2 @ w s x keys not working, caps lock dim light on

Question: 2 @ w s x keys not working, caps lock dim light on

Hi,
I'm having problems with my keyboard again. The Caps Lock key (dim) light remains on and the following keys are not working: 2 @ w s x and the one on the right next to Alt. In the meantime I'm using the on-screen keyboard. I had this problem a couple of years ago, I found a solution online but I forgot what the solution is, so i'm sure is not a keyboard itself.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: 2 @ w s x keys not working, caps lock dim light on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: 2 @ w s x keys not working, caps lock dim light on

I think you should try re-seating the keyboard's cable to the motherboard.

You would have to remove the keyboard to do it

Can you recall if that's what you did last time ?

Even when I am typing this message it becomes difficult if my G 570 has the num lock on or off, same thing happens with caps lock. Have to guess all the time and correct the typos.. NONE OF THE  LIGHTS - CAPS LOCK OR NUM LOCK IS WORKING. DURING BOOT UP AND JUST AFTER BOOT UP, THE LIGHTS SEEM TO WORK PERFECTLY, BUT AFTER STARTUP THE LIGHTS BECOME COMPLETELY DEAD! difficult working with guessing business and toggling these always basing on trial and error..  PLEASE HELP!

Answer:CAPS LOCK AND NUM LOCK LIGHT NOT WORKING ON G 570

hi SD_musician,
 
Can you try to:
 
1. Check this registry fix to disable or enable the Num Lock key at startup
2. Referring to this article, try to press Fn+F8 to enable numlock at the Windows login screen then press the power button to shutdown / restart the PC.
3. Check for an updated BIOS from the lenovo website to fix both capslock and numlock issue (press Windows Key+Rt > type msinfo32 then press Enter to know your BIOS version).
 
Note:
Backup your important files and follow this readme instructions before updating the BIOS.
 
 
Let me know your findings.
 
Cheers.

Hello All,
 
       This is not really a request for fix assistance, since I've already fixed the problem, but I wanted to see if someone could explain how the now fixed issue came to be.
 
        I work with individuals who are visually-impaired or blind to teach them how to use their computers with assistive technology such as screen readers and magnifiers (most commonly JAWS and ZoomText but there are others).
 
        One of my current clients has an HP laptop that is hooked to a large-screen TV via HDMI and who's also using an external keyboard and mouse when he's at his desk.  On Friday, there was an accident where several heavy objects were dropped and hit both the external keyboard and mouse, but not the computer.  Subsequent testing shows neither the mouse nor the external keyboard were damaged.  The laptop itself was untouched during this incident.  The client had believed that the keyboard and/or mouse were damaged, and acquired a bluetooth portable keyboard and mouse, but the behavior I'm about to describe for the keyboard occurred on the laptop's built-in keyboard, the external wired keyboard, and the external bluetooth keyboard:

Hello, I am hoping someone could help me with this issue. I am not sure if I am posting in the right section of the forum so forgive me if i am not. I am using a compaq laptop with windows 7 for an OS. The G, H, 8, and backspace keys decided to stop working. For some reason the only way to get any of those buttons to work is if you put on CAPS lock and hold shift. Then you can use those keys. Im not sure if any other keys have been affected as of yet. Ive tried to google for a solution, which normally helps me fix any computer issues I come accross. So far I can only find the reccomendation to hold the function button and press numlock, and its supposed to remove the, "sticky keys." I am not quite sure what exactly the sticky keys are but I didnt think it was the problem here, and the laptop doesnt seem to have a function button anyways. I have seen the option to turn on sticky keys when holding shift on other computers or tapping shift 8 times, I dont know if it was turned on or if sticky keys cause certain keys to not work unless you hold shift while CAPS lock is on, but if this sounds like something you can help with please advise me of any suggestions. I appreciate any time you take to help or even if youve read this far. Thank you
 

Answer:Certain keyboard keys not working unless you press caps lock and hold shift?

First thing you do is get a canned air and clean out the keyboard... slowly, carefully, then do it again with the laptop upside down. That rules out the most common cause... dirt, dust, and debris.

Question: No Caps Lock light

Hi. I've just had 16 automatic updates installed mostly for Vista security and now the Caps Lock light will not come on when Caps Lock key is pressed. Hopeless!
Any ideas please?

Thanks,

Phil.

Answer:No Caps Lock light

Do you know when this problem began? Try a System Restore to a point in time BEFORE the problem began. Here's the procedure: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/76905-system-restore-how.html. Be sure to check the box to show more than 5 days of restore points. If the first attempt fails, then try an earlier point or two. NOTE: You will have to re-install any software and updates you installed between now and the restore point (yes, I know, all 16 and perhaps others now as well), but you can use Windows Update for the updates. It will notice they are missing and re-install them.

The problem is that one of them may have caused the light problem. It may be best to write down the updates it wants to install (with the KB numbers) and do each individually and then reboot and make sure the light still works before moving on to the next until you find the one causing the problem. Then uninstall that one and just install all the rest but that one. Post back with KB number and name of that update and we'll look into the problem.

