Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this switch is OS independent and should work so long as you have the applicable ports.

Question: will this work for dell inspiron and lattitude laptops?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry.
As long as your laptops have VGA and PS/2 ports the switch should work just fine.

Question: hi, is this KVM switch compatible with wide screens? if not, witch model is? (my Dlinkd DKVM-2KU isn't)
Answer: This KVM supports up to 2048 x 1536 video resolution through a VGA signal. Please confirm the video signal and the max resolution that you are attempting to reach on your screen and we can help pinpoint the most appropriate solution.

Question: The max resolution of my screen is 1920x1080@60htz
Answer: This switch should work for you. According to Avocent, the supported resolutions @ 60 Hz include:
640 x 480 (VGA)
800 x 600 (SVGA)
1024 x 768 (XGA)
1280 x 1024 (SXGA)

Question: how do I switch between units
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. There are two ways to switch targets. You can use the top push-buttons. Simply press the button that corresponds with your attached PC to gain access and control to that PC.

Or, you can use the hotkey sequence. To select your PC, activate the hotkey sequence by pressing ScrLk + ScrLk + (x) (x = PC port number). Each keystroke must be pressed within two seconds to validate the hotkey sequence.

Question: does this switch work with windows 8
Answer: Although this switch has not been officially tested by our team to work with Windows 8, we do not foresee any problems. These switches are OS independent and are compatible with PS2 and VGA drives.

Question: will this switch work between windows 7 and windows 98?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry.

Since this is a hardware based switch, without any software required, it should work for your application.

However, we have heard of issues with Windows 7 and KVMs regarding EDID (extended display identification data) polling issues, especially when switching between windows 7 and XP using DVI video. Whether your particular setup will have this issue, we cannot say, but Avocent switches are pretty solid and we have not had any issues.

Question: Can PS/2-to-USB adapters be used to connect to one of the computers that has only USB ports?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. When using adapters for KVMs, we find that converting a USB KVM to PS/2 is a little more stable than going from a PS/2 KVM to a USB computer. If it makes sense, you may get better results with the 2-port, USB version of this switch: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/2sv120bnd1.html

That being said, Avocent KVMs are pretty rock solid and provide a good handshake between the KVM and target computers. We couldn't guarantee it 100%, but it should be possible to use an adapter as you specify, without any issues.

Question: My server is about 20' from the PC where I want to put the switch. Are there extension cables available to take one of the sets to the server?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, there is not a standard extension cable for this unit. You may be able to use extension cables for the PS/2 and VGA connections but we would not recommend it.

Question: will this switch work with windows 8
Answer: Although this switch has not been officially tested by our team to work with Windows 8, we do not foresee any problems. We haven't heard of any issues either. This particular switch is hardware based and operating system independent. It should be compatible with most PS2 and VGA style computers.

Question: Can you disable the hotkey sequences for switching or cycling between units?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. We are not familiar with a way to turn off the hotkey switching, but it is possible to change the activation sequence.

Here are instructions listed in the Quick Start guide, linked on the product page:

Command: Define Hotkey Preceding Sequence

Description: Select the hotkey preceding sequence from the following: ScrLk, Cap Lock, Esc, F12 or Num Lock

Procedure: Using Hotkey sequence: ScrLk + ScrLk + H + (y) where y = Scroll Lock, Cap Lock, Esc, F12 or Num Lock


Using Push-Button sequence : Hold down last button for three seconds, then press (y) key
