Run Two Computers With Single Mouse / Keyboard At Same Time

I know this sounds crazy, but im needing to run 2 computers with 1 keyboard and 1 mouse so that i can enter command codes to both sytems at the same time. (i.e. Not switching with kvm or using senergy), i know sounds crazy but with the amount of information what i need to do it will save me loads of time. No cut paste or networking hacks either please. I am looking for physical hardware options.

Using One Keyboard / Mouse For Two Computers At Same Time

I know what you're thinking: kvm, but i want to control both (computers) systems at the same time with the keyboard / mouse, not switch between them. Anybody know if such a device exists that allows this?

Connect 1 Mouse And 1 Keyboard To Multiple Pc ( Computers )

I am trying to connect 1 mouse and 1 keyboard to multiple computers (pc's) (although the mouse is optional). In a perfect world it would be a ps2 connector on the keyboard although usb is ok if it is simpler. Now i appreciate kvm switches exist but they do not do want i require, i need the keyboard to send it's inputs to all the computers at the same time, for example: i have notepad as the active window on all the computers and type "xy2lk" on the keyboard, then "xy2lk" should be entered into notepad on all the pc's. In total i need to connect the keyboard (and mouse) to 5 pc's and need a hardware solution rather than software, i'm wondering about modifications to the keyboard wire to connect 5 ps2 connectors but have no idea if this is possible. Has anyone got any ideas ?

Run Time Error 8005

I get a; "run time error 8005, port already open" message when i try to open the software for a audio rta, the phonic paa2; i got the error even before i connected the device to the port. The splash screen shows with that message box on top of it. No other errors. I checked device manager and both serial ports are enabled and show clean. The first port is occupied by another device. My parrellel port os disabled since my printer is on a usb port. I e-mailed the company and waiting for a reply. I'm running 2k w/sp4 and a nforce2 chipset mb.

Computers To Run Simulations

Please help me design a system. I like to perform numerical simulations that study long-term behavior of the solar system. I have written a program in c+ that propagates orbits forward in time based upon newton's laws. Lots of interesting simulations are only useful if they are run for several days or weeks straight. And there are lots of them to run. As a result, my single desktop computer that i also use for e-mail, web surfing, ect. Is insufficient. So i'd like to have a bank of computers to run solar system and exo-solar system simulations uninterrupted. Although i need a collection of computers, i do not need a collection of mouses, monitors, keyboards. I do not even need cd burners, audio cards, "a :drives" or even a hard drive per system. The computers in this computer bank don't need internet access either. So no need for browsers, firewalls, virus protection, etc. Each computer will do one thing, and one thing only: run a windows based executable written in c+, continuously, 24/7. Speed is most important for a number-crunching program. Intuitively, i would equate this to processor speed. But i've heard that the combo processor/bus speed is critical. For pure number-crunching in a windows based environment, what is the best processor?

If i had to build it without the advice of comp-techies, i'd go to compusa and buy a few of the compaq 3. 3 ghz machines (~$350), and throw away all but one of the keyboard & mouses. And i'd buy a kvm switch (keyboard, video, mouse). I'm guessing that there is a better alternative.going this route means that i am going to have to purchase extra mouses, extra keyboards, extra cd burners. I do need a way to export my data to other computers, so maybe a network card is critical. Should i be considering building something so i can have as many processors for the buck as possible? Or should i be considering over-the-counter stuff to keep it simple? (Simple is good!) Also, energy consumption is important.

Can I Run Both Ide & Sata Internal Harddrives At Same Time ?

My main hard drive is an sata drive; however, i have an extra internal 200 gig 7200rpm ide drive that i'd like to use as a backup drive. Can i run them both?

I want them both installed but i only want to boot off the sata and simply have the ide as a spare drive; does running both require that you boot from the ide? Is it simply as easy as selecting the boot device in the bios?

Wireless Mouse Operating Time

When a wireless mouse has a rating for "operating time" (such as many on newegg that say operating time: 18 months, for example), does that mean how long the battery is supposed to last, or how long the mouse is expected to live?

Keyboard Keys Press At Same Time Limitations

I've played games on cheap keyboards where i can only press so many keys at the same time, etc: go forward, duck, walk, strafe, jump etc. On a cheap keyboard i can only walk forward & strafe & duck, so if i try to jump, i can't because i'm pressing too many keys at the same time. Is there a program that will light up the buttons (like winxp joystick calibration) so i can see how many buttons i can hit at the same time? Or what keyboards will allow me to press more buttons?

I just killed my old biostar tforce4 board so while that is being rma'd i got a new asus m2n-e. Everything is working great besides me having to plug my usb mouse every time it reboot. I know the mouse is getting power because it lights up but it only responds if i replug it in after windows boots up. I installed the razor copperhead drivers and that still didnt fix it. Any ideas?

