Troubleshooting Tips

Keyboard: If your keyboard is not functional, not detected, or there is a keyboard error, check the following:

  • Make sure that the keyboard is properly connected to the computer and to the KVM switch. Check that the keyboard is plugged into the correct USB/PS2 keyboard port and not the USB/PS2 mouse port.
  • Verify that the keyboard works when plugged into the computer directly.
  • If you have multiple operating systems installed on your computer, please contact your motherboard/computers manufacture for information on enabling USB/PS2 support on your system.

Mouse: If your mouse is not functional, not detected or there is a mouse error, check the following:

  • Make sure that the mouse is properly connected to the computer and to the KVM switch. Check that the mouse is plugged into the correct USB/PS2 mouse port and not the USB/PS2 keyboard port.
  • Verify that the mouse works when plugged into the computer directly.
  • Try using a different mouse.
  • If you are having trouble with the mouse movement, try resetting the switch by pressing Scroll Lock + Scroll Lock + M.
  • Do not move the mouse or press any mouse buttons when switching from one PC to another.
  • Try resetting the mouse by unplugging it from the DKVM for about 3 seconds and reconnection it.

Video: If the image on your monitor is not clear, check the following:

  • Verify that the video monitor cables are inserted properly.
  • Try lowering the resolution and refresh rate of your monitor.
  • Try using a shorter video cable.

            Buona sera,
            sapete dirmi qual è la frequenza di aggiornamento del monitor con il sistema operativo Windows 10 più indicata per lo switch? Ogni volta che accendo il pc mi appare la scritta out of range e ci impiego ogni volta circa 10 minuti per ripristinare l’immagine sul monitor collegando e scollegando il connettore.
            Si può risolvere questo problema?
