KVM Switch does not work in the Vista?

    Hi:
    There are two identical PCs sitting side by side. Each PC has its own
    monitor, keyboard and mouse that cluttering on the desk. Then, I started
    using KVM Switch which I purchased last year.

    When I attempted to switch from first PC to second PC by hitting [scroll
    lock] twice, instead going to a second PC, it goes to a different account in
    the same/first PC.

    Wonder how to set-up the MiniView Micro 2-Port KVM Switch with Built-in KVM
    Cables?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you have to hit scroll lock twice AND a keyboard number e.g. 1 or 2 ??
    That's how my KVM switch works.

  3. If I remember correctly you can use an escape sequence to change the
    scrl-lck/scrl-lck to ctrl-ctrl, that is, two taps on the ctrl key. Maybe that
    will help.

    KVMs in general are a pain and surprisingly picky, some wont work
    with one os or another others object to certain hardware...

    Umm. Mine had a little button you push to switch computers. Sadly,
    it's obselete since my new machine is all USB.

    You can buy a relatively inexpensive cable that plugs into a USB slot and
    splits into PS/2 keyboard and mouse cables. Works fine with Vista.
