Today my Caps Lock key stopped working regularly. The notification light on the keyboard still glows on and off when I click the key.

But letters do not capitalize. I even turned on toggle keys, and it plays a sound each time I press caps lock.

But the outcome is still the same, no capitalization in letters.

Actually upon investigating, I think this may be a windows problem itself. I was messing around in Razer Synapse and it was registering my caps lock presses on the keyboard when setting up macros.

I tested the keyboard on a laptop and the caps lock key works perfectly fine. So it seems to be a windows problem overall.
And I'm not to sure on the virus part, I have Bitdefender and I don't ever download malicious files.
Very odd :unsure:

It seems when I press alt + caps lock letters capitalize. But that's not how things are suppose to be. And I actually looked at that forum post before and nothing there listed worked.

reinstall windows clean. first, download all the other drivers you need and those versions and save them off so after the new windows is installed, you can install your chipset drivers first, then video and audio and you should be good
