Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Due to the varied nature of individual environments, detailed product support is beyond the scope of this simple FAQ. We suggest contacting the manufacturer directly for product support. https://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/support/accessories/KVM2KIT

One area to look at would be issues caused by the way Windows 7 uses EDID (Extended display identification data). It may not be passing through the KVM properly for Windows 7.

Question: HOW DO I SWITHC BETWEEN THE TWO COMPUTERS, AN ELECTRONIC SWITCH?
Answer: This 2-port KVM uses "hot key" switching (keyboard shortcuts). To switch between the "targets" tap the [Scroll Lock] key twice in rapid succession.

Question: Will KVM2Kit work with Wide Screen and Non-Wide Screen connected Monitors
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The only resolution specifications we can find for this discontinued KVM state the unit will support resolutions up to 1920 x 1440, which is a non-wide screen resolution.

It is however, a simple pass-through type device, so should accommodate widescreen resolutions up to the specified max. That being said, without confirmation from the manufacturer, we could not guarantee widescreen support for this legacy device.
