Solved: Caps lock not working in Windows 7

Question: Solved: Caps lock not working in Windows 7

I have been using Windows 7 for a few months now, and suddenly my Logitech keyboard Caps lock is not responding. I can get a capital letter in, say, Word, etc., by simply holding down the shift key, but cannot type words in capitals, other than by doing the same thing. Previously I simply pressed the Caps lock key, but recently that has had no effect. The Number lock key works perfectly, so has anyone any ideas please? Thanks.

I'm using an HP Pavilion dv6000 Notebook series. I noticed that my Caps Lock LED is not working but its FUNCTION is working fine.. same goes with Scroll Lock. Here's the weird part.. when I press Num Lock ( function key + scroll lock ) the LED turns on! I already tried a system recovery, it didn't solve the issue. Is there something wrong with my BIOS? Any help from you guys will be highly appreciated.. thanks!

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.

I have a Satellite C660 which was working fine this morning. When I returned from work and powered it on, the entire keyboard is not working and therefore cannot enter my login details.
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.

Well, I have no idea what caused this but the tablet buttons (even the on/off button) the lights for caps lock and scroll lock as well as the automatic screen orientation change when I flip it to be a tablet have stopped working.Also the screen does not turn off anymore when the lid is closed. Reinstalled pretty much all of the drivers, no effect.Any ideas? Is this thing already broken?

Answer:X41 tablet buttons + scroll lock and caps lock lights + screen orientation change stopped working!

well, SOMETHING is broken.. though it would seen unlikely it is hardware.. a question: did you load anything new just before this happened..?anything at all..scanner drivers or printer drivers or a new application..? OH!, welcome to the lenovo community..!

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.

I have an x61t that when it locks for screen saver password and you have to CTRL ALT Delete the relog back on. the CAPS lock on the onscreen keyboard indicates on but it's not. 1. Log into the tablet.2. The screensaver would lock the tablet.3. Press Ctrl Alt Delete to get to the logon screen.4. The on screen keyboard would show the Caps Lock key as on but it wasn't. If they pressed the Caps Lock key it would then be on.5. The users don't press the Caps Lock key now, even though it is being displayed as on, and they can logon OK. I cannot recreate this problem on another X61tablet and this behaviour happens even when the notebook is in a docking station with an external keyboard.  anybody seen this error before?

Not a techie.  Can't get straight answer ANYWHERE.  New laptops tend to NOT have indicators on the keys.  Hoping Windows 10 has indicators that can be turned on and PROBABLY would show up in the tray at the bottom right of the screen. 
I have heard of sites where such things can be downloaded but again NOT a techie, so I hesitate to go outside of Windows/Microsoft for downloads.  I do not know what download sites are safe or spoofs.

Please plain English ... i.e. go to settings etc.  Or just give me a Microsoft approved site for download.

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.

Answer:caps lock no longer working!

"..but i wish i knew what could be a likely cause"A faulty keyboard is the most likely cause. Try turning it upside down, banging it's bottom, and get all the crumbs out ;-))

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.

How do I remove the Caps and Num Lock indictor for a Lenovo G50, that is running Windows 10?

Answer:Remove Caps lock/Num lock indicator? (Windows 10)

Hi Thisismyname01 ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
On a similar G50 , this was resolved by uninstalling Energy Management .
 
Another steps that was advised :
 
1. Opening Control Panel >Program and Features>Uninstall a Program and look for Caps OSD or Lenovo OSD 
 
2. On the display properties of the graphic card , you may also configure to "Show indicator for a few seconds" . 
 
3. Disable hotkeys from the BIOS ( but this may change all other usable hotkeys ) . Lets's reserve it a last option. 
 
Update us what works for you.

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
 

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 ?

box next to toggle keys to indicate caps lock on is ticked and still not working???

Answer:Caps lock indicator sound not working

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.

Mute, Volume, Screen Brightness indicators are working as per usual, only CL indicator is not working anymore. Tried upgrading Lenovo Hotkey Features, rebooted but still no go. Also, I can't remember where do I find settings for Caps Lock indicator? IIRC, it should be somewhere in Control Panel/Display/Settings/Advanced/OSD, but it disappeared. I can only enable/disable OSD, adjust fade-out time and background/foreground color(s). Options for Caps Lock indicator are missing. Anyone experiencing similar problems?

Hello!

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.

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.

Other keyboard symptoms: the period and the comma were not available, only able to type > or < with or without the Shift key. Also, the Shift key didn't work with most keys for characters. There were also issues in selecting text in a field.

Another nuisance during this period is that when I clicked on a link, it would open up a new browser window, as opposed to the link opening in the same window.

Frustrated, I restarted the computer. I made sure no keys were stuck. When I rebooted, it appeared I was still experiencing these weird symptoms. I had double clicked on an icon on my desktop, it had selected more than one icon and opened the first one to the right.

