    Problem is with intermittent changes of caP LOCK KEY (As it just occurred now)whilst typing this. iT OCCURS WITHOUT aNY CAPS LOCK OR SHIFT KEY aCTIVATION BY user. none of the SOLUTIONS WORKS. tried new keyboaRD AND DRIVERS CHANGE (NEW/old) BIOS and standard change through “Languages” in setup. Tried software for optimizing, tried various virus check & malware software and fixes and have mixed results. It works for a short time then returns back to the old problem. My is HP DV7 laptop but is obviously a lot of people on a lot of different PC’s have the same problem.

  2. well shakti if you are reading this then I guess you have either fixed the problem or are looking at the post from a different device.

    I had the exact same problem on my hp Pavilion, here are a few quick tips:

    To sign in, press the shift key while you type in your password. This puts the letters back to lower case. Then follow the steps above, “press shift key to turn off caps.” Problem solved and you can continue on your way.

    This issue on my almost new HP Pavilion (happened one week after I bought it) cost me hours of time, a few grey hairs and some frustration. That’s all in the past now.

  3. Follow the whole process given above.

  4. After installing Windows 10 I cannot log onto my hp pavilion. This because the caps lock is stuck and i can’t type in my password. I tried unplugging etc but no avail.
