Keyboard Problem - CAPS LOCK Delay

By NICS ·
On my Compaq Deskpro the CAPS Lock & NUM lock keys do not respond for several seconds after you press them. I have checked the Keyboard settings, swapped keyboards, cleaned the connection etc. Any Ideas?

Might be the driver needs to be reinstalled. I've also seen this if another process if hanging and eating up CPU time.

I have seen this too. The only good answer I have found is to get a new keyboard.

I would try this:
Boot up your computer, go into Windows Startup menu and choose "Command prompt only" and then see how your keyboard works there. If everything is OK, then it is the keyboard driver. If this is the case, boot into safe mode, removekeyboard drivers, remove any other ghost drivers you may find and reboot the computer.
If in Command Prompt Only you get the same results, it maybe the motherboard.

Hi,

One other suggestion I can offer you besides the other answers you have already received, is to make sure that the keyboard plug is fully seated in the keyboard connector. If you have a loose connection some of the keys will not work.

Goodluck!