I'm actually posting this because I solved the problem and want to put the solution out there for other people.

my 8.1 acer aspire has no caps lock light. Some keyboards will let you set a caps lock notification if you go into the control panel and click on "keyboard", then "keyboard settings." But there is no option on my keyboard settings to toggle a caps lock notification. If you go into the control panel, click on "ease of access center" then click on "make the keyboard easier to use", you also have the option of clicking a box which will play a tone when the caps lock is on, but my speakers are never on. There's also regedit option which you can find by googling, but 8.1 makes everything such a hassle that I couldn't summon the energy to go the registry.

There is a program called "Caps-Lock Notifier" that will set up a visual display in the system tray, but it's at minimum adware and at worst malware. Chrome won't download it.

But I found another free and simple program that will do the job without ad- or nag-ware. It's called "Tray Status" and it's by binary fortress. You can find it on their website: http://www.binaryfortress.com/traystatus/

Answer:[SOLVED] caps lock reversed, etc.

Hi JodyO and welcome to TSF !

Have you tried pressing the caps lock key again or pressing the shift key to deactive the caps lock ?

It could also be the shift key that's stuck, try to repress it several times.

Go to control panel => accessibility options and check that the sticky keys are not enabled.

Lastly, try to reboot the computer, and unplug/replug the keyboard.

I have about had it with the caps lock key. Does anyone know of any registry tweak to disable it? I don't want to install any software to disable it. I would live with it rather than install software. Hopefully there are registry mods that can disable it.
BTW, the reason I don't want to try any software is because of the recent problems reported with some home written software setup to cause problems with your keyboard if not registered. I have always been leary of homegrown stuff and the recent problems have justified my concerns.

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.

Hi,

how to disable Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages?



I have desktop pc with two keyboards usb and bluetooth. Also TOSHIBA Bluetooth Stack software, but in device manager: keyboard > hid keyboard device both using microsoft drivers. And I dont have any software installed for keyboards. Also bluetooth has separate system tray indications (it is also disabled) so its not that. I made some googling and found other fix it with Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Widcomm\BTConfig\General KeyIndication set to 0, but I dont have it in registry. Acualy I dont have anywhere in registry KeyIndication. So any ideas how to disable it? Thanks

Answer:Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages

Hi,

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.

When my wife tries to log in to her computer, it gives her a message stating that her caps lock key is on, but she can't turn it off...I'm nowhere near the laptop so I'm relaying this info second hand. There is a triangle with an exclamation mark and it says "Caps lock is on." She says when she clicks the message, it tells her to access the on-screen keyboard, but using the mouse to turn of caps lock there doesn't work either.

She also just informed me that the caps lock key is on for everything...firefox, word, notepad etc, so I assume it's a keyboard issue, not a log in issue. When she presses shift, it goes to lower case. I had her go to control panel, region and language, keyboards and languages, hit the change languages button to open text services, opened the advanced key settings, and the "press the CAPS LOCK key" choice was in fact selected, so I don't know what to try next. Maybe to enter safe mode to see if the problem exists there too? But I don't know how to get into safe mode on her computer, and neither does she, apparently. F2 seems to be the bios from her description and F12 seems to be the boot menu, but no safe mode selections...only drive choices. Her laptop is an Acer Aspire 5534...that's all I know...for now.

Edit: She entered into safe mode and the caps lock is still on. Keyboard issue?

I'm a sloppy typist. I don't know if I hit some key combo or what but I was typing a letter in word pad and suddenly my typing is in all caps. I have used a reg file to disable my caps lock key on this laptop because it gets in my way - a long time ago. I know it cannot be the caps lock key. I do not have a shift key sticking.

I saved the letter, then copied it to Polyedit another word processor, and it still types in all caps. Firefox does not seem to be effected. I even tried rebooting and nothing helped.

Clues?

Hello everybody! I can't get rid of the Lenovo icon of num/scroll/caps lock whic appears when you press one of these keys. The problem shows up when I join to my other bigger monitor so the screen resolution gets bigger and the icon gets stucked in the bottom-right corner where was originally the end of previous smaller resolution (as you can see here on the screenshot): I'm desperate because I've already tried most of the tips which I could find on google. Like modifying the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Widcomm\BTConfig\General\KeyIndication, disabling BTTray.exe etc. I have Lenovo Ideapad B560. I would rly appreciate any suggestions. Thank you! Edit: Problem solved. It wasn't any Lenovo utility but Genius Keyboard. So I have just unistalled the ioCenter software and icon finally disappeared.

I believe it was after a recent Windows 7 update that I started having this issue: when I hit caps lock (often happens when hitting the A key) it closes whatever program window is open at the time. I was advised to use a key remapping utility, and so I used one to remap the key to something nondestructive, like a CTL or SHIFT key (keys which only work in combinations). This solves the problem for a short time, but after a short while (I think, after a restart) the problem reoccurs. I need a permanent solution to this. I also don't understand why it's happening in the first place, and would love to understand if it's a bug that came along with the most recent Windows update.

