I have tried twice now with two different products to share a logitech G510 between my two machines. Starting on the windows 7 machine, everything works great, then I hit the button to switch the kvm to the windows 10 machine, again after a few seconds everything works, it is not until I switch back that the problems start. Most times the keyboard will not work after switching back. Sometimes I can get it to work by switching back and forth twice, but it is irregular at best. The first model kvm I tried caused all kinds of other problems with my USB system- causing other devices to not register (external HD, flash drives, mice, etc) when inserted, but still everything would work when first booted up, until I hit the switch and then tried to switch back. This model: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M66SD79/
And the second kvm by Sabrent https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074TZKGVR didn't wreak havoc so much as it just didn't work after trying to switch back.

Wtf is wrong with this windows 7 machine such that it fails to register a USB device that works fine a few minutes prior? Everything else works great and there are no other problems with USB until I try to use a kvm.

Thanks!
