[SOLVED] Caps Lock/Volume Levels Notifications No Longer Appear

Question: [SOLVED] Caps Lock/Volume Levels Notifications No Longer Appear

There used to be notifications when I would press the Caps Lock key or adjust the volume using the "Fn" and Arrow Up/Down buttons on my laptop... but now they no longer appear. I must have uninstalled a program or disabled something and I'd like to get them back.

Did some googling and I use the "Ease of Access Centre" and now I have a BEEP noise when I click Caps Lock, but I want the notification on the screen, not noise!

Ty,

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?

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.

"..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,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 have a couple of problems at the moment...

Firstly, some time ago, the volume level display (a green indicator which came onto the screen) disappeared. I have been told that his was due to an update which needed to be done, but which for some reason got rid of the display. Short of taking off all the updates, is there any way of getting this back?

Secondly, the display lights for the caps lock and number lock have stopped coming on. The display light to show the hard disk is being written to is still working, but the other two beside it (caps lock and number lock) just stopped working. Is there some cause for this such as an update, or is it just that the bulbs have gone?????

All answers welcome!

Answer:Sat Pro L10 - Loss of Volume level display and Num/Caps lock indicators

Hi

Regarding the volume control notification on the display;
This volume level notification is controlled by software. Possibly the Microsoft updates influence this notification and therefore it doesn?t appear on the display. I presume some registry keys were changed? but I don?t know exactly what entries could be affected.

Regarding the second issue; keyboard lights;
Well, usually this has nothing to do with the installed software.
I think it could be a keyboard fault? but this is only my personal suggestion?

I don?t know how long the OS is running on your notebook but maybe it would be advisable to refresh the OS to ensure that new installation could helps to get rid of these issues.

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/

NumCapsScroll Indicator monitors the keyboard status of the Num, Caps and Scroll Lock buttons and indicates it with the following ways:
1. In the System Tray with its icon.
2. With a tool-tip when you mouse-over its System Tray's icon.
3. With a small On-screen Keyboard-like panel.

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.

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.

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.

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 year ago i was trying to save power. I was having issues with my cpu overheating. I went somewhere in my pc, i forgot where and in an effort to lower power consumption, i combined sounds in the volume mixer. The cpu issue has been solved. Now i want to
open 3 web pages that all use sound and i want to be able to have 3 different volume levels for each. I've forgotten where I went to to combine the volume levels. That what i want to know: where to go, in windows,k where i can un-combine the volume levels.

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.

Hi,

I am using a Dell Laptop Inspiron 1750. Windows 7 Service Pack 1 64 bit.

When ever I pressed the volume buttons, or caps lock button, or the wireless button I would get a small see thru popup window showing me the current setting of that button. Now the small see thru window is no longer appearing for the volume, caps, wireless...

Help. I would like the see thru windows to reappear. Would this be related to Dell QuickSet?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good afternoon,

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 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.

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.

Answer:caps lock and scroll lock blinking

Might be a ram issue try either removing one at a time if you have two.If not then try reseating the one installed and also do a memory diagnostic test.

AFAIK it shouldn't show up if you have a model with physical indicators.

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.

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?

I recently installed 2x8GB of RAM into my Elitebook 8530p that previously had 2X1GB. When I power my Elitebook on the screen stays off but my keyboard lights cone on and Num lock and Caps lock flash simultaneously in 5 sets of 3.
 

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

Caps lock and Num lock reversed

On my new Gateway ML6720, the caps lock and num lock are OFF, but my caps lock and num lock lights are on. And vice versa. I don't remember it being that way this morning when I first turned it on.

Why are the lights reversed from what I expected?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Caps lock and Num lock issue

Since it is New, I would call Gateway. They will have knowledge if this is a problem with the ML6720 model.

Had Motophoto convert DV tape to DVD.
DVD video & audio were fine on Dell desktop, Dell laptop and DVD player.
Had them convert VHS, VHS-C and 8mm film to DVD's.
Video fine on desktop, laptop & player.
When playing DVD's on desktop audio is present but have to increase volume
25 clicks above normal to hear and then there is a slight buzz in the background.
Audio on same DVD's plays fine on laptop & player.
Motophoto used a Sony burner for all conversions and cannot understand why DV on desktop is ok but on the VHS & VHS-C?s the volume is unacceptable. They played the DVD's on their equipment and the volume was at an acceptable level. They feel they have met their obligations in that the DVD's play on the laptop & player. I have asked them to provide me with the model number of the Sony burner.
It is critical that the DVD's work on the desktop in that it is has more memory, larger screen and keyboard. My goal in these conversions is to edit and produce my own DVD's. I have successfully completed this on the initial DV to DVD conversion.
Made a copy of one of the fully functional DVD's on the laptop. The audio on the copy played fine on the laptop. When I tried it on the desktop the audio issue again reappears.
Have tried commercial DVD's & CD's on the desktop and the volume is fine.
Have not added or deleted hardware or software since long before starting this project.
Will provide any addi... Read more
