Make sure it is connected correctly to your CPU, turn off your computer and restart the system, the keyboard light should blink, if it doesn't repeat the same process.

Some Keyboards have the option to display capslock on screen. To check if you can, try this
  1. Open Control Panel. In Windows 8 you can access it by right clicking the bottom left of your screen, and clicking Control Panel.
  2. Double click Keyboard. The Keyboard settings panel should pop up.
  3. If you see a Keyboard Settings tab near the top of the panel, click it, and see if there is an option to display Capslock on screen.

You can try this 3rd Party software :
CAPSLOCK Notifier 1 1

Alternatively, Dell provides a driver to display capslock on screen, however it is for a different keyboard model, so I am not sure if it will work with yours.

I have HCL Ezeebee desktop computer when we boot the system monitor, keyboard, mouse blink for a while and monitor (HCL) show 'no signal' message, and keyboard num lock led not display mouse i


No signal at the monitor indicates (if you know the monitor is working ok) a failure of the graphics chip or graphics card, The lack of indicator light on the num lock LED and the lack of power to the mouse would indicate that there is a major issue with the motherboard.
you can try using another monitor to confirm the problem lies with the graphics, and in the case of the keyboard and mouse, swap them for a usb version, if they work, the Ps2 ports are probably damaged.
I'd be thinking of replacing the motherboard

My acer keyboard shows caps lock on (on screen display) but in reality the caps lock is off. Same thing the other way round, when it shows caps lock off it types in caps. Help please.


This is a very strange one ..I never heard before ..but I think it is a windows error and can be fixed by reinstalling the windows from the recovery partition .To engage it ..look on screen at start cause teh key is indicated and if you press the key for recovery it will show the start screen ..choose to reinstall the system completely with drivers ..or install the drivers after from the same place .. remember to move personal files into D drive before doing ..cause all files in C drive will be deleted ..

If i press function key then all the keys work good otherwise keys just type numbers.


You have the number lock in the ON position.
The function key is usually of a different color (usually blue or green) look for the key with has the words Num Lock of the same color as the function key usually its the same key as the ScrLK (scroll lock)key. While holding the function key press the number lock key then release all keys and try to type.
Most computers have a light that indicates when the number lock is on just like the Caps lock on a desktop its on the keyboard, on a laptop the lights are either above the keys or on the bottom of the screen, look at the lights and you should see a number 1. if its on then follow the steps above until it turns off.
Good luck

Make sure the caps are not locked. Look for a light on the keyboard somewhere indicating whether caps are locked or not. If locked , then unlock and try again.

I have recently purchased a Medion Wireless Keyboard-Caps Lock


I have a blue tooth mx 5500 key board and it is supposed to be advanced but has no light for caps lock. Only thing it does it beeps one tone for Caps Lock on and another for off and you have to set it up in software that came with it. Not sure how it is on this one but if there is no LED to show it it has to be setting in the software to let you know is it on or not. Hope this helps.

I have a Gateway 7010715R (KR-0532) HID keyboard. I have lost my on-screen display for lock key indicators because the keyboard does not have indicator lights like a wired keyboard. What controls this...


This OSD is controlled by your keyboard driver. If you were previously getting On Screen Display and you are not getting it now, it is possible that you might have disabled the startup items from mscofig. In that case enabling the startup items will resolve this issue. Or else re-install the driver and software of keyboard to resolve this issue.

Unable to locate indication of caps lock on or off


On the keyboard, there should be an area to the right top that will light up when you click the caps lock button. Typically this key is found above the shift key on the left hand side of the keyboard.

I have a Medion keyboard with my purchase of Medion PC model MT7. There is no light to indicate that Caps Lock is on - this creates difficulty when writing passwords with caps lock as the result is...


If this is a wireless keyboard there should be some kind of software that comes with it. The software should alert you when you push like scroll lock, caps lock, or num lock.

Or you can use this nifty little program that costs about $25. It stays in the icon tray and will notify you when you push any of those buttons. Here is a link to that website http://www.programurl.com/clever-keyboard-indicator.htm

I hope I have helped you.
