Video scramble at boot up only

We have a Belkin Omniview Pro2 (F1DA116T) switch and are having problems with the video. I know it's not the driver, the monitor, the video card but think it's in the switch. The video is scrambled only at bootup. I've tried another cable, another monitor, booting in safemode (same problem there), connecting one of the 10 computers connected to it away from the kvm and it's boots up fine.  All 10 computers do the same thing (video scrambled at boot up only). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi MonaClark.. Sounds like a loss of sync problem with either your monitor or the KVM switch itself - you've swapped out the monitor so? The reviews of this unit are generally good, suggesting that there's not much to go wrong.. You might try yet another monitor, perhaps a CRT this time, just to see what happens.. If all else fails, contact Belkin and see what they suggest..

Thanks, vertsyeux. Hmmm, not sure I can find a CRT on campus. I've tried several monitors (LCDs) and I have contacted Belkin. Wanted to see what you guys had to say. The strange thing is the "scrambleness" is only on bootup so I thought the experts might have some suggestions.

turns out I needed a new switch. Once it was installed everything worked
