Kvm switch won't stay on second computer, switches back

Hello. I have had this KVM switch working for a few years now, although I did have some issues like what I'm going to describe at one point and they seemed to resolve themselves. I just got a new pc computer and got everything set up again. When I click the kvm to go to my mac, it switches over and I can see the mac desktop. However, it only stays for about 3 seconds and then switches back again. Also, I am randomly hearing the sound that I hear when I do switch over -- when I have not hit the kvm switch.

    thanks for the response! one thing i tried (which seemed to work before) was just shutting everything down for a bit, unplugging things, and starting from scratch. it seemed to reset things.

    however, it didn't work this time. i'm also wondering what the lights mean on the switch. when i'm on my pc, both lights are on, but the one on the left blinks on and off like every 3 seconds. when i hit it to go to the mac, only the left one is on, for about 3 seconds, and then when it goes off (as it does on the pc), no lights are on and it switchs back by itself to the mac.

    do the lights mean something? like, is it saying that the mac is not getting enough power?

    Exactly as described. PC1 shows on the monitor, I can switch to PC2 then back again - all fine! Then for no reason I can't switch to PC2 - it bounces!! PC2 shows blank for a second then straight back to PC1.

    I have the exact same problem with my Belkin.  Thing is it worked well for a month and then when I click to go to the second computer, it reverts back to the first computer.

You might try disabling any power saving schemes in use on either computer. The KVM (I believe) gets its power through the ports and one computer may be shutting down power.

New IOGear GCS632U KVM inop

First, disconnect the KVM switch from the computer(s). Disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch, including speakers (if there is). Leave the KVM disconnected for 5 minutes.

Before you reconnect the KVM switch, make sure that the computers are turned off. Re-connect the KVM switch to the computers, and then reconnect the keyboard and mouse.

Turn on the first computer, followed by the second one. If you are still not getting any light indicator, then the KVM switch is dead.

You may contact IOGEAR through 866-946-4327.

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!

KVM unresponsive


Try swapping the KVM cables from the 2008 computer into the Vista computer and see if the problem follows the 2008 computer. This KVM gets the drivers it needs from the OS and the IOGear web site does not show any support for 2008.
