Bad key on keyboard. Only answer is to replace keyboard. You could try cleaning it, the numlocks key, but it is usually the internal contacts
which are not accessable.

I may be totally retarded but I have no clue what the padlock with two arrows in it. It is on top of my keyboard next to the lighted indicators for num lock and shift lock.... anyone have any idea what...


Hi,


The scroll lock key was meant to lock all scrolling techniques, though it is no longer used by almost any software. In the original design, scroll lock was intended to modify the behavior of the arrow keys. When the scroll lock mode was on, the arrow keys would scroll the contents of a text window instead of moving the cursor. In this usage, scroll lock is a modifier key like ALT and SHIFT (which modify the function of other keys) and, more specifically, a toggling Lock key like NUM lock or CAPS lock, which have a state that persists after the key is released.


Regards;
Hassan

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
