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 :)

I want to down load cap lock soft ware


All you need is a good keyboard. Some used ones are good and new ones are better. Don't have to buy a licensed software for knowing if the CAPS lock is on because you would need to just push a button on the keyboard. It's best to check on your keyboard then waste time and money buying software that can take just a moment of just looking on the left side of the keyboard and just pushing on it. If you have Accessibility on in Windows you can allow it to turn it on for you by going to the On-screen keyboard.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.

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.

Unable to locate indication of caps lock on or off


On the keyboard, there should be an area to the right top that will light up when you click the caps lock button. Typically this key is found above the shift key on the left hand side of the keyboard.

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.
