Hi,
Due to the fact that the two keys are both together, i,d say that theres some muck under the keypad, thats sticking the 2 keys together. Try blowing air into the keyboard. Or put a vacuum cleaner on the keypad.
Don,t hold me responsible if the Vac, sucks the keys or Keyboard Up :)

Letters are all capital caps lock is off


you may have the Shift lock activated. keep pressing the shift key numerous times at a fast rate to bring p a prompt to deactivate it.
Failing that, you may have a stuck caps lock button (even if the led is off...yes it can still be stuck) so replace it

THE CAPS LOCK ON MY KEYBOARD ON AND OF IT SELF.


The most likely thing is that the users themselves have inadvertently
pressed Caps Lock. This is especially likely for anyone who learned to type
on a typewriter (and you can even configure Windows to make the Shift key
turn off Caps Lock just as it does Shift Lock on a typewriter). If this is a
real problem, there is a setting in the Windows Accessibility Options to
sound a tone whenever Caps Lock is turned on or off.

Hello,

Thank you for using fixya.

Here's what you need to do to turn on CAPS LOCK. Just press the button in keyboard that says "CAPS LOCK". It's located in the left corner in between the TAB and Shift button.

I hope this helps.

My caps wont turn off


Try this. Press: Start>Accessories>Accessibility>On Screen keyboard. Try turning it off from there. If that doesn't work:
1. Choose Start'Settings'Control Panel and double-click Regional and Language Options.
2. In the Languages tab, click the Details button.
3. In the Settings tab, you should see a button called Key Settings. It may be grayed out. If it is, click the Add button and add another keyboard layout (it doesn't matter which one). Press OK.
4. Back in the Settings tab, click to make sure your original keyboard is highlighted and press the Key Settings button.
5. Now under To turn off Caps Lock, click the radio button next to Press the Shift key. Click OK.
6. Click OK twice more to exit the other two dialog boxes.

Caps Lock will be on the left hand side of the keyboard and probably above the shift button and below the tab button. It's usually labelled as 'Caps Lock' or as an arrow pointing up.

Sounds like the shift key isn't entering. Try both shift keys and see if one will turn the light off. If so tou need a keyboard rebuild. It may be cheaper to replace it.

My keyboard acts like the shift button is down but when i plug in a usb board it does the same thing.


Check if the CAPS LOCK is on. The key to toggle this is right above the left Shift key (next to A). There is usually a light with the indicator near the top of the keyboard (other lights for Num Lock and Scroll Lock).

You can tell if it is a Caps issue if the pressing the numbers above QWERTY give the numbers not !@ etc.

I hope this helps.

(you should turn off the computer and clean both keyboards. Sometimes, some dirt gets into the keyboard and triggers stray signals. There are a number of cleaning products that work; just make sure the keyboard is dry before turning the computer back on.)

Stuck caps lock condition -- even if caps lock LED is off


disasemble the key board and clean it very well unplugged from pc of course..keyboards can go quick with a slight drop to the floor and will mess up buttons..walmart has them for 15 or 20 bucks..if all else fails.
