Try taking out the CMOS battery and see if that makes a difference. Ask a friend for help first if you have never set up the BIOS on a PC before or check you Tube for a video change a CMOS battery.

Fellowes Keyboard numbers are not working. Cap-lock key works the opposite way. Types capital letters when off and small letters when on.

Is this keyboard designed to work with Windows 7 and higher? If so it will not work on windows XP and down.

How do I get my cap lock key unstuck on windows 7 computer

Cap lock key is not supposed to get stuck in any version of Windows. If your keyboard's cap lock is not woking, problem is not in Windows 7 but with your keyboard. You are not specifying if you hav a desktop computer or a laptop. If it's a desktop, go to any computer stpre and get a new keyboard. If your problem is with a laptop's keyboard and you don't know how to service them (most surely, you don't), it might not be a good idea to open your laptop and change the keyboard. A friend of mine tried to do this and he simply couldn't connect the keyboard. and finally he had to take it to service. So you should ask professional help to do this work.

Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.

If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard

Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

Control Panel\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.

hope this helps

How do I see that caps and numbers are locked for the Logitech MK250 for Windows 7. Many thanks

You should have software that comes with this combo. SetPoint 6.0 is the latest at the moment, and once installed and updated will show on screen if caps lock, num lock, function key's are active!

How to know the Cap Lock is on or off for my Microsoft wireless keyboard 4000?

I don't have one of these keyboards, but there is usually a small led built into the caps lock key to indicate the lock is on, Push the caps lock key, and observe if any leds are changing state. If they are, it's the indicator led.
Otherwise, you will have to open Wordpad and see the state of the key. It's possible the led isn't working, so check it's state in Wordpad.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

There should be a button called "numlock" which will enable to you use the keypad to the right of the keyboard, however, you don't need to "lock" the keyboard to use the numbers on the top row.

I have a lock with the number 9 inside it by cap lock indicator

Try using a different keyboard.

If that doesn't work, it may be a registry error within Vista, which is common.

Try running your anti-virus program if you have one; defrag; then goto either start;run or start;programs;accessories;command prompt - depending on what OS youre using

When you're in run or command prompt, type: chkdsk.exe

It should do some diagnostics and a quick scan. After that, restart and try it out