Ps/2 Logitech Elite Keyboard Le - Key Respond Time Problem

I recently purchased a (rather cheap) ps/2 to usb converter, for use with my new laptop, which has no ps/2 ports. This adapter has two female connectors, for a ps/2 keyboard and mouse - i only use the keyboard portion, my preferred mouse is usb. It works great - except for this unusual (yet rather problematic) issue, when alternating keys being held down. If i hold one key down, then quickly hold another down and release the first - it will register that second key press for a split second, then pause for an undesirably long amount of time, and then register the keypress as i hold it down. Not particularly easy to explain. It's not so much an issue in everyday typing, but while gaming, it is quite irritating. For example, if i hold down the s key, and quickly press the d key, release the s key while continuing to hold d there is an noticeable delay for d to respond as being 'held down. '

I'm not quite sure what this could attribute to - i assume it's the adapter itself being rather cheap and poorly produced, but i hope there is something that can be done. The keyboard itself is fine when used on any other computer, there is no such delay - nor is there one on the laptop's standard keyboard. I'm running windows vista home premum, and the keyboard is a ps/2 logitech elite keyboard le (wired).

Mouse Single Click Does Double Click

I used different mice (one with rubber ball and another optical) and both give me the same problems. The rubber ball mouse was connected via ps2 and the optical is usb. When i click-drag, two different situations happen. It's either i'm not able to drag at all (as if the mouse button was let go before i drag, but i'm sure my finger's pressed down on the left mouse button), or i get an incomplete click-drag (aka, the mouse acts like i released the left mouse button while dragging. )

Sometimes, the partial click-drag happens, and without letting go of the left mouse button, another area is click-dragged (along the mouse pointer path). It doesn't matter what application i'm using - word, photoshop, programming language editors, even trying to highlight text on ie's address bar is a gamble. I checked all my hardware configurations in control panel | system and windows doesn't show any irq conflicts or corrupt drivers. It says "this device is working properly" for my mouse and all usb ports. There are times that when i single click, the mouse "quantum-jumps" to a different location on the screen. Then i can drag the mouse from there. This doesn't happen very frequently but it's frequent enough to slow me down in the things i need to do. The interrupted drag happens probably around 90% of the time i try to perform the task. Then there's that "evil single click" that acts as a double click. If i were in ie, clicking the back button once will take me two pages back. This evil single click is probably the cause of why i'm unable to click-drag effectively.

From Time To Time Computer Freezes

I need help diagnosing what i believe is a hardware problem, since it happens with windows and linux. From time to time my computer freezes. I cannot move the mouse pointer and there is no reaction when i press a key on the keyboard. There is no bluescreen or any other error message. Also, it is not predicatble when the computer freezes. Sometimes i can work for hours without any problems and sometimes it freezes after 5 minutes. Generally, i noticed that it freezes earlier when i use windows instead of linux. Any idea what could be the problem or what i could do to diagnose it?

Keyboard / Mouse Unresponsive

I had put in my usb flash drive, then my computer rebooted, so the computer boots back up, and now the keyboard and mouse functions do not work, i can no longer log into windows. I thought maybe it was a random thing, so i reboot again and it does the same thing, no response from my input devices. So i check to make sure these devices are still working by hooking them up to my other pc, sure enough, they still work. So then i test to see if i can even get into the bios. Well, thankfully i can, so it must be something while booting to windows after the post, cause the computer sees the hardware and lets me use it during setup, but not on the windows login screen. I even tried different ports, and different keyboard and mice ( ps2 and usb ) and they all will not work on this now dysfunctional pc. Can somebody help me as to why this is happening? This is rather strange, i changed no setting. Why working only in bios?

Keyboard / Mouse Freeze On Xp

The mouse always works until you try to type something, and then the keyboard and mouse quit working. The computer itself is not frozen. Sometimes the computer has to be restarted 5+ times to get it to work right. Do you think it is an issue with the keyboard, or the ps/2 ports? I could not find a virus. It has a cheap lite-on keyboard and roswill mouse.

Mouse Headset And Keyboard Under 30 Each

I'm looking at either the microsoft habu or the razer diamondback, how different is the diamondback in terms of shape since i found the habu to be very comfortable? Headset wise i'm looking at the plantronics gamecom 367 or the sennheiser pc151 headset i don't really like logitech since the last two headsets i've had were logitech and their sound quality has been pretty awful. This combined with the complete lack of durability (one of the earpieces in my current headset died randomly and the other one fell off and refused to reattach) has put me off logitech. I was looking at the saitek eclipse ii or something in that sort of price range. I'm only willing to pay up to 30 for any of the peripherals.

Bluetooth Keyboard / Mouse

I have a customer looking for a wireless keyboard and mouse but he needs it to go 16 feet without any issues. I think the bt ones can do that no problem but they all seem to cost $200! Does anyone know if there is a decent kit in the $100 range? If not are there non-bt models like the 2. 4ghz ones that can do that range?

I saw some of the logitech wave kits with 2. 4ghz but in the reviews cust said they started having problems over 10 feet. Any suggestions would be great he doesn't want to spend $200+ on a kb/mouse but he needs the range!
