    HELP!! My "caps lock" is stuck on!!

    :salams

    Well, the title says it all, really. Whenever i type normally it comes out in capitals, like this - THIS IS REALLY ANNOYING!!

    When I want to type in lower case, I have to hold down the "shift" key, like I'm doing now!! I can't see anything the matter with the "caps lock" key - it's not stuck down or anything obvious. Someone suggested removing the key as there may be a problem with the spring, but I'm not very technical minded, so I will probably make it worse

    Subhan'Allah no matter what I try, it doesn't work. :(

    Any suggestions insha'Allah? Or should I take it to be repaired?

    :jkk: in advance :)

    below the caps lock button, their will be a button with the arrow point 'up'. press that, that should remove the caps.

    if not, what os you using.

      If you have Windows XP, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, Accessibility, On-Screen Keyboard. Click on the Caps Lock key on that and it will turn it off.

      Put something underneath the kye and pull the key, then you can see what is wrong with your key-board. It is not much techy, my colleague's toddler has removed few keys from her keyboard. :)

      Hope it helps

        No, that didn't work, I'm afraid. :( It only works if i keep it pressed down because that's what I've been doing, but it's a real pain. I really need to turn off the "caps lock" somehow.

        I'm using Windows Vista, by the way.

        :jkk: for trying to help, much appreciated.:)

        I got as far as "Accessories", but there was no choice for "Accessibility" or "On-Screen Keyboard". :(

        I may have to try removing the key soon, if there isn't a simple solution!!

        Never mind, thanks very much for trying, I really appreciate it!! :)

            Well, I removed the key and pressed the "rubbery knob-type thingy" (technical term!), but it didn't make any difference. :(

            Off to the repair shop, me thinks :(

            Thanks again, Love&Peace! :)

                    Kudos on your lateral thinking, problem solving and all-round Google consultation!!

                    Seriously though, many thanks for all your help, I owe you one. Typing was becoming a real chore holding down the "shift" key all the time. :)

                              I think he is using normal keyboard, he used on-screen keyboard once just for turning off Caps lock. It is so annoying to use on-screen keyboard continuously.
