    Boot turns Caps Lock on


    On every boot, my caps lock gets turned on. Is that normal ?

    Hi, whs!

    I wouldn't think so ... I mean, at least, I'm not seeing it.

    I've always taken that to be a bios setting like NumLock.

    Look in the bios, there may be a setting there that controls capslock key behaviour.

    If there isnt, locate this key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard

    In the right pane, locate the entry called InitialkeyBoardIndicators, set it to 0 if it isnt.

    Thanks for the answer. I doubt the BIOS is at fault because it does not do it when I boot into /7 or Vista. But I will explore the Regkey setting.

    Update: Regkey is at Zero.
