G470 - Caps Lock Indicator missing

Hello, guys.


The indicator of the caps lock on the screen is missing, same with the num lock.


I know that G470 does not have on screen display utility, but it used to show at least one little message in the right corner when caps lock and num lock were activated/deactivated.


The volume and brightness indicator it's still working fine.


Anyone knows how to fix it?? I've tried to go to Screen Resolution > Advanced Settings, but there is no tab named "On Screen Display", witch is correct, since there is no software.


One mor question: is there a way to install the on screen display utility on the G470?


Thanks, and sorry for any english mistakes, i'm from Brazil.

Re: G470 - Caps Lock Indicator missing

hi brunobera,


Welcome to the Lenovo Community.


It's weird that when doing Fn+ Brightness/Volume Up/Down, the on-screen animation works but not with the capslock/numlock as these are in one single feature. If they used to work before, have you tried uninstalling and re-installing the Lenovo Energy Management software? This is the utility that makes the hotkeys & indicators work.


Try this link:

Lenovo Energy Management v6.0.2.8 17 - Windows 7 32&64bit - 13.6MB



Let us know if you get any errors.

Re: G470 - Caps Lock Indicator missing

Actually there is a different osd driver for the caps and num lock. However i dont see any specific drivers for that in the driver section. However if you want you could use a third party software for that if the solution suggested by neokenchi

Does not work. Refer below as the osd driver supplied by lenovo is mostly from quanta


Ishaan Ideapad Y560(i3 330m), Hp Elitebook 8460p!(i5-2520M) Hp Pavilion n208tx(i5-4200u)
