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?

Hi jarryd,
 
Welcome to the community,
 
This should be fixed easily by installing the latest version of the power management driver.

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.

Sporting Windows XP (32-bit) on my T530 and as of recently, Caps Lock indicator has stopped working. 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?

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?

The most recent build (9860) of the Windows 10 Technical Preview was released on October 21 - but earlier today, Microsoft teased a new build on the way. We said it might arrive today, and indeed it has, as the company has confirmed that build 9879 is now being pushed out.

You can get the latest version of Windows 10 by going to Windows Update and checking for the updates within that panel. If you need more detailed instructions, you can find them here.

Now, Microsoft does point out that there are some known problems with the new build. The company says that "as with the last build, you're getting hot-off-the-presses code which means there are a few issues". These include:
In some cases you may get a black screen when trying to log-in or unlock. The only option is to hold the power button to hard reboot.
You will be unable to connect to Distributed File System network locations.
Some systems may see disk growth of 20GB+ due to driver install duplication. On systems with low disk space this can block setup and cause a rollback to the previous build.
Skype calls will disconnect and Music will stop playing if those apps are minimized.
There are several known issues with screen sharing with Lync.
Fixes for the first two issues in that list will be coming via Windows Update "shortly", according to Microsoft, but the remaining issues will not be resolved immediately.

One feature that is likely to be popular in 9879 is the ability to hide the Search... Read more

Answer:Technical Preview build 9879 released

Windows 10 enterprise ISO of build 9879 now available

Microsoft released a new build of Windows 10 earlier this week and if you are wanting to use the ISO files to perform a clean install, you can now do so for the enterprise SKU.

If you head to the source link at the bottom of this page, you will be able to download the build 9879, but you will have to fill out some profile information first. There are a few languages available that include, English, English (Great Britain), Chinese (simplified) and Portuguese.

These ISO files make it easy to install the latest version of the technical preview from a clean slate so you do not have to jump through the upgrade hoops to acquire the latest builds.

If you have installed 9879, let us know how it is working for you and if you find anything new, make sure to send us a tip.

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.

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.

If yes, Uninstall that.
 
You can also try uninstalling Lenovo Energy Management from Add remove programs.

I got the X230t and I'm returning it due to numerous build quality issues (a mod has buried my post on the topic), and I'm considering getting a T430 instead. One of the things I don't like on the X230t is that there's no way to tell when caps lock is on or off. They removed the LED from the screen, but didn't put one in on the new Chiclet keyboard. Is this the same situation with the T430?

On they old keyboard, there was a dedicated green indicatory light on the key itself, which is missing on the keyboard. Now, I realize that the new keyboard affects all thinkpads alike, but the reason I'm posting this here is because my Thinkpad Edge (E530) has a dedicated numpad, thereby making me use the numlock much more often I am aware of the  often-suggested windows 7 software-sided fix: screen resolution > advanced settings > on screen display However, the issue with this is that is that it groups the caps lock and numlock together. What if I want the numlock to be default on and NOT shown on-screen, but still wanted to be reminded on-screen if I [accidentally] have the caps lock on? Is there a solution to this or is this another problem that Lenovo overlooked when upgrading the keyboard?

Answer:No dedicated indicator on caps lock key

Hey Gleipnir,
 
The only solutions is what you have said is the windows 7 and going into the on screen display and picking which of the two options works for you. It's unfortunate that with the removal of the light indicator for the caps lock and num lock have had a negative effect on your use of a thinkpad laptop. I wish there was more we could do, if you have any other questions please feel free to come back to the forums we are more then willing to help.

I bought a new laptop, and would like to have an indicator that constantly shows whether caps lock is on or off, that would display on the screen or task bar.  Currently, there is a tiny light on the caps lock button, but it's on the right hand side of the button, so it's not easily viewed unless I move my hand out of the way, and it also turns off when the light of the backlit keyboard goes out.  Thanks.

When I hit Caps Lock, a display pops up in the lower right corner of the screen to notify me of the change.  It looks like this: http://i55.tinypic.com/15xez9.png How do I stop this from happening?  I've found a bunch of workarounds via Google, and they all either don't work for me or don't apply.

Answer:Caps Lock indicator in lower right of screen

 Looks like you have a wireless (bluetooth) keyboard. Easy way (if you don't use Bluetooth)Click Start.Type MSCONFIG.Allow User Account Control? - click Yes.Click Startup tab.Remove check marks from "Bluetooth Software" and/or "HP Desktop Keyboard".Restart computer. If you want to only shut down the little graphical presentation and you want to keep the bluetooth icon, use the steps above to prevent "HP Desktop Keyboard" from loading, but do not remove the checkmark next to bluetooth.And then prevent the OSD for the bluetooth caps lock indicator by making a minor change in the registry:Click Start.Type REGEDIT.Allow User Account Control? - click Yes.To backup your registry (in case soething goes haywire), select Computer, click File menu, click Export, give a name and save.After backing up registry, open each of the following registry values (the little folders) in this path:  HKEY_LOCAL_MCHINE_\SOFTWARE\Widcomm\BTConfig\General\Double-click the value KeyIndication in the list on the right.Change the hex value from a one (1) TO A ZERO (0).Close the registry editor window and restart your computer. You don't need to save anything - it happens on the fly (scary).

