How have you got them wired up?

keyboard cable, mouse and monitor to a Belkin switch box.....very simple!
All I have to do is press a key(s) on the keyboard to change the screen when both switched on.

Press the Scroll Lock twice.

Which belkin "switch box" is it? I had a problem with one and returned it; got a d-link and it's excellent.

If you give the model number, someone should be able to find the correct combination.
