Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Caps Lock, Num Lock and Sticky Keys sound toggle

I have recently purchased a new presario C700 Compaq laptop with windows Vista pre-installed. I love everything about it EXCEPT:

In "the ease of access" section of control panel, I have activated the toggle keys for CAPS LOCK, NUM LOCK or SCROLL LOCK, also the STICKY KEYS. Unfortunately, even at full volume, the sound emitted when any of these keys are depressed is a pathetic, almost inaudible scratchy squeak, instead of the usual distinct BEEP with a different tone for ON and OFF.

My laptop has been back to the shop 3 times and to the "Techguys' " workshop 5 times, without success. I am told that no fault has been found, despite the fact that the MS expert says it is a fault and everyone, including those at the shop, agree that the sound is pathetic.

QUESTIONS
Is this a fault?
Can it be corrected?
Is it a characteristic of this model?

Pressing the CAPS LOCK or NUM LOCK there is a beep.


launch the Toggle Keys dialog box by holding down the Num Lock button for five seconds, and clicking Yes. Thereafter, a loud beep will sound through your computer's speakers whenever Caps Lock is turned on or off. (To turn Toggle Keys off, once again hold down your Num Lock button for five seconds.)

Caps lock light does not show


You can use the accessibility features of Windows to audibly notify you when you've pressed the Caps Lock key. Follow these steps:


Click on Start >> Click Control Panel.

Click Ease Of Access >> Select "Change how your keyboard works" from Ease of Access Center.


Check the Box for Turn on Toggle Keys.
Click Apply. Click OK.

The ToggleKeys feature, when turned on, will beep whenever the Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock keys are pressed.

hope this helps

Sound Driver of a Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC


Reinstallations of XP sometimes do not install all of the sound files needed. Do a google search for UAA, it is Microsoft's audio file. Download it, install it and then run Windows update. The drivers for your machine should be under the Hardware section of the updates.

CAPs lock key is on al the time


When you start your PC, Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and Caps Lock don’t automatically toggle on. You can automatically turn each of them on or off whenever your PC starts, for all accounts on the PC. As a practical matter, most people probably want to have only Num Lock automatically turned on, but this Registry hack gives you the power to force any combination of keys on or off.

Start>Run then type in "regedit" whithout quotes.

HKEY_USERS.DefaultControl PanelKeyboard.
3eaaaca.jpg Find the String value
InitialKeyboardIndicators. By default, it is set to 0, which means that Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and Caps Lock are all turned off. Set it to any of the following values, depending on the combination of keys you want turned on or off:
0 Turns off Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock
1 Turns on Caps Lock
2 Turns on Num Lock
3 Turns on Caps Lock and Num Lock
4 Turns on Scroll Lock
5 Turns on Caps Lock and Scroll Lock
6 Turns on Num Lock and Scroll Lock
7 Turns on Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock
Exit the Registry. When you restart, the new setting will take effect.

Note: You have problem with Caps Lock so just modify Caps lock option on Regedit.
And do not forget to run virus scan on your computer once you are done.

Rate always the all answers.

Thank you
