KVM Switch does not work in the Vista?

    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

    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.
