My typing goes uppercase without hitting the caps lock

I will be typing away and lowercase becomes uppercase without hitting the caps lock.  If I move my cursor, it starts highlighting everything I have typed up to that point.  I have to turn off my machine and restart.

I have the HP Pavilion and cap locks does the same thing.
THIS WORKS EVERY TIME. Hit both the right and left shift lock simultaneously about 5 to 10 times. It immediately disengages the cap locks. It is a little bit of a hassle, but I'm just used to it. It may happen 3 times per week, but I LOVE the machine, so I just fix it this way!

I've had this problem before. Try the on screen keyboard. Maybe the Caps Lock button is on.

My HP does the same thing sometimes, and I found that the shift key just gets 'stuck', not literally stuck down but it's as if the computer thinks I'm pressing the shift button. All I do is tap it and everything goes back to normal. My control key has also done this.

Check left mouse key to see if it has warped downward and it just on the hairy edge of actuating the micro switch. I'm thinking of using a hairdryer to bend mine back up

Laptop keyboard trays are sensitive to a lot of things. Mine will occasionally jump to the beginning of the line while I'm typing as if I hit the "home" key but I didn't. I think these are similar problems. Give your keyboard a good cleaning with some compressed air and it may help. Try typing without your hands resting on the computer for a little while and see if it still does it. I realize you can't do this for long because it hurts after a while, but it may be the pressure of your hands is causing something to get pressed like the left mouse key.

Where can I find the vertical typebar adjustment?


Guessing the buffer resting stops for smalls and possibly capitals have moved ir come loose? They should be adjustable with a small spanner and screwdriver. Or if not adjustable you might have to slightly slightly bend the resting stops! However before doing any off the a both check the plate under machine where the shift lock rests. That might be very loose abd give some similar problems. Best

Quiet deluxe typewriter


This is called motion adjustment
I assume the "segment" or the type faces go up and down when you shift? otherwise the "platen" where paper goes goes up and down either way there are a bump stop that is adjustable. usually with a flat blade screwdriver and a 5/16" wrench. there will be a bump stop on each side that must be adjusted equally however only one may be loose causing the problem. but first you should check the linkage for bends or binds shift lock should hold it to the maximum against the stops.

Want to make german Umlaut symbols on keyboard


Every so often you may find you need to type a character on your computer that is either foreign or just not available on a standard keyboard.
The German umlaut is once such symbol.
Used in the German language to indicate a change in sound, the umlaut can sometimes be found in names and words we use in the United States as well.
The literary Bronte sisters, for example, use an umlaut over the E in their last name.
Umlaut's can be found over the vowels A, E, I, O, U and Y in both lowercase and uppercase forms

Hold down the alt key on your PC.
The next step depends on the vowel and case you want for your umlaut.
If you want a lowercase A with an umlaut, type the numbers 0228 on the keypad while holding down the alt key.
If you want an uppercase A with an umlaut, hold down the alt key and type 0196.
Hold down the alt key and type 0235 for a lowercase E with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0203 for an uppercase E with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0239 for a lowercase I with an umlaut. Hold down alt and type 0207 for an uppercase I with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0246 for a lowercase O with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0214 for an uppercase O with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0252 for a lowercase U with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0220 for an uppercase U with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0255 for a lowercase Y with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0159 for an uppercase Y with an umlaut.

Typing an Umlaut on a Mac


Hold down the option key on a Mac computer and press the letter u.
Then release both keys and type the letter for which you want the umlaut.
For example, if you want a lowercase A with an umlaut, you would hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter a.
If you want an uppercase A, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter A.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter e for an umlaut over a lowercase E.
If you want an uppercase E, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter E.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter i for an umlaut over a lowercase I.
If you want an uppercase I, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter I.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter o for an umlaut over a lowercase O.
If you want an uppercase O, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter O.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter u for an umlaut over a lowercase U.
If you want an uppercase U, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter U. And for an umlaut over an uppercase Y, hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter Y.
For a lowercase Y, hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter y.

How to change the uppercase and lowercase letters


Either by pressing and holding the shift key (on left and right of keyboard, looks like up arrow) while typing, or by pressing the CAPS LOCK key to put capitals on or off. The caps lock key is usually one above the left shift key.
If you cant find them just advise your make and model of computer and I could tell you exactly where the keys are.

    Letter remains in uppercase


    Is the caps lock key light on? If so hit the caps lock key to get the light to turn off. If it doesn't turn off then your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

    I dont know anything about cap locks i have to get a new password every time i log in to facebook and i dont know why they keep rejecting my password HELP


    Caps lock is that key on the left side of your keyboard. When pressed, it makes all letters that are typed in into uppercase letters. For example; without caps lock pressed: "pressure". With caps lock pressed: "PRESSURE". If it mentions something about passwords being "case sensitive," this means that an uppercase letter A (A) is recognized differently than a lowercase letter A (a). Since you can't see your password being typed, it is important to make sure caps lock is not pressed. If this becomes too complicated, open up MS Word, notepad, or wordpad and type your password there so you can see it, then copy and paste the password into the password space on facebook. Good luck with that.
