    any electrical shocks are not good and a sign of poor grounding.
    No need to apologize for your english, but please enter your country in your user profile.

    There are different types of KVM -USB and Ps/2

    Needs to specify "some" and "doesn't work".

    For example, if you have a KVM that has only USB connectors, then yes, some computers may not have USB keyboard support. And yes, I have seen KVM switches that cause keyboard and screen anomalies on random computers while working just fine with others.
