Caps are on all the time


Press the
"caps lock" key once to take it off capital letters. If that doesn't work, get an external keyboard and plug it in and try it. That should do it.

Gateway M460 capitalization issues


Try both shift keys, the left one may have died. Otherwise use Caps Lock.

Try this:
Navigate to Control Panel and double click Keyboard.
Select the Driver Tab at the top.
Now click Update Driver.

Updating the driver may work, otherwise a new board may be needed.

Take care!

To type capital letters, press the shift key which is the up arrow in the bottom left corner of the screen, and then press the key for your desired letter. If you would like caps lock, double-tap the shift key. Note that the caps lock will be deactivated if you change to the number keyboard or symbol keyboard.

I am trying to do a cap and can't figure out how to to change frame setting to be able to do this


Are you talking about making text capitalized?

If so, then all you need to do is hold down your "shift" key on the bottom left of your keyboard at the same time you press the letter in which you want to make capital and then release both keys.

If you want to type a whole line of capitalized letters, press the "cap lock" key on the bottom left side of your keyboard and then you dont have to hold down the shift key.

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


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

How to change the uppercase and lowercase letters


Either by pressing and holding the shift key (on left and right of keyboard, looks like up arrow) while typing, or by pressing the CAPS LOCK key to put capitals on or off. The caps lock key is usually one above the left shift key.
If you cant find them just advise your make and model of computer and I could tell you exactly where the keys are.

Uppercase


Your question is written with correct capitals ("What" instead of "what", "Do" instead of "do"), so I guess that you already know where the "uppercase" is: it's either the CAPS LOCK at the keyboard's far left (usually marked CAPS or with a lock icon), or the SHIFT key (usually marked with an upward arrow).

On the NSK8458AN keyboard, the CAPS LOCK is marked CAPS LOCK and is to the left of the A key,
