Hp Pavilion Blinking Caps Lock and Num Lock keys

Question: Hp Pavilion Blinking Caps Lock and Num Lock keys

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop that is about 2 years old. I usually keep it in Hibernate mode but last night I shut it down totally and this morning woke up and the Caps lock and Num lock keys are blinking. Any clues as to what the problem is? All led lights on top are lit. Screen does not come up at all. I am going to try the hard reset to see if that is the problem. Any ideas would help.

Answer: Hp Pavilion Blinking Caps Lock and Num Lock keys

Hi, Welcome to TSG forums!
You might try booting it into safe mode....while computer is booting, continously tap the F8 key. This should open it in safe mode. If it does, use the arrow keys to move up to 'last known good configuration' click on enter, let the machine do its thing.

For some time now, i have been experiencing that my Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock all lights up (not blinking) all at the same time, I tried to google it but i can not find any solutions or explanations for it.

Does anyone know if it is bad? and what is causing this?

I am having a wired keyboard with nothing fancy just a standard issue Logitech keyboard.

Answer:Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock all lights up (not blinking)

Can you toggle those functions off, one at a time? Sometimes restarting the computer will use the last state it was in, I'd fully shut down and pull the power cord from the computer and the keyboard cable then put them back and try again.

I'm also seeing this issue . HP Pavilion g6-b50us, 4GB RAM, Windows 7.  On boot, I get a blank screen, amber F12, Caps Lock blinks every 5 seconds. Here are the steps I've tried so far:
 

Hard Reset: I've removed the battery, pressed the power button for 10, 30, 60 seconds, re-inserted the battery and rebooted. Fail, no change : blank screen, amber F12, Caps Lock blinks every 5 seconds.
I've removed the battery *and* the CMOS battery, pressed the power button for 10, 30, 60 seconds, reinstalled the batteries, and rebooted. Fail, no change.
I've swapped out known good RAM for the existing RAM, and have also rebooted with no RAM. Fail, no change.
I've swapped out RAM and tried all the above reset procedures. Fail, no change.
I've connected to an external VGA monitor in all the above scenarios. Fail, no change. VGA monitor appears to never be detected during boot attempts under Auto-detect or Analog connection.

The hard drive sat in a rubberized caddy, which appeared to be heat-fused in its location and was difficult to extract. The hard drive is readable, but does not appear to have suffered any thermal damage.
 
Is there any way to interrogate the BIOS, chipset, video, or components to determine a root cause and whether it's fixable or not?
 
Thanks for your help and suggestions.

My daughter has an HP Pavilion DV6, that I have fixed the symptoms of a problem but would like to get to the bottom of the cause. The problem was that it wouldn't start, when you switch on you can hear the fan, the led on the caps lock bilnks continuously, and the led on the wifi key is orange. (It is normally white when working properly.

Having trawled numerous forums including HP I could not find a resolution, many suggestions such as reset the power, clean the memory and slots etc etc, followed by loads of entries from people trying all of these without succes

I eventually came across a post that said he had fixed it by simply wrapping the laptop in a blanket, switching on, leaving for 20 minutes then switching off and on again. This post was followed by dozens of people saying this worked for them.
So, rather sceptically, I tried it and amazingly it worked. The laptop now starts every time without a problem. So aparantly problem solved.

However I would like to get to the bottom of this before it happens again. I want to find the actual reason for the failure and if necessary replace any faulty componants. I am thinking of selling the laptop but don't want to sell it to someone knowing it may fail in the near future.

My guess is that this must be heat related as wrapping in a blanket stopped the laptop cooling and it was very hot when I removed the blanket.
The laptop now starts OK regardless of the temp, I left it overnight and restarted OK.

Try reseating your RAM securely in their slots.  I have read that blinking of any of the lock indicators is a sign of memory failure.

