    I have a tx2000 and somehow (I don't know what I did) when I press caps lock the led on the left of the key does not light blue. Instead I see an indication on the bottom right of the screen "caps lock: on" or "caps lock: off". Same occurs with the nums lock. Can someone explain how I revert back to the normal indication with the blue LEDs


    Thanks

    Have you installed the hp quicklaunch buttons drivers?
    Which OS are you running?(the preinstalled one, xp, vista, 7, Linux?)

    Yes, I have installed the hp quicklaunch buttons drivers

    I am running Vista SP2. The hard disk crashed so I replaced the HD and installed Vista using the original HP restore DVD. After the restore the windows update installed SP2.

    The LEDs were working fine before the HD crash and OS restore.

    thanks for the help

    I've worked on several thousand tx units so far, I've yet to see one with this issue. I have seen on the HP dv6000, and dv9000's that the caps lock LED had burned out, a sign of a larger issue on the system board. However, from the sounds of things, there may just be some sort of software issue at work. Has your CMOS ever been reset? IE given you a bad checksum error during boot up? If the system board has lost it's DMI settings it could think its another type of unit.
