I have the HP Pavilion and cap locks does the same thing.
THIS WORKS EVERY TIME. Hit both the right and left shift lock simultaneously about 5 to 10 times. It immediately disengages the cap locks. It is a little bit of a hassle, but I'm just used to it. It may happen 3 times per week, but I LOVE the machine, so I just fix it this way!

Follow the rest of the instructions in the wizard.

Make sure the device is turned on and that the batteries don't need to be replaced.

Make sure the Bluetooth adapter for your computer is attached and turned on, and that the device is turned on and discoverable.

If you're not sure how to turn on discoverability, read the instructions that came with the device or check the manufacturer's website.

For a printer, follow these steps:

Open the Add Printer wizard by clicking the Start Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, clicking Printers, and then clicking Add a printer.

First thing I would suggest is to test the charger with an electronic meter. Ensure you set it on DC and test if there is a constant power coming from it. For example, say it has an output of 14 volts DC, check if the flow is constant. If is not then you have a faulty charger. The next steps will be further complicated which I will not cover in this solution. I hope this helps you and good luck.

My HP dv9000 has exactly the same problem and it has never been opened since delivered new. The problems started a couple of weeks after I received it and got progressively worse.

  • Hi, the best thing to do at this point is perform a "System Restore." Try to remember the exact "Date before the problem occur, or once you start the System Restore, ("pick a date going back more than 5 days"), check the dates and see if any of the dates seem familar. Pick the closest date prior to the "Sound going out!" Type in the "Search Window" from the start menu: system restore; scroll to find, and open. Follow all the instructions carefully for the process to be successful. "Hope it works out for you; if so rating the help will let me know, thanks."

These laptops are hit and miss wirelessly to tell the truth. Take the wireless card out and make sure the antenna is attached to the card properly. You will see the two wires. Often times one fo these connections is broken. If so reattaching the antenna will solve the weak connections.
