Acer Aspire laptop caps lock notification stopped working

March 2, 2012 at 10:09:43
Specs: Windows 7, i5
Any external keyboard works with Cap lock notification.
But built in keyboard for Acer Aspire does not show the Cap Lock notification.
Did for the first 4 months of use.
Acer wants me to back all data up and then restore all factory defaults. Cannot be done. Use the computer 6 + days a week.

It is a small problem just live with it.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

Why can't it be done on the 7th day? You should be maintaining backups all the time anyway.

From your user name it sounds like you may be using that laptop for business. All the more reason to maintain backups.

All computers break eventually. Some can get stolen or have other misfortunes.

Hi Taxman, please clarify - is the caps lock (CL) working or not on the built-in keyboard.

This sounds more like a hardware (keyboard) failure than a system default problem.

If CL is not working, Google may be your friend in such matters. Could something like these help:-

Maybe there is a windows equivalent of this:-

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

No answers submitted are on point.

Acer cannot and will not fix this item.

They blame malware, antivirus ssoftware and a full moon for their design problem.

So why can't you backup and restore to factory state?

Have you run AV and malware programs? If so, which ones?

Hope you have solved the problem by now. If not just enter msconfig in 'start search' box then select start up tab, then make sure 'Launch Manager' is ticked and this will solve the problem .
