Preferred Solution: My Tab, Caps Lock & Windows Key doesnt work!

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: My Tab, Caps Lock & Windows Key doesnt work!

Check the settings of your keyboard. The Roccat is designed to disable those keys. You have them set to be ignored.

my caps lock button, alt button, fn button and windows button do not work. I have an Hp pavilion m7 1015dx computer running windows 7. I have wanted to uninstall and reinstall the keyboard drive but but am worried that once i uninstall it the driver, my computer wont reinstall it.

Answer:caps lock, alt, fn, and windows key do not work

Hi welcome to the forum

does the onscreen keyboard work for those keys? you can uninstall the keyboard driver from device manager and restart laptop. it will load the driver when windows load. but sounds like the keyboard is faulty. hook an external keyboard to it and see if that one works.

I often hit caps lock by mistake, and then end up with loads of caps.I have tried going into Control panel >accessibility option >keyboard tab >select use toggle keysbut it still doesnt beep when I hit caps lock.Any ideas why not?

Answer:Why doesnt caps lock beep when supposed to?

Has it ever beeped? It may be that you don't have an internal speaker in your PC.I've disabled the Caps Lock key using Microsoft Intellitype (even though I don't have a MS keyboard)click hereIt worked for me by selecting the MultiMedia Keyboard and then choosing the option to disable. It may not work for every one

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.")

As stated above, I have a Dell Inspiron 1501, I tried to power up last night, and it froze that the BIOS loading screen. I left it alone to see if anything would happen, 15 minutes later i held down the power button, and it didn't shut down like it's supposed to, i held it down for more than 10-13 seconds. I tried to start it up, I heard the fan start up as it usually does, but nothing comes up on the Display and the Caps Lock LED flashes continuously. I began searching online for possible problems, did some troubleshooting because i refuse to call Dell(Always get problems), and came up with it being a possible RAM problem. I unscrewed the back, and removed both sticks, and tried starting up with each stick in a different slot, then with just one stick on each slot. no luck. Then i tried to see if i could get the two LEDs to show up for the POST, by removing both sticks, and now the caps lock doesnt even flash, nor does anything come up on the screen.
Please Help.
 

Answer:Caps Lock Flashes Dell Inspiron 1501 Doesnt Boot

Did it give you any beeps when both sticks of memory where out following your turning it on?

If it doesn't beep while having no memory then it is likely that your motherboard needs to be replaced.

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?

Answer:Z580 - Anyway to make the caps-lock led work as an hdd led?

HiI am not sure if it is possible but i can surely advice you on this.I think you will need to bypass some keyboard drivers and sata drivers so that you can somehow link the caps locks led to the hdd to make it blink everytime the hdd is being acessed. Just one thing more that you will also require some bios editions also. You might require a modded bios image which has the option required by you. Just to make note that doing something with bios and all might brick your system and void your warranty also.Regards

I recently bought a Lenovo Y50-70 and I use Caps lock for gaming but the black and yellow icon notification for caps lock is very annoying. I have Windows 8.1 and I'm looking to looking to turn this option off. I have researched ways to end this but have tried going into regedit, Display, Ease of Access and msconfig to no avail. There is no Widcomm file in my registry, Display's advanced settings do not have an option and neither does Ease of Access. I know that I can turn off all on screen notifications and therefore solve this problem but I don't want to do that. If anyone has an answer, much will be appreciated.

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.

Windows XP sp2:

when caps lock is toggled off, curser types all caps. When toggled on, types small case.!

the numbers above the letters will not type numbers, only the symbols that should type when you select the shift key in either toggle mode. The number pad to the right will not work at all. i can type no numbers at all.!

When selecting a program via double clicking icon from the desktop, the left (primary) mouse button acts as a select all. Windows then prompts that it will take too long to open all of the applications selected. (because whatever is doing this highlights everything above and to the left of the mouse location.

This select-all problem also exists inside other softwear such as Word. and also in all fields in web browser where any data is entered by the keyboard.

i have run Spybot, AVG antispy and anti virus. results deleted successfully but problem still exists.

I can't use my computer like this.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Single. Time. which is getting fairly annoying, given it's a social game and I learned to type with caps lock and not the shift keys. I've had a look under regedit and KeyIndicator is set to 0. Running Windows 7. Any help would be massively appreciated.

Answer:G780 Windows 7 and caps lock indicator

hi lepsylentil,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you check under Control Panel ,    Add / Remove Programs and see if you have anything that says Caps OSD or OSD.
If yes, Uninstall that.
 
You can also try uninstalling Lenovo Energy Management from Add remove programs.
 
See if those will take out the Onscreen Capslock Display.

Hello, A few days ago, while using my computer, the Caps and Number Lock button came on and wouldn't go off. This happens while typing and suddenly it types ASDFJKL; and won't let me type anymore. I can still switch between screens but can't type anything and can't turn the Caps lock and Number lock buttons off. I end up having to restart my computer. This has happened maybe 5 times in the last few days. Please help if you can! Thanks!