I've got a Yoga 11e running Windows 10 and like a lot of people I find the caps/num lock indicator popping up while typing sometimes quite annoying. However, because the keyboard doesn't have an inidicator that lights up when a user turns caps lock on or off I don't want to get rid of it entirely because it's useful. I just hate that it pops up right in the middle of the screen.  Is there a way to move the indicator from the center of the screen to the far right or left? All of the threads I've seen only focus on turning it on or off.

Answer:HP On-Screen Caps/Num/Scroll lock Indicator

Hi, khdphd, and welcome to the forum....

They say they cannot download the file? I have always seen every HP that uses those hkCMD.exe files to be able to download them for that computer in the event of a reinstall.

Did you look at software available for download for your computer? If it is there, then you can download it, uninstall the current version, reboot and install that one and it should load the original files back in place.

Try uninstalling hkcmnd from Programs and Features (it may be named something a bit more fancy)

And I know what HP *said* - but look anyway.

Answer:G470 - Caps Lock Indicator missing

hi brunobera,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
It's weird that when doing Fn+ Brightness/Volume Up/Down, the on-screen animation works but not with the capslock/numlock as these are in one single feature. If they used to work before, have you tried uninstalling and re-installing the Lenovo Energy Management software? This is the utility that makes the hotkeys & indicators work.
 
Try this link:
Lenovo Energy Management v6.0.2.8 17 - Windows 7 32&64bit - 13.6MB
 
 
Let us know if you get any errors.
 
 
Cheers

Hi,I am bewildered by this - all of a sudden, at some point during my work today - the caps lock indicator is no longer showing on the screen (which I had it configured to do since there is no light on the keyboard <different rant>). Now I can't remember where I set that! I saw online somewhere that I should go to Control Panel / Display / Screen Resolution (of all the STUPID places) / Advanced Settings / On Screen Display. I have no such tab. I have a tab called Screen Configurations, but all it has is Foreground color, Background color, and Fadeout time, and a check box for Enable on-screen display, which is CHECKED. None of the other tabs have anything related to the caps lock (and num lock) notifications being on the screen. BTW: It also does not even BRIEFLY appear when I hit the caps lock... Anyone know what's going on? It will be really stupid if I have to reboot to fix this! I've made no changes today. Except I had to kill a "maintenance in process" that ground me to a halt - just like yesterday. I have this set to go at 1 AM but for some reason both today and yesterday, it is doing it in the middle of the day while I am actively working on my machine. p.s. I am on windows 8.1

I'm not sure what you are asking. I think it's either (a) if it's possible to dual boot W10 TP, or (b) if you can reinstall WP10 TP over an existing installation, likely with the intent to achieve a clean/fresh install (not repair). The answer to both is "yes", although the procedure is different.

Hi guys. Recently bought my second Y2P, this one second hand. Reason being my previous one was the 4GB i5 model, this one is the 8GB i7 Now I've noticed a few things when I compare them. Firstly, and most annoyingly, the screen on this one is significantly dimmer than on my previous one. When I put it it max brightness it's only a little brighter than half way on my older one. When I put the brightness all the way down the screen turns off... I''ve already disabled auto dim in the battery settings, windows setting AND intel graphics control panel so I'm sure it's not down to that. I'm running the updated BIOS on both the systems also. This is unbelievably frustrating. Another annoying thing is that the CAPS lock indicator light is always on. Apart from when I press a button, it turns off whilst anything is being pressed (on the keyboard). It does this as soon as the machine is switched on. BIOS setting have been reverted to standard etc and nothing seems to be fixing any of it. I have also done a full reset of the machine on numerous occasions. Nothing. One last niggle is that I've noticed that the touchpad is ever so slightly sunk in (something that I probably only noticed because I have another yoga to compare it to) and there is some play in the touchpad which I would have noticed this regardless. Is it time to contact Lenovo warranty team?  Sorry for the long post, and I'd really appreciate any advice!

Answer:Y2P dim screen, caps lock indicator stuck on. Already disabled adaptive brighness... Warranty?

Just to keep the thread updated in case by any chance someone has similar problems... I've contacted Lenovo who are saying it's likely a motherboard issue, I'll be getting a letter with details of how to arrange a courier to collect the system within the next few days. I'll let y'all know what comes of it!

If you are updating an existing version of Windows to the Windows 10 Technical Preview, do not be concerned if Windows Update immediately prompts you to reboot your computer because of a new update. It seems the updater installed the Update for Windows (KB2990214) update in order to allow you to install the technical preview.Here is info about the update, which is not informative at all:Installation date: ?10/?1/?2014 12:15 PMInstallation status: PendingError details: Code 80242014Update type: ImportantFix for KB2990214More information:http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=2990214Help and Support:http://support.microsoft.com

The Windows Store has completely stopped working for me-- I can't update or download apps, because whenever I do, an error code comes up. The most recent error code I've gotten is "0x80073cf1". What's going on? Previously, restarting the computer would fix it, but it doesn't help anymore.

Sounds like some component of Windows Update may be screwed up on that installation. You could try resetting the Windows Update components or just reinstall Windows.

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..!
