How to disable the FUNCTION of caps lock?


Senior Member
A week ago I spilled some water inside my laptop keyboard. At the beginning I couldn't type at all, but now the only problem I have is whenever I click the "n" or "b" keys the caps lock turns on (but the letters appear). Clicking on the actual caps lock key doesn't work.

I think the solution wouldn't be to map the caps lock key, but to completely disable its function (as if caps lock function doesn't exists in the system). How can I do it?

I'm running Windows 7 Enterprise, and my laptop is HP Pavilion dv9750

Thanks in advance!

Don't think you're going to find a software solution to what is quite certainly a hardware problem. If the problem is a serious one to you then your best bet is to remove the keyboard, give it a good long soak and agitate in luke warm soapy water, rinse it well and gently dry it for 48 hours. If that fails then it's time for a new keyboard.
