Hello,

I am having a strange problem. I have a laptop and a wireless keyboard. When I hit the Caps Lock button on my laptop keyboard it freezes all the other keys and I am unable to undo the Caps Lock or type anything. However, with my external keyboard I can turn off the Caps Lock and everything goes back to normal. Any clue what could be going on here?

Thanks

My guess is that this is an OS issue where it's getting confused between the built-in keyboard and the wireless keyboard. This could be an issue with driver used for the wireless keyboard, but it's not a hardware issue.

Thanks for the response. I uninstalled and re-installed the drivers as you suggested with no result. I ended up using SharpKeys to disable the Caps Lock and this seems to have resolved the problem.
