I know this is an old post, but the LED code for CAPS lock on, F4 flashing, F5 on means memory issue. I had this issue, reseated the memory, and the issue was resolved.

I had the same problem and was able to fixed it by using the other set of wires that connects the display to the wireless adapter (on the bottom of the laptop) ... use the grey and white/grey wires instead of the black and white wires.

    Worked for me -- but I had the startup disk in an external drive. When I first switched the wires, came up well -- with notes on an unfinished install, and instructions to restart and reintall. When I tried to start up with the external drive, we were back to the caps lock, F5, and flashing F4. I'm thinking along the lines of a power issue with the draw from the external drive (D/bay PD01S)(which seems to run fine on an older Latitude)..

It might be a screen problem. Try connecting it to an external monitor.

Changing keyboard on Fujitsu T5010


Remove the square screw covers above the keyboard on either side of the swiveling screen hinge. Unscrew the 2 screws and use a small flat head screw driver to remove the plastic cover above the keyboard. Do this by inserting the screw driver underneath the plastic cover near to the f keys on the keyboard and gently pop the cover off. Carefully remove the ribbon from the motherboard, use a small screw driver to release the clip that holds the ribbon in place (ribbon located above f3,f4 keys). Slide the keyboard up and it should release if it doesn't then there may be some sticky tape holding the keyboard down, this is located behind the f2,f3,f4,f5 keys, carefully pull the keyboard away but hold the keyboard by the f keys so that you do not damage the keyboard by bending it. Reverse the procedure to fit new keyboard

Hi there, there are two possibilities here, one, the touch screen is compressed in 1 or more areas of the screen. two, it sounds like your PC has a prank virus in it that is causing unwanted side-effects. Try booting in safe mode on your tablet PC, and run a full virus scan.
