when exchanging the transmitter or the door control receiver for new one.
 The prohibition mode is used to erase all the registered codes and cancel the wireless door lock function.
Use this mode when the transmitter is lost.
 The confirmation mode is to confirm how many recognition codes have already been registered before
an additional registration of a recognition code.
 All the following registration procedures must be performed in order continuously.
(a) The vehicle should be in the following conditions.
(1) The key is not inserted in the ignition key cylinder.
(2) Driver’s door is OPENED. (The other doors are CLOSED)
(3) Driver’s door is UNLOCKED.
(b) Perform the following operations to select the desired mode.
(1) Insert and remove the key from the ignition switch twice within 5 seconds.
(2) After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the
key into the ignition key cylinder and remove it.
(3) After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the
key into the ignition key cylinder and close the door.
(4) Turn the ignition switch from LOCK to ON and back to LOCK at approximately 1 second interval 1
to 5 times to select a mode.(2 times for rewrite mode) Then remove the key from the ignition key cylinder.
(5) After selecting a mode, the integration relay automatically performs the power door
LOCK-UNLOCK operation within 3 seconds to inform the selected mode.
(c) Register the new recognition codes :
(1) Within 40 seconds after the add mode or the rewrite mode has been selected, press the LOCK and
UNLOCK switches on the transmitter switch simultaneously for 1.0 - 1.5 seconds.
Within 3 seconds after the previous operation, press either one of the switches for more than 1.0
seconds.
(2) Within 3 seconds after the transmitter switch has been turned OFF, the LOCK-UNLOCK operation
will be automatically performed once if the registration of the recognition code of the transmitter is
completed correctly. In case the LOCK-UNLOCK operation is performed twice, the registration of
recognition code has failed. Perform the registration procedure from the beginning once again.
(3) If the multiple transmitter to be registered, repeat step (c) within 40 seconds after the previous registration.
this is why the dealer charges for this

Problems on paper jam (just after the selftest)mode switches blinking


You may have to reset the printer. I believe these are the directions to follow:

Re-initialize the HP All-in-One Force the HP All-in-One to reinitialize by following the steps below:
  1. Turn the unit off by pressing the ON button.
  2. Disconnect the power cord.
  3. Wait five seconds, then reconnect the power cord.
  4. If necessary, turn the unit back on and try reading the photo card again.
  5. If the unit fails to read the card again, reset the All-in-One. Repeat Steps 1 – 4, but before plugging the unit back in, press and hold the # and 6 keys on the HP All-in-One numeric keypad. Continue to hold these keys down for a few seconds after plugging the unit back in to reset it. Once the All-in-One reestablishes communication with the computer, reset the language and country/region.
