Lenovo Ideapad Y560P Will Not Boot. Caps Lock and Num Lock lights on.

Question: Lenovo Ideapad Y560P Will Not Boot. Caps Lock and Num Lock lights on.

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

And it can also mean that some vital part is not connected properly. Though there is possibility that the bios is corrupt. You can try a bios recovery if it by chance fixes it. See this linkhttp://forum.notebookreview.com/sager-clevo/326954-case-you-kill-your-phoenix-bios-bios-recovery-met...OR else, i strongly suggest that you should take your laptop to service, they can verify the machine once,Regards

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?

Answer:Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock lights no longer function

Welcome to Windows TenForums, Vaindil.

It doesn’t seem to work on anyone’s system and there doesn’t seem to be a fix yet. You can read here into the beginning of the next page if you like.

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.

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..!

My recent purchase of the above All-in-One PC (running on Windows 10) included the Lenovo SK-8861 keyboard which has no lights for the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK keys. How do I get them to be displayed on the screen when pressed? When I went into Display Settings in Control Panel, I could not find the option to set them on or off.  so, based on the instructions on https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht002122, I installed the Hotkey driver from http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/downloads/ds031814.  When I now go into Advanced Settings under Display Settings and click on Screen Configurations, I can see the Enable on-screen display checkbox and the Appearance settiings but the expected Indicator Settings for NUM LOCK and CAPS LOCK aren't being displayed as expected. Can anybody advise what I need to do to enable these settings? Lenovo On-Screen-Display is listed under the Installed Programs in Control Panel. Many thanks.      

Answer:Displaying the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK indicators on the Lenovo AIO 510 Ideacentre

I do not have an answer for how to enable them via the control plane, but I can point you to a free tool called Keyboard LEDs that I have used in the past that when installed will put an indicator in the system tray, and will sound a tone  and display on screen if so configured in its settings.. Cheers,

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

I was on my Y560 Model 0646 checking my email and the computer shut off on me.  I went to turn it back on and it does not turn on.  The caps lock and number lock light up.  Blue tooth, Battery, and Video status all light up above keyboard in status area.  None of the fans are going, and it does not sound like anything is running.  I tried removing the power and battery and pressing power button a few times.  Also tried to remove power and battery and holding down power and nothing.  It's almost like it freezes.  I can push the mute button and it lights up, but then cannot turn it off.  Please help.  Laptop just went out of warranty last month.

Answer:Y560 will not turn on. Caps Lock and Number lock light up but not fans or boot

I'm guessing it is because of the motherboard. Since it is out of warranty can a Y560 motherboard be purchased anywhere? Any ideas? Please help.

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.

Everytime I press caps lock, change volume i got  a notification pops up that often messes up the window focus. It's particularly annoying when trying to play games. Can I turn this off?
 
I searched around for other people having the same problem and the one solution I got was to change Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Widcomm\BTConfig\General KeyIndication to 0, but that's already set to 0 for me, and I'm still getting notifications. The solution with removing "lockkey.exe" is not working aswell. I just don't have program like this.

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 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.

Hi stewyscrewy,
Welcome to the Community,
If the system is not able to complete POST then keyboard status LEDs (Num Lock,Caps Lock,Scroll Lock) can be used as diagnostic indicator.
If the power LED stays lit when you turn on the system check and confirm the keyboard status LEDs.Do you notice any pattern.Example if the Num lock and Scroll lock is off but the Caps lock keeps flashing it indicates Memory(RAM) compatibility issue.
To resolve the memory compatibility issue you may try removing and reseating the memory module.If two modules are installed remove one and test. Try the other module in the same slot and test. Test the other slot with both modules.
Let me know your finding.
Thank You

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.

Model CQ61 319WM This is a friend's computer.  Yes, it's old.  But, it was working fine until it went into sleep mode last night.  Hasn't come up since. Searches took me to this HP support page.  Win+B and Power on does not show the BIOS restore screen.  It just shows the same black screen.  It mentions trying more than once.  I tried at least a half dozen times.  Removed the battery and unplugged the power for a few seconds prior to some of the tries. The BIOS download (sp48895.exe) does not provide the option to format a USB drive as bootable.  I searched around and created my own bootable thumb drive.  Then, copied the BIOS files onto it. Unfortunately, that method also uses the Win+B and power on to bring up the boot order screen.  All I get is black. There are a bunch of "black screen" threads on here.  I've read several of them.  But, I haven't found any others that appear to apply to this model. Suggestions appreciated. Drake Christensen

Hey all. Got windows 7 on my g555, with truecrypt on the drive, if it matters.  Last night, closed down the cover of my laptop before i fell asleep, like always, today it doesn't respond at all when I opened it back up.  Forced it to shut down, and haven't seen anything but a black screen since. The power light comes on, the fan comes on, and that's about it.  Can't get to the bios, can't do ANYTHING.  Tried unplugging it for a while, pressing power 10 times, holding power down for a minute, ran the battery entirely dry THEN discharged the caps, ...I've read many solutions where its the built up static charge that's the problem, but not here.  I've tried all versions of the solution I could find, all very similar, but none worked.  I took out my RAM and put it back in, and same for the hard drive.  No dice. The only lights I get at all are the power light, and the battery charging light next to it.  Can't get the CAPS LOCK, num lock, any of that to do anything.  Cannot boot by CD/DVD as I cannot change the bios, and can't get any response from any keys or key combos that I can think of (including the one-touch restore). Any advice?  What can I try here to get this sucker going again?

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.

I have G500 laptop running windows 8.1 64 bit.  I have noticed that there is no indicator light for when num lock is on.  The light on the front of the computer under the touchpad comes on when caps lock is active, but not for num lock.  Is there any indicator for num lock on this computer?

Answer:G500 indicator light works for caps lock, but not for num lock

Hi Kimikat730,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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

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?

Answer:Caps Lock and Num Lock Flashing.

I recently installed 2x8GB of RAM into my Elitebook 8530p that previously had 2X1GB.Click to expand...

The HP EliteBook 8530p Notebook PC supports a maximum of 8 GB of DDR2-800 RAM.
It has 2 SODIMM slots, so that means you can't install more than 4 GB in each slot.
4 GB X 2 = 8 GB

Hi all, I recently discovered that the Caps Lock and Num Lock OSD has stopped appearing when I activate/disactivate these functions. The functions still work, just that the notifications do not pop up. All the rest of the OSD notifications still DO work, like volume, ThinkLight, brightness, etc.I've checked the on-screen display settings in Control Panel and found that it set to 'enable' with fadeout at 3 seconds. I've turned it off and on to 'reset' it but to no avail. Help, please. Thanks in advance.

Answer:OSD for the Caps Lock and Num Lock is not appearing.

Which model do you have?Try installing latest Hot Keys driver.

Hello, I bought my pavilion 15 around 1 and a half years back. Yesterday, when I tried to turn on my laptop, the led in the caps lock button flashed 3 times along with a brief delay and then another 3 times. I researched into the problem and I found out the problem was with my RAM. The solution given by HP was to reseat the RAM, which I tried but didn't work. I tried other methods given by users and still to no avail. I finally got myself to save up and buy myself a new 8gb ram which was compatible with my PC. It was very frustrating to see even with the new ram the same problem showed up. I exhausted all the solutions given by other users so I decided to ask myself. Thank you.

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 computer fails to boot and gives me a caps lock code. The LED blinks twice. I have tried hard resetting and reseating the memory, but nothing worked. I have had this problem for a fairly long time, however in past the computer would eventually boot up after I forced turned it off and on a number of times. I am at the point now where over the past few days I have been trying this and it so far has still failed to boot up. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to fix this!
