Okay.. so I have this Logitech G15 gaming keyboard and love it.. My only problem is how much power is required to run it. As is I have it running into my KVM and it works almost fine as is with just it connected with no other devices. If I connect a mouse or something TOO much power is drawn and it just shuts off for 3secs, then tries to turn on and goes off for 3 sec, and repeat.

It switches between pcs fine.. so the only problem is power.. Any idea how I can give this guy more power? Maybe I will have to operate on the usb cord and do something?

The kvm I use is IOGEAR MiniView Extreme Multimedia KVMP Switch.

Edit -

Seems to be I kind of fixed it.. It has 2 extra USB ports on the back, I guess for extra devices. I plugged it in there and I guess those USB ports run off the Power Adapter? Because it works fine now in that spot. Whereas I had it in the USB port on the front marked Keyboard before. My dream come true.. My logitech G15 + KVM..

You just beat me to it there with your edit. I was about to suggest checking the power adapter when that iogear webpage crashed my browser!

Glad you've got it working :whistling:

Thanks for the reply. I almost gate up on trying to get a KVM for this keyboard, when i searched about it on google people said it was impossible. Even though the KVM was 100 dollars its well worth it since I can use this keyboard, as well as the sound, mic, and another usb device between the two computers.

I agree - they are extremely useful at times. I've got a Belkin Omniview 4 port KVM which I use whenever I have to work on customers machines at home. It allows me to use one monitor/mouse/keyboard although it doesnt have the USB option. Still much better than having 2 lots of everything, especially monitors!
