CAPS LOCK STATUS DOES NOT APPEAR ON THE SCREEN OR ON KEY BOARD


I don't know how to make this status appear, however here's a way around it.

Go to Control Panel. Ease of Access Center > Make the keyboard easier to use. Check the box next to "Turn on Toggle Keys. Hear a tone when you press CAPS LOCK, NUM LOCK, or SCROLL LOCK".

From now on, you're going to hear a beep whenever you press CAPS LOCK key on or off, the beep is slightly different depending on whether you press it on or off. Slightly higher pitch when you press the CAPS LOCK to stay on.

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.)

Dell Inspiron E1505 Will Not Turn on


Hi there.
Try cleaning the system memory and slots with a soft dry clean painbrush and re-seating it.
Also make sure the air vents and fan area is free of dust.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Function keys not working


try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicationg that the funtion keys are in use. depends on the brand
