Answer: X1 Carbon 2 - turn off holding down shift to activate Caps Lock

Mine doesn't do that. It only activates CAPS LOCK if I press it twice fast. Holding it down does not do it.

Recently I bought a new mechanical keyboard to replace my old one. Everything was working fine but one day I bumped the CAPS lock and couldn't turn it off. After playing around I found that it toggled off when shift was pressed. So naturally I contacted the manufacturer's support and they gladly tried to help. after uninstalling the drivers and configuring software (it's a programmable keyboard) nothing worked. When plugged into another computer the CAPS lock worked fine, and when at the user log in screen on start up (before logging in) it works fine. Skipping ahead, today I plugged in my old keyboard and found the problem was also affecting this one as well. I assume it's something other than driver problems now. Does anyone know what the cause of this problem could be and how to fix it?

Answer:CAPS Lock Stays On Unless Shift is Pressed

According to Keyboard shortcuts for Windows, pressing the Win logo + s should toggle the caps lock on and off; you might try that. You can also open the "on-screen keyboard" and try to toggle the caps lock that way. Maybe one of those will get it out of the state that it is in.... although I've never seen such a state hang around after a reboot.

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 brought the laptop back to Sam's and they told me I have to contact the manufacturer. I have not dropped it or spilled anything on it. This whole situation is really bizarre. I am very frustrated. Please help.

I have a seemingly simple question that I hope someone can help me with. On my new Thinkpad X1 Carbon, I know by using Lenovo?s Adaptive Keyboard software you can reassign the Home and End keys to be Caps Lock. However I want to know after I reassign them to be the Cap Lock key, where do I find my Home and End keys? Is there a special combination of keys for Home and End? My intuition tells me there has to be, otherwise it?ll be just stupid. But I can't seem to find out the answer. Thanks.

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.

This is always the case when I log on freshly.  pressing Shift two times to enable Caps Lock (screen indicator comes on, ALL CAPS NOW) and pressing it two times again turns off Caps Lock as well as the LED indicator.  But sometimes it still behaves eradically. Any software update on this?

Lenovo Y720 So, when I hit caps ock or num lock an on screen display tells me whether capslock or num ock has been pushed. While I appreciate it is helpful for some, in my case it become a hinderance. You need to remove "num lock" for single key print screen request, and if I have a short time frame, I am stuck without being able to screenshot until the num lock indicator goes away.  How do I turn off the on screen display.  Now, before you send me to the previously asked questions of similar nature, I have tried. There is no "display settings" in Control Panel. There is no "advanced display settings" on the settings panel. And there is no way to control it through NVIDIA or Intel graphics settings (that I can see).  Thanks kindly.

The problem is that every time we start to enter the password a warning pops up saying that the password may not work due to caps lock being on. Is there an easy way to get rid of this warning or maybe by editing the registry? I would rather not change my password to lower case.

I've had my laptop for 2 or 3 years and have never had this issue. After powering down yesterday, when turning it on, the Caps Lock key is engaged and no matter what I do (quick press, sustained press of button) it won't turn off and therefore my windows password isn't working (no caps). I've tried searching for a solution but everything indicates a 'stuck' key can be turned off via the control panel but I can't even get there b/c I can't login.

I've powered down two full times now to no avail.

Hello,
I have read in many places how to set caps lock to turn off using the shift key OR the caps lock key (but not both; technically it's "shift XOR caps lock"), but I'd like to find a way to turn off caps lock using EITHER shift or caps lock.

This is mainly to remove the ridiculous behaviour where, if I've got caps lock ON, when I press shift, it produces lower case characters. When would anyone ever need this? Never is the answer, and that's why on Mac OS systems, pressing shift while caps lock is on has no effect (other than producing symbols on the number keys). So I thought "ah! If I press shift, it'll turn off caps lock, great!". But the control panel method only has a mutually-exclusive radio button, so I can set shift to turn off caps lock, but not caps lock to turn off caps lock as well. How ludicrous is that?

So does anyone know of a way (a registry hack?) to enable caps lock to be turned off using EITHER caps lock OR shift? So basically I'd be enabling both the options in that control panel.

And I don't want to disable the caps lock key entirely; I don't tend to use it FOR SHOUTING but often, in my graphic design work, clients want stuff set in all upper case (which I normally apply as a character style but some apps don't have that support).

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

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.

Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

Answer:G50 going to sleep when holding down shift key

hi Neil,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Can you try to boot in Safe Mode and observe.
 
If the machine works fine in Safe Mode then it's likely that there's an application running in the background that's triggering the sleep function while holding down the Shift key. To isolate, follow this guide on how to perform a clean boot and observe the functionality in Normal mode.

