caps lock no longer working!

  theDarkness 16:54 03 Aug 2009

The keyboard is plugged in ok, i have no viruses and have not installed anything new. The light for caps lock on the keyboard does not come on, the button does not work at all, although holding down standard shift to create capitals poses no problem. Bizarre! Ill guess its a simple case of using my windows cd to look for missing components/software/related drivers, but i wish i knew what could be a likely cause, to prevent it happening again? The lights on the keyboard for scroll lock and num lock work, and function.

I agree with DieSse about a non-working keyboard.

Does a reboot help at all?

And, you may want to try vacuuming the crumbs out, as banging might stop other keys from working! G

forgot about the CRUMBS issue- lol! Will try opening up later for a good clean, hopefully that will solve it