 Could be a short circut on ribbon cable that connects the Keyboard to the main motherboard and the case.   The hardware maintenance manual for our laptop is linked below, and has instructions on how to remove your keyboard if you feel savy enough to remove it yourself.     You might also check to make sure Stickey Keys is not turned on... I have seen it cause strange things before, so it is worth a check.   Stickey Keys can be turned off and on from the Windows Control Panel named Ease of Access Center, under the section Make the Keyboard Easier to use, or by following the instructions in the video below.  How to turn off Sticky Keys in Windows 8.1https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmSgIDuZBFw Lenovo G50-30/G50-45/ G50-70/G50-70m/Z50-70/ Z50-75/G50-80 Hardware Maintenance Manualhttps://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g_z_50_series_hmm.pdf   Good Luck

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 company has confirmed another bug in Windows 10

Since it's still in preview stage, Windows 10 comes with plenty of bugs, some of which are really awkward and make people wonder how come that Microsoft didn't fix them before pushing the new OS to users.

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.

Good afternoon,

I just did a clean install of 7 to fix errors with my laptop, and it fixed one, but not the other main issues,
My caps lock, and number lock button on the keyboard don't have a light on it and the pop up that is supposed to pop up doesn't show up on screen.
I figured by doing a clean install it would all magically appear again... I was wrong, I have tweaked everything I could think of looking/trying to change setting from the keyboard in control panel, (including messing around with ease of use) and Gateways so called "support" area was of no help, as well as googling the issue has led me down a path of useless tips, I have also looked on this forum for help.

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 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.

Greetings!  I recently purchased a replacement motherboard and installed it on my f023wm.  Windows loads up and boots with no issues and the quick tests in diagnostics all come back as passing.  The thing is, the caps lock button is actually behaving as if it were the HDD LED... blinking erratically and in no distinguishable pattern at all.  I've counted anywhere between 7 to 20 blinks in rapid-fire succession.   I am currently running the System Extensive Tests in diagnostic mode and thus far the Processor Check, the Hard Drive SMART Check, the Hard Drive Short DST Check, the Battery Check, the Wireless Module Check, and the System Board have passed all tests with no errors to report.  The Memory Extensive Check and the Hard Drive Long DST Check tests are still in progress but I will follow up with those results as soon as they are available (estimated 2 hours and 20 minutes remaining).   I should also point out that when the caps lock button blinks, the system stutters as if it were lagging and pressing the caps lock button does nothing to stop the blinking. Does anyone have any idea as to what is going on?  Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am stumped when it comes to this behavior.  Thanks for taking the time to read and I look forward to any help regarding the matter!

I have just done a fresh install of Windows 8.1 on a Lenovo Yoga 2 11.

Ran a Bios update, and numerous Lenovo driver software updates and to no avail the Caps Lock and Windows button do not work. They work perfectly on the on-screen keyboard but not on the QWERTY. Wireless Keyboards work fine so there is a fundamental issue with the built-in QWERTY keyboard.

I've exhausted many fixes including registry edits but am at a lose now. Lenovo is offering little to no help other than to return to base for repair which will no doubt cost, when l would like to fix the issue myself.

Any suggestions?

Hello! Recently, I turned on the on screen indicators for caps and num lock by accident when trying to get the pop-up window to stop opening every time I hit one of the buttons. Now I don't know how to disable it, and it's a pain while playing games. Solutions tried:Going to preference, there is no "On-Screen Display Tab"Going to run the regedit. Any help would be appreciated!

hi Vilvern,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
AFAIK,
  If the system does not have CAPS OSD under Control Panel / Uninstall a Program to uninstall
You will need to Uninstall the Lenovo Energy managemenr Under the Programs / Uninstall a program.

I need help. I will explain when I believe the problem began. I Had windows xp running with 3 harddrives and a Cdrom drive. My CdRom drive began to give me problems, so I was going to swap it with one from one of my other computers. At the same time I wanted to change the way I had all my drives connected. I had originally had the 80 gig drive as a Primary Master, with a smaller drive acting as the Slave. I also had the Cdrom as Master Secondary drive and a smaller drive attached as the Slave. Now everthing was running fine, exept that my cdrom drive would read the discs only if it would start up with the disk in the drive. If I tried to change it, windows would ask me to place a disk in the F: drive, when there already was one. I thought to replace the CdRom drive with another working device. while at the same time I decided to change up my Connections. I took the "new" cd rom drive and made it Slave Primary to the Master 80 Gig drive. then I took the two smaller drives and put them together as sencondary devices. when I tried to turn on the computer all that happens is, as soon as I touch the power my 3 lights on my keyboard come on. Num Lock Caps Lock and Scroll Lock. I know the drive is turning on because I can feel & here it wirr. I tried taking everything off except for the 80 gig drive and I still got the same problem. Later on I noticed that there are a bunch of smaller connections that come from the front of my computer power, sleep, and reset buttons. ... Read more

Good Day  Please can you help me. I have an ideapd z580 and recently noticed that I'm unable to determine whether my num lock or caps lock is on.

I also tried to go on to advanced settings (under screen resolution) and I noticed that I don't have the "on-screen display tab". What can i do?

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.
