My server is attached to a KVM switch but is not showing on the monitor.

I have several servers on my KVM switch. I have a monitor, keyboard and mouse being shared by all.  some of my servers are not showing up on my monitor nor responding to the keyboard.  I can Remote into one of the the servers and I can verify the other is working by checking all the other workstations that connect to it.  Any trouble shooting tips on KVM switches.  Both connect to the switch with a standard monitor cable and PS2 connctors.  One of the servers uses a converter cable to convert USB to PS2.

Sounds like it's either a KVM problem or a cable problem, can you swap the cables of a working connection to one that doesn't work and post the results
What model of KVM switch is it?
