why does my game minimize when i press caps?

Specs: Windows 7
to start, this message is all in lower case because this will minimize if i press caps lock. anyway, when i press caps lock, whatever i'm doing minimizes. that includes games i play. so, basically, if i go into sims 3 (the game i play most), then create a sim, when i want to name him/her, i can only make it all caps or all lower case (depending on which one i was on when i started the game) because if i press caps, the game minimizes. which also means, my biographies for sims look stupid, my sims' names look stupid, and generally, i'm not happy (i would have put "not" in caps, but i couldn't, as it would minimize. do you see my problem). please, anyone, can you tell me why it's happening, and how to stop it (if you can). oh, i use a windows 7 dell inspiron laptop, bought about a week and a day ago. not buying a new one.

Since this happens outside of Sims, it is a setting, or driver error. Try uninstalling keyboard in device manager and restarting. It should reload the driver correctly. If you still have trouble and this is a brand new machine, bring it back for repair/service under warranty. Post back results and details for more help.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
