G780 Windows 7 and caps lock indicator

2014-02-21, 5:15 AM

This post is regarding the indicators that pop up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen when caps lock or num lock are turned on and off. Every other person I've found with this problem has been advised to go to Screen Resolution --> Advanced Settings --> Enable onscreen display. However, when I try to do this, I don't have a tab for enabling onscreen display, or a button, or any such thing.


(For ease, here's a screenshot: http://i655.photobucket.com/albums/uu272/Lentilshine/G780indicatorproblem_zps735b5936.png)


I didn't hugely mind the indicator, only it's started causing one of the games I run to tab out Every. Single. Time. which is getting fairly annoying, given it's a social game and I learned to type with caps lock and not the shift keys. I've had a look under regedit and KeyIndicator is set to 0.


Running Windows 7. Any help would be massively appreciated.

Solved! See the solution

hi lepsylentil,


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


Can you check under Control Panel ,    Add / Remove Programs and see if you have anything that says Caps OSD or OSD.

If yes, Uninstall that.


You can also try uninstalling Lenovo Energy Management from Add remove programs.


See if those will take out the Onscreen Capslock Display.
