By losing your PS2 mouse and keyboard, do you mean it works for a bit then stops working and will not work again until you reboot?

If this is the case, (KVM or not) it could be the power supply. I have seen this a couple times. Replacing the power supply (usually with a beefier one) fixed the problem.

Thanks for replying.

Right after loading the Nvidia 100.14.19 driver and rebooting, I have no PS2 keyboard & mouse functionality (not using the KVM). Plug a USB keyboard / mouse in and the system works fine. I downgraded back to Nvidia 100.14.11 & 100.14.09 drivers and there is no problem. I just can't get the 2 older drivers to work on 4 displays.
