Question about HP Pavilion dv8000z Notebook
I will be typing away and lowercase becomes uppercase without hitting the caps lock. If I move my cursor, it starts highlighting everything I have typed up to that point. I have to turn off my machine and restart.
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!

The simultaneous pressing 10x of the left and right shift keys work to disengage Cap lock problem!!

I've had this problem before. Try the on screen keyboard. Maybe the Caps Lock button is on.

My HP does the same thing sometimes, and I found that the shift key just gets 'stuck', not literally stuck down but it's as if the computer thinks I'm pressing the shift button. All I do is tap it and everything goes back to normal. My control key has also done this.

Check left mouse key to see if it has warped downward and it just on the hairy edge of actuating the micro switch. I'm thinking of using a hairdryer to bend mine back up

Laptop keyboard trays are sensitive to a lot of things. Mine will occasionally jump to the beginning of the line while I'm typing as if I hit the "home" key but I didn't. I think these are similar problems. Give your keyboard a good cleaning with some compressed air and it may help. Try typing without your hands resting on the computer for a little while and see if it still does it. I realize you can't do this for long because it hurts after a while, but it may be the pressure of your hands is causing something to get pressed like the left mouse key.