Alright, so I just got a couple of new computers (a desktop--Gateway--and a laptop--Acer), because my old ones were stolen in a house robbery.
Anyways, my desktop computer has Windows Vista on it, whereas the laptop has Windows 7 on it.
My problem is that, somehow, the "secondary shift characters" are turning on, staying on for a while, and then turning off (it can be a long while--as in hours). I have the feeling I'm doing/pressing something to make this happen but maybe it's just a glitch (it's happening on both the laptop and the desktop, pretty much everytime I'm on them, so I have my doubts it's a glitch).
Basically, when I hold SHIFT and press a button, a different character will come up than ''normally would.'' So, for example, SHIFT + 6 will yield a ?, instead of the ^, SHIFT + ' will give ` instead of ", and SHIFT + / will give ? instead of ? -- all of the "other characters" that are shown on these ''newer'' keyboards.
This is starting to become infuriating, as it seems to be a result of something I'm pressing (but I can't figure out what), and when it does I have to either figure out where the appropriate characters are, or use the character map (which is starting to eat up time).
Gateway support told me to do a power drain (because, to their knowledge, there is no "secondary shift key" option). Honestly, I'm getting sick of Gateway support so I was just wondering if anyone on here has had this happen/knows how to turn t... Read more

This may be happening due to the change of Keyboard layout. check whether it is set to English-US. To check this, go to Control Panel then select Region and Language settings.Then check the keyboard settings.

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.

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.

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.

It has happened occasionally that after holding the shift key down for some time (while thinking about what I was going to type), I saw a dialog box related to holding down the shift key, and then, after clicking Cancel, could not type in any window, and had to reboot.  I'm guessing there's a key sequence to undo this (Shift F3 didn't work).  If so, does anyone know what it is?  I did find the following on the Internet (after I posted this topic):Disable StickyKeys by pressing both "Shift" keys at the same time. Another way to disable it is to press the "Ctrl" and "Shift" keys simultaneously.Read more: http://www.ehow.com/how_4822850_undo-sticky-keys.html#ixzz31FGrhjVE

Answer:After holding the shift key for a while, I could not type in any window

Is this a USB or PS2 keyboard? I have seen some USB keyboards act up after a key was held in too long. Replacing the keyboard with a different model fixed it. Had this happen a while ago with gaming and holding down CTRL key to speak through ventrilo. The keyboard would eventually become unresponsive. And to get it back I had to unplug the  USB cable while system was running and plug the USB cable back in as the temp fix. But when replacing the cheap USB keyboard the problem was gone for good.

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.

I have to go into the high contrast section, enable HIGH then turn it off, to bring back the normal contrast - trying 2 adjust regular monitor and also catalyst settings - dont fix it.

Anyone know whats going on? OS : Win 7 Home Premium.

Hi,
I have a document which has hundreds of words in ALL CAPS (amongst other words that I wish to leave), which I want to turn to lower caps italics. Here's my macro so far:

Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
Selection.Find.Replacement.ClearFormatting
With Selection.Find
.Font.BOLD = False
.Font.Size = 12
.Text = " [A-Z][A-Z]{1,14}"
.Replacement.Text = "^&"
.Replacement.Font.Italic = True
.Replacement.Text.Case= wdLowerCase
.Forward = True
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.Format = True
.MatchCase = False
.MatchWholeWord = False
.MatchAllWordForms = False
.MatchSoundsLike = False
.MatchWildcards = True
End With
Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll

I want it to ignore Bold headings, hence the fontsize 12 and BOLD commands early on in the macro.

I'm stuck on the line in red - keep getting invalid message. How do I turn replacement text to lower caps? Can't work it out.

I'm already aware of how to toggle caps on off etc with F3. But I need to run this for hundreds of words, hence why I wish to create a macro. Anyone know how to change replacement text case?

Thanks in advance.
Derrick
 

Answer:Word Macro to turn all caps into lower caps

I don't think you can do a "replace all" in this particular situation. The code would need to be modified to search for each instance of Caps one at a time using a loop and do the changes to each one separate. I can help with the coding but I can tell you right now it won't run very efficiently especially considering the number of instances you say there could be.

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.

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.

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.

Hi,I bought a Dell laptop (Inspiron 17/5000 Series) last month and when I edit text, for example in Microsoft Word, I can press CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT/RIGHT ARROW to select one word.

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).

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.
 
 
Regards,

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.

Any help in this area would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Ok, I have a problem I have set up the sound, and it does not play a sound.

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. There used to be an icon indicator but not anymore and I don't know why. 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? 

Answer:caps lock and num lock indicator isn't working....

Hi jarryd,
 
Welcome to the community,
 
This should be fixed easily by installing the latest version of the power management driver.
 
I am not sure what machine you have so you can find it at our support site:

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!












Solved!

Answer:Y50 Remove Caps lock/Num lock indicator?

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.

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.

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

Is there a way with the X61 and Vista to engage shift-lock and control-lock in tablet mode? Essentially, I'm trying to get extended pen (mouse) selections but I'm not seeing how to do it. Thanks

Answer:Shift lock, Control lock

did some quick googling. I havent found anything that would help. I do have a few suggestions. Do some searching on tablet pc's and macros. Also, have you looked into gestures? I am not sure if there are gestures in xp tablet, but Vista has gestures. It may allow you to do what you need to do.

When I hit the power on button on my computer, it takes anywhere from five minutes to eight hours to start up. While starting up, and while running, the CAPS lock and NUM lock lights flash once about every 2.75 seconds.

I looked up the HP error codes, one flash is supposed to signify a CPU problem...but I can run Half-life 2, WoW, Runes of Magic, and 8 track Guitar Pro 5 files just fine. So I figure my CPU's (AMD Turion x2 dual core @ 2.0 Ghz) got nothing wrong with it.

I've spoken to HP support, they told me to reimage my computer to factory settings...I've done that, twice....flashed the BIOS...and tried running startup repair....any hints?
