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.
