  1. Caps lock freezes keyboard


    Hi. When I press caps lock, my laptop keyboard freezes and it seems activates the Windows key at the same time. It also brings up speech recognition, multiple display function, and starts typing '8' on repeat if a text box is available. When I used a keyboard tester, it seems caps lock also activates ESC, F4, P, *, and 8 simultaneously. The only way to unlock my keyboard is by pressing caps lock again on the onscreen keyboard, or an external keyboard. My laptop is a HP Pavilion 15. My laptop has worked fine for years, but this issue started a few months ago, and tried many things to fix it. 1.

    It does.

    Try this -

    To show alerts visually in Windows 10 when using Caps Lock or Num Lock:

    Select the Windows icon on the Taskbar.
    Select Settings (Gear icon).
    Select Ease of Access.
    Select Keyboard from the left pane.
    Navigate to Use Toggle Key.
    Set the Play a sound whenever you press Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock option to On.
    Select the Windows icon, Settings, Ease of Access, Audio.
    Choose an option from the Show audio alerts visually drop-down.

    This is likely to be one of those where, as I don't know what you've already tried, I'll have spent time suggesting what you have tried.

    That's why I asked for a clear list of what you have tried.

    Do you see this when you toggle caps lock?

    Caps lock freezes keyboard

    No caps lock indicator with new keyboard?


    I got a new keyboard. It does not have a light that shows caps lock on or off.

    And a desktop indicator no longer shows caps lock as being turned on or off.

    How can I make Windows indicate the caps lock setting?

    Thank you for your help.
