Caps lock & Scroll Lock LEDs not working but Num Lock is working fine

I'm using an HP Pavilion dv6000 Notebook series.

 

I noticed that my Caps Lock LED is not working but its FUNCTION is working fine.. same goes with Scroll Lock. Here's the weird part.. when I press Num Lock ( function key + scroll lock ) the LED turns on!

 

I already tried a system recovery, it didn't solve the issue. Is there something wrong with my BIOS?

 

Any help from you guys will be highly appreciated.. thanks!

Sometimes electrical components needs to have all power sources removed and reintroduced to work properly.  Try performing a hard reset first, if it doesn't work then try updating your BIOS.  If neither works...It's pretty much dead and not worth fixing.

 

 

To Perform A Hard Reset

 

  • Shut down the computer by going to the Start menu and selecting shut down. (If you have no display, hold the power button down for  5 seconds)
  • Disconnect the AC Adapter from the notebook.
  • Remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook.  There will be a switch/button to eject the battery.
  • Wait at least 1 minute with all power sources disconnected.
  • Re-insert the battery and reconnect the AC Adapter and then attempt to power on the notebook.

Sorry but it didn't work. I still have to guess everytime I start typing if my Caps is on or off.

I am facing the same problem.

 

I did the hard reset too. But no use.

 

If any HP support can be extended to solve this issue, well & good.

Exatly same problem with me!!! It`s a dv-6000 series.

 

I noticed that when I push caps lock on my laptop, the function works but the light does not illuminate.

 

And it`s incredible the number of pepople that have the same problem... and more incredible is the fact that HP never show a solution to it!!!
