Intermittent caps lock sounds - why?

I have Toggle Keys turned on in Accessibility Options (checked this many times) but often there are no sounds when I press caps lock, resulting in accidentally typing sentences all in capitals.

What do I have to do to ensure consistent beeps?

Samsung N110, XP.

Have a look here link text Your problem is often there are no sounds when I press caps lock, Maybe you need to "reverse" something in these settings.

Thanks northumbria61 but none of that worked. I have tried disabling and re-enabling the setting for Toggle Keys several times, but it works when it feels like it and not at other times.

However I've just googled ' Caps Lock' and come across a little free program called (strangely enough!) Caps Lock, installed it, and it is giving me sound AND visual alerts.

Thank you again for your interest; will tick as resolved.