I went to get my HP dv4 Pavilion laptop after work tonight to check email and i opened it up and moved around the mouse to wake it up...the lights on they keyboard all came on as if it were starting but the screen stayed black. I waited a few minutes because sometimes it's been known to take a few seconds to actually kick on...but nothing happened so I forced shutdown by holding the power button. Turned it back on and the screen came on(with a "your system didn't shut down properly error screen) but it still started, but now the Caps Lock and Scroll keys had blinking lights on the side and top, blinking together about every second. I tried tapping the buttons and nothing happened. What caused this and how can i get rid of the blinking. I've read from doing a google search that shutting down, taking the battery out and unplugging from the A/C adapter and holding the power button for 15 seconds takes care of the problem...but I would like to make sure that is safe before trying as this is a fairly new laptop(just got it at Christmas time). I'm running Windows 7 if that makes a difference. would also like to add that I just noticed that my little batter icon says it is plugged in but not charging....it's sitting at 80%....this is a brand new ac adapter that I just got last week...so I hope it's not that.Thank you for any help you can give me....and sorry if this isn't the right forum....it seemed to be the best fit.

Hello! Since the most recent build of W-10 (9879), my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights do not function on either computer on which I have W-10 installed (a desktop with a USB keyboard and a laptop with an integrated keyboard). The keys still work to correctly toggle the functionality, but the keyboard lights don't work. In case it matters, my keyboard's actual backlights and my mouse's internal light (not the laser, the internal LED) are working correctly, it's just the CL, NL, and SL indicators that don't function.

Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

I've a customized Pavilion G6, and recently caps lock has started blinking, like, it blinks for 2 or 3 minutes, then it goes back to normal. I googled about it and found some guys had problems like their CPU being damaged, their BIOS being corrupted or something about memory buffers... Well, I'm able to use my laptop, no blank screen or whatsoever.So, my questions are, why do I get this blinking from caps lock? Should I be worried? And what can I do to make it back to normal? 

Answer:Caps Lock keeps blinking...

 

Hello, 

 

I see that you're having an issue with the caps light blinking 2 times. This means the memory is going bad. I would suggest reseating the memory. If reseating the memory does not resolve the problem, try replacing the memory with new memory.

 

If you do not feel comfortable reseating the memory yourself, take the computer to a computer retailer and ask them to reseat it for you.

Here is a document showing you how to reseat the memory. 

 

Shown here this is the chart showing you the cause of the blinking.

 



 

You can also follow this document telling you what the cause for every possible issue you have with the caps lock blinking.

I have a HP 15-f162dx with an i3-4030u processor and a "born on" date of May 2015. About half the time on startup it gives me the blinking LED error light. I've read through the guide online but didn't see anything that matched exactly. The wifi button light is lit solid orange, the caps lock blinks steadily at roughly 4 second intervals without any variation in the pattern. If the power cord is plugged in the light there is solid. If the cord is not plugged in, then there isn't a light. I assume the power light and wifi light are irrelevant in this case, but figured I'd mention them anyway. I'm starting to think it's the motherboard, but not sure. Any ideas?

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

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.

Answer:Dell Inspirion 3148 keyboard (left side keys like 1, Q, A, Z, Caps Lock) keys are not functioning)

I'm assuming you have windows 10 on the system.....
I'd suggest you check Sticky keys in control panel. You might have mistakenly turn it on.
At the left bottom of taskbar, right click windows icon, click on Control Panel, Ease Of Access, and then Change How Your Keyboard Works. If there's a check mark in box - Turn on Sticky keys) then uncheck it and click Apply.

Been using my laptop for a year already. Last night I used it to do my presentations but it hanged and so I long pressed it to shut it down. As I tried to turn it on unfortunately it won't. I tried to do some troubleshooting like removing the batt but failed. I have observed that the caps lock button is blinking for twice then pause then blink again twice. Its only the caps lock led is blinking. I tried to charge it but seems quite normal. I notice also some sound inside seems like beeping thing. What would I do?

Relevance 78.01%

I'm having issues with what I think I've narrowed down to my motherboard.  The laptop turns on for about two seconds, then the fan cuts off and the caps lock blinks 3 lights before pausing and doing again in a continuous loop. I've searched and found the lights to be indicative of a memory issue, so I removed and replaced the memory with other memory, taken out the wifi adapter, cleaned the ram slot as well as the wifi adapter slot, and it continues to do this. I've seen reflowing the motherboard as something fixes some people's problems, but I really want to avoid doing that because I'm not comfortable with the idea itself. Is there anything I'm missing?