Or you can live without a CAPS LOCK light. As a partial workaround, Go to Start / Control Panel / Ease of Access Center / Make the keyboard easier to use and check the box for Toggle Keys. Now whenever you hit Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock, they system will make a sound. As you probably almost never use Scroll Lock or Num Lock, it will basically apply for Caps Lock. Thus though you may not see the light come on, you will at least hear a sound indicating ... Read more

Hello.

The caps lock light on my HP Pavilion G6-2356sa is flashing. The button still puts the letters in capitals, so it still works, just continually flashing. It's just stopped flashing actually.

Anyway, I've had a Google and all the results I've found say it has a black screen at the same time. Mine doesn't have a black screen, though it did a few months ago, made a thread here.

I'm not sure this is a good sign.

Thanks in advance for help.

Usually a bad sign depending on the number of flashes you receive:

Strangely enough, since updating to 9879, the caps lock light on my keyboard does not work.

I know it may seem small but it is really annoying not knowing when caps is on or not. My keyboard is backlit and the keys light up fine but the light on the capslock key does not.

I'm dualing booting with Windows 8.1 and if I switch back to 8.1, the caps lock button light works fine, so I know the light it self is not the problem.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Yesterday I woke it up from sleep and the keyboard lit up and the caps lock light would blink twice every few seconds. I held the power button down and rebooted it and when it started up the fans were running and the light was still blinking. I tried a hard reset and everything and several hours later it started again randomly...A short while later it happened again and this time I was unable to fix the problem. I have already read that it a Bios corruption but I don't know what that means. Can anyone help? Thanks. I have already tried doing a hard reset, taking the battery and the plug out, pressing the windows key and b while turning it on. Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

"Is this likely a hardware problem? How do I tell? If it's a hardware problem, how do I fix?""Is this likely a software problem? How do I tell? If it's a software problem, how do I fix?"It's more than likely hardware related. Do you get CAPS when it's toggled (try it a couple times to be sure). If so, then likely the LED has simply expired. If not, then the key itself (or possibly cable) is probably defective. May or may not be an easy fix depending on your experience with the inside of a laptop."Channeling the spirit of jboy..."

Hi

You have suggested that this light doesn?t works since motherboard replacement.
Am I right? In my opinion it's a mechanically issue. Cannot solve it yourself.
In this case I would recommend contacting the ASP again and explain him the situation. Usually the warranty should cover the reparation procedure.

A little earlier today our caps lock keys seemed to be reversed. When I pressed Caps Lock, I got lower case. When it was unactivated, I got all upper case. Now it is not doing that anymore. What could have caused it? How do I fix it if it happens again? My son and husband play computer games a lot that require hitting lots of keys. Could that have done it?

Also, I don't know if it is related, but when I was checking my e-mail, instead of replacing the window already open, when I clicked on mail it opened a new window. A new window was opened for every e-mail I opened also.

Thanks so much. You guys are great.

Answer:Caps Lock Keys Reversed

My son and husband play computer games a lot that require hitting lots of keys. Could that have done it?Possibly. Plokta (pressing a lot of keys to abort) can cause all sorts of strange things. Check to see if sticky keys are or have been enabled.

Answer:Satellite Pro A40 Caps Lock on and off with many keys

Hi

Well, it?s not easy to say why this malfunction occurs.
You can try to use the ?System Restore? tool. This can help to set the OS to the early point.

Furthermore if it doesn?t help, I would recommend to recover the OS with the delivered Recovery CD. (Please make a backup of your files.) If the problem still the same after this procedure so I think it?s a hardware malfunction and you should contact the service agents for scrutiny.

Sometimes electrical components needs to have all power sources removed and reintroduced to work properly.  Try performing a hard reset first, if it doesn't work then try updating your BIOS.  If neither works...It's pretty much dead and not worth fixing.  To Perform A Hard Reset Shut down the computer by going to the Start menu and selecting shut down. (If you have no display, hold the power button down for  5 seconds)Disconnect the AC Adapter from the notebook.Remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook.  There will be a switch/button to eject the battery.Wait at least 1 minute with all power sources disconnected.Re-insert the battery and reconnect the AC Adapter and then attempt to power on the notebook.

This started from me closing my on screen keyboard with caps lock activated.

 

On march 27, most of my keys(b, n, caps lock, delete, 7(numpad), f1, f8, f12, \, =) have stopped working all at the same time without me doing anything that day. 

 

Yesterday is when my caps lock started to out act of control. just from me closing the on screen keyboard, I accidentally clicked caps lock and closed it. 

 

Since it doesn't work, it still flashes on and off. I used malwarebytes and did all 3 scans but nothing was found.

 

I disabled the key two times, with keytweaker and manual. If I were to hold down on any key like backspace or a letter, it won't spam across the thread or anywhere I type on. This would mean that caps lock is affecting my keys
even when disabled.

 

It won't capitalize everything which is what I want but it still activates and stops my keys from working.

