display caps lock on screen

This question has suggested answer(s)

My dell wireless keyboard does not have indicators for caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock.  The documenation says I can download something from the support.dell website that will display these key states on the monitor, but I can't find anything to do this.  Can someone point me to the download?

Thanks.

  • what dell make / model are you using?

  • Thanks for responding.

    I found caps lock light from tek911.  It does what I need for caps lock.  Num lock and scroll lock are less important.  Would like to see what the dell documentation was referring to, but this is no longer at the top of my list of things to sort out.

  • i am having same problem any solution?

  • Not sure which is the part number:  D P/N 0M756C,  or L P/N 820-001438.

     

  • I cannot find any software for this keyboard. All I can find is a reference to the driver which is built into the operating system?

  • part number

  • No separate software disk was provided.  The sheet explaining how to install the keyboard ("Setting up Your Cordless Mouse, Keyboard, and USB Receiver", document number of 620-000958) has this note: "For advanced users: go to support.dell.com if you want to download a driver to display Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock status on your screen".

     

     

  • Windows 7 I know

    OKAY.  AFTER 3 KEYBOARDS FROM DELL and a lot of research  SEEMS LIKE ONE OF THE TECHS COULD HAVE TOLD ME TO GO TO;

    CONTROL PANEL

    EASE OF ACCESS

    MAKE KEYBOARD EASIER TO USE

    TOGGLE KEY - to get a tone when the caps button is pressed

    YOUR WELCOME CAUSE I JUST GOT RID OF YOUR HEADACHE IF YOUR ARE USING WINDOWS 7 FOR SURE AND HAVE A WIRELESS KEYBOARD

  • Found info so question withdrawn. Thanks.

    I HOPE MY POST WAS HELPFUL!

    Yes it was. I am still looking for the updated driver that will display caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock in the task bar that was mentioned on the info sheet.  Just started my search on the dell site, so thanks for getting that off to a good start.

  • I have the same problem. Dell installed a driver but this just gives a lock symbol on the task bar and is no substitute for the traditional light. They are sending me out a new keyboard and mouse with the built in light.
