There is a more obvious solution to try:
According to the Dell manual for the 1737

The backlit keyboard provides visibility in dark environments by illuminating all symbols on the keys.
Keyboard/ Touch Pad brightness settings — Press <Fn> and the right-arrow key to toggle between the three lighting states (in the given order).
The three lighting states are:

  1. full keyboard/touch pad brightness.

  2. half keyboard/touch pad brightness.

  3. no lighting.
Do you even have a back-lit keyboard? This was an option for some models.

Dell Studio 1737 with Back lit keyboard but Cap Lock Doesn't Light, replaced Keyboard less than 3 months ago, light worked then and went out just recently.


I'd try a different keyboard and see if the caps light works on that - so you can confirm whether it's the keyboard, or computer.
