Hello,
Anyways, you can use the shift key to convert the password characters in lower case.
All you need to do is to press shift+your password.
Remember that you need to hold the shift key down while pressing all other keys to write in lower case.
Also, with your keyboard you may need to get help from a local repair.
Please do tell us that you have the problem fixed.
We are always available for your help.

Regards.

    Hello,
    Ok, nice to know that you have logged on.
    Well, the new problem seems to be a bit interesting. Try this:


    • Open the internet explorer, go to tools, select internet options, and then reset the internet explorer.

    • If this doesn't work, try resetting the key board from the control panel.
    Let me know what happens.

    Regards.

Hi,

That UP arrow refers to an UPPER CASE letter. If ever you press the CAPS LOCK key, it should turn off, if it does not it means the CAPS LOCK key for some reason is stuck. Try restarting the computer and by then the CAPS LOCK should be disabled.

Please let me know if it helped by selecting YES. Thank you for choosing FixYa! Your rating will help me succeed and continuously help a lot people.

I HAVE A LOCK WITH A NUMBER 1 ON AND CANNOT USE MY LOWER CASE KEYS> HOW DO I UNLOCK WHATEVER I HAVE LOCKED?


try pressing the caps lock key once, if still your caps lock key does not respond then possibly the key is stuck, try backing up your data first do a system restore when you think you can still use lower case on your keyboard then check if there will be changes, if still no changes occur, a long shot would be re imaging windows back to defaults again make sure you back up data first the then try again once windows is reinstalled if no changes then your keyboard works but the caps lock key is busted ^_^ I do not see any other option for the caps lock key to be troublshooted. ^_^

Otherwise.. youmay have to contact yahoo direct for assistance logging in...

Keyboard stuck in upper case


Is the caps lock light illuminated? If so, you might have to hold shift and hit caps lock to turn off the caps lock. This is an option for old typists who came from manual typewriters that you might have turned on by mistake.
