Ann, make sure you are using the same type of authentication on both devices. Second, ensure they are both the proper upper and lower case, as they are case sensitive. It might have a caps lock on or a num lock on, depending on keyboard configuration... Let us know what's up..
That model goes to a LCD monitor, not keyboard. Windows can make a tone when you hit the cap locks, so you can use that as indicator or you can use the on-screen keyboard which should visually show the cap locks being pressed.
1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.
2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.
3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.
4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again
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.

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.
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.
Have you checked with another keyboard? at the moment there's no telling if the problem is with the keyboard or with the computer.
If the problem is solved with another keyboard, and a driver update does you no good, I don't think it's worth your time and money. keyboards come cheap these days.