Answer:hp 2000 2C25DX caps lock blinking 3 times

No I think you have accurately diagnosed the problem. A reflow is not likely to help although there are shops that will repair a motherboard using advanced electronics and equipment to repair chips, not reflow. Reflow is very crude and ultimately ineffective. We can also likely find you a replacement board.

Does it have a legacy hard disk or an SSD disk? The blinking is a diagnostic code. Watch the blinks to determine where it repeats.  What is the complete product name or product number?  Look on the side of the  box it was delivered in.

 I have been using my laptop for a couple of years now and i have never experienced this issue. It all began two days ago, when i started noticing that my laptop would shut down itself suddenly after 2-3hours of use, the problem has extended to even when booting the laptop, the caps lock light blinks continously, while the screen is blank, at intervals of 3seconds for sometime then the computer restarts itself automatically. After blinking for more than a hundred times the laptop boots successfully but then again after a few hours of use it shuts down again suddenly and i have to repeat the same procedure. took it to a shop yesterday and the fan was cleaned, also the area around the processor was heated, i believe it is called 'reflowing'.   They tested my RAM and everything was okay. after getting home with the laptop, i powered it on, and the same issue began, the capslock started blinking, after calling the shop, was told to start the computer wthout the battery being present, i dd this and after a few attempts the laptop booted successfully. i used t and shut it down as i was going to bed. This morning tried booting it and the same caps lock issue occurred. Please can someone assist, this is getting out of hand now. Thanks in advance.

Yesterday the laptop wouldn't start. Starts to power on, caps lock LED blinks repeatedly, then shuts off. I have no doubt this is a POST code, but I can't find any info from dell to determine it's meaning.

After pulling power, battery, etc. and waiting a while, we got it to boot to windows, then got a BSOD with an error message and had to turn it off. Back to the post code.

I connected the drive to my desktop and backed up all the data. Then I stripped the laptop down the system board (no obvious hardware problems detected), then tried to power up with memory and CPU only. Seems to work, tells me no HD found (as expected). I added the HD, and made it to windows startup screen, saw the desktop, then it hit a BSOD.

I tried another reboot, and went into the bios, turned on "thorough POST". On the next power cycle, no POST errors, but I hit F12 to go to Diagnostics. First time through, it hung in a memory test. Not sure that's the culprit, I rebooted and did it again. Made it through the memory test no problem, next step it loads a diagnostics GUI. Started running system board tests through the GUI, and it locked up again.

Next reboot and I'm staring at the blinking caps lock LED again, and can't get it to boot. This is with AC power, and only the keybaord, CPU, HD, and memory installed. Since then, I haven't been able to get it to boot successfully.

This HP Laptop has not been booting properly. After some investigation, I came up across the LED blink/beep problem codes and was hoping to utilize that page. The problem is, on my laptop, the Caps Lock LED light constantly flashes and does not stop, unlike on the problem code page where it says it should stop to give me an idea of what the problem is. Additionally, the LED light on the Wireless key is a solid red color. After multiple attempts, I cannot find anything about an infinite caps lock blinking and a solid red light. I've attempted the hard reset, where I take out the battery and the AC Adapter and hold the power button down for an extended period of time. I've also reseated the RAM sticks. I've also even taken out the CMOS battery and replaced that.  If possible, could it just be a failure system board/motheboard? I've been told that if I take out the RAM and try powering on the device, the device should beep at me since it doesn't recognize any RAM, but in my case, it doesn't beep. Any other ideas?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

PS i have no games on it.

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.

Bye

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.

Hi @micwtx ,  Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have looked into your issue about your Compaq Presario CQ62-209WM Notebook and issues with the flashing lights and not starting correctly. Here is a link to computer does not start. It has the LED blinking codes and suggests that it could be your System Board. Have you tried to reseat the memory and HDD? (it is in the document) Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues. Plug the power adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue.Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Hi,

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.

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 ?

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.