I bought this notebook at the end of may 2016 but didn't really start using it till August. A couple days ago my shift keys and caps lock keys started acting funny. When you press the left shift key something like ZXCM> come up. The caps lock is permanately on. In order to type things not in caps, you have to turn on the caps lock key so the light is on (caps is backwards). When you push the right shift key something like QEUORY something comes up and then everything gets highlighted on the screen and if a window is open you are not able to close it. I have antivirus and there is no virus present. I have done a factory reset to see if it was a possible software issue and still the problem persists.

I guess it might possibly be a BIOS corruption issue if the Windows restore did not fix it, you might try: Updating the BIOS firmware.Hold the Windows Logo key and B button down when powering up.Let the battery run completely down to reset the BIOS.

Hi, First, with reference to the Service Manual on the link below - remove and re-seat your memory module(s). If the above makes no difference try the following. Again, with reference to the Manual on the link below, remove one of your memory modules and then see if the notebook will boot.  If it doesn't, try the same module, but in the other slot.  If is still doesn't boot, try the other memory module in both slots, to see if any combination will allow the notebook to start normally. The procedure for removing these modules is detailed starting on Page 63 of your Maintenance & Service Guide. Regards, DP-K

Thinkpad T61 caps lock not glowing, but its functioning well. Only light doesnt glow. Any suggestions. Is it a drivers issue or any settings in BIOS. Please suggest. Thanks,

Answer:Thinkpad T61 caps lock not glowing, but its functioning well. Only light doesnt glow.

Most likely the CapsLock LED is defective. If so this won't be an easy or inexpensive repair. 
 
Probably the most expedient solution would be to install an on-screen CapsLock indicator utility, e.g. Hotkey Features Integration for ThinkPad or  CapsLock v4.2.0 ("A utility program that gives an on-screen display and optional audible indication of the keyboard CapsLock key state.")

When Caps Lock is on and I am typing into a Word document, I get the sense that keyboard keys are harder to press. Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Does this happen to you? When Caps Lock is on, my keyboard keys are harder to pre

Hi Thai,

There is nothing in standard computer keyboards that could cause the keys to be harder to press when Caps Lock is on. Of course a standard typewriter could do such a thing but I assume you are talking about a computer keyboard.

The Num lock and Caps lock are lit.

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

Answer:Satellite C660 - keyboard is not working but Num lock and Caps lock are lit

Hi

Are you able to disable the CapsLock and NumLock?
Can you access the BIOS pressing F2 while powering up the unit?

If this does not work, I would recommend checking an external USB keyboard.
If the USB keyboard would functions, then this means that the internal keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced.

The keyboard is plugged in ok, i have no viruses and have not installed anything new. The light for caps lock on the keyboard does not come on, the button does not work at all, although holding down standard shift to create capitals poses no problem. Bizarre! Ill guess its a simple case of using my windows cd to look for missing components/software/related drivers, but i wish i knew what could be a likely cause, to prevent it happening again? The lights on the keyboard for scroll lock and num lock work, and function.

Hi all,

My CAPS LOCK key is not working on my Satelite P50-A-14E series laptop. Just realized while writing an email that is not working so is more or less sudden. Nothing has been spilled on it. Here is what I've checked so far:

- green light indicating that CAPS is LOCKED illuminates while pressing the key from on screen keyboard
- keyboard backlight doesn't start when I press the key but It works for the key itself when pressing any other key.
- tried a clean boot but no result.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Answer:Satelite P50-A-14E - Caps lock key is not working

Hi

> Just realized while writing an email that is not working so is more or less sudden.

Did you test the CAPS LOCK button using different software: internet browser, word or another editor?
How about the usage of external keyboard?


From my point of view there are two possible malfunctions: either there is some problem with the software you are using or the internal keyboard simply malfunctions and in such case the keyboard replacement will solve the problem.

You could test the external USB keyboard. In case the USB external keyboard CAPS LOCK button would functions, then the internal keyboard has to be replaced for sure.

I don't know how to resolve your problem, but as a non touch typist, a free piece of software called Boldfinger has been invaluable to me. It disables the Caps Lock key, so you can't accidentally press it - and then look up at the screen and find your last five minutes of typing is in upper case... :-( You have to do something like Ctrl+Caps Lock or Alt+Caps Lock if you really want Caps Lock on.

I have a Ideapad Y560P that shut down suddenly and when we tried to turn it back on, the Caps Lock and Num Lock (on F8 key) lights go on but the computer does not start. I saw a similar thread from 2010 but there was no resolution. I assume that the two lights on at the same time at attempted start indicate some kind of "fault" condition in the computer. I have not been able to get the bios to start so that I could run diagnostics. I pulled the battery and held down power for 30 seconds, pressed start twice, put the battery back in but still won't start. I pulled memory out, trying to get a POST "beep" error but that didn't occur. I put memory back in one dimm at a time. I pulled the Hard Drive out and put it in an external enclosure and was able to extract the information to another laptop so I'm pretty sure I didn't have a hardware Hard Drive failure. Other than the one reference in this forum I haven't seen any information about this kind of, what I assume is a, hardware failure. I assume that Lenovo has some kind of guide that tells them what the lights mean. The computer was about six months out of warrenty when it failed.