Answer:Caps Lock closes windows

Hello Unseen and welcome to Seven Forums.

Uninstall your most recent updates. See if problem is corrected. If yes, reinstall updates one at a time. Updates are classified as Critical/Important, Recommended, and Optional. I'd reinstall them in that order rebooting after each update is installed. Yes, it's a slow process but if an update caused the problem you'll know exactly which update it is.

If uninstalling most recent updates does NOT correct the problem, try System Restore to return your computer to a date/time prior to when the problem began.

Please post back if any of this helped or not.

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?

When I hit Caps Lock in Windows 7 an alert (picture of a padlock in grey) icon appears indicating I have turned it on or off. While the alert is showing no input from the keyboard is accepted. This is frustrating because I usually hit Caps Lock and type immediately, and then find about 6 letters have not been accepted. The speed of the system (laptop) is otherwise OK. Is there a way to reduce the time the alert shows, or turn it off altogether?

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. I called Lenovo to attempt to extend the warranty but they won't once it is out of warranty. Looking for some idea of what failed, whether it is worth getting one of Lenovo's listed companies that repair laptops to look at it and fix the problem.

This post is regarding the indicators that pop up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen when caps lock or num lock are turned on and off. Every other person I've found with this problem has been advised to go to Screen Resolution --> Advanced Settings --> Enable onscreen display. However, when I try to do this, I don't have a tab for enabling onscreen display, or a button, or any such thing. (For ease, here's a screenshot: http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu272/Lentilshine/G780indicatorproblem_zps735b5936.png) I didn't hugely mind the indicator, only it's started causing one of the games I run to tab out Every.

I've had a look under regedit and KeyIndicator is set to 0. Running Windows 7. Any help would be massively appreciated.

The best example comes from the keyboard of Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9879 users, as the lights for the Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock keys no longer work after deploying the latest release of the OS.

In a short tweet posted this morning, Gabriel Aul, who keeps us posted on Windows 10 news, says that Microsoft is working to repair this problem and a fix will be included in the next update.

I've installed ver5 of the thinkvantage software update but it doesn't show any driveres to install (other than the finger print scaniner) I've tried installing the HotKeys software but it gave me a warning about compatability, I went ahead and installed it but it doesn't seem to have done much, I can't figure out how to open it up (if it needs configuration or anything) still getting used to windows 8 so maybe i'm missing something. Any suggestions gratefully recieved,Many thanks,Graeme.

Answer:No Caps lock indicator (x121e) after installing windows 8

I also have this problem on x220 and additionally, none of the fn hotkeys seem to work. I have not tried installing the Windows 7 hotkeys utility. Based on the above message, I assume it won't work. Has anyone got the hotkeys and caps lock / num lock display indicator working in Windows 8?

It happens in all the programs that I use, even when I'm renaming a file. For example, when I'm typing this post, or on Microsoft Word, or Notepad, and when I press on the Caps Lock button sometimes to change between capital letters and lower case, the "focus" (or whatever the technical term is), switches away from that particular window and I have to click on the particular window again to continue typing. There is no other window that appears when the "focus" switches. Any help is appreciated! Thank You!

Answer:Windows snaps away sometimes when I press on the Caps Lock button

This sometimes happens to me when I accidentally hit the (A) and (Shift) key at the same time. Of course I was intending to hit the Cap key.

Since going to Windows 10 my caps lock notification does not appear. I found this feature very useful and would like it back

Answer:How can I safely get the caps lock notification back on after going to Windows 10?

You mean an on-screen notification? It's possibly due to a driver change, or incompatible program...but you don't give much info?

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.

Hi. I recently bought a new R5-417T laptop, and in the process of personalisation found no intuitive way to disable the caps-lock or num-lock notifications. (Windows 10 btw)  ^Notification in question^ How would I go about disabling this? I've tried looking in the BIOS, in regedit and some mythical "Launch Manager" program bundled with older acer laptops that I can't find a working version for.

Hi, i've been reading through an endless amount of forum threads to figure out how to remove this caps lock indicator and have not been able to fix my problem. It seems every solution in the control panel does not fit, and no matter how much i look in Registry Editor I can't find the right folders. I don't have the Widcomm folders.  This is what I have tried. 1. unchecking any caps lock indication in the control panel.2. Looking through Registry Editor to delete/rename/alter files.3. Deleting and re-installing Lenovo Energy Manager. How is this problem fixed for me?  I am running windows 10, and a rather new Lenovo Y50 laptop

   Hi,I have an inspiron 9400 that has been having some issues lately.  As of right now, when I push the power button, the power light comes on but it does not boot or even post.  The Num lock stays on and the caps lock and scroll lock lights blink for about 40 seconds then the whole thing shuts off.  This can obviously be only a few things but, how to I figure out what those blinking lights mean.  I have search dell support but have found nothing.  Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks 

Answer:blinking Caps lock and Scroll lock/ no boot up

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.
