Caps Lock display

2012-04-21, 14:09 PM

Hello,

 

I am quite bugged by the Caps Lock onscreen display, since I cannot find a way to only turn off the capslock display without turning off all displays.

This display drops my FPS from about 70 to 40 when I'm playing video games which is bugging me a lot.

But I would like to keep my other displays like soundlevel and screen brightness.

And yes, I know that it is possible to keep the capslock display for only 3 seconds when turning it on too, but I want it to be not displayed at all. I have a green light on my keyboard which is good for me.

So is it possible to completely turn off the capslock display without turning off the other displays?

 

Henkert.

Two options:

 

1. Rename the exe (in "C:\Program Files\Lenovo\HOTKEY") to some other name, so it can't be launched.

2. Have a .bat file to kill it after startup.  (taskkill)

Right click on desktop --> Screen Resolution --> Advanced Settings --> uncheck "Enable on-screen display".

Then you'll also need to do this if your system has bluetooth: http://blog.cmbc.be/2011/06/hp-notebook-fix-caps-lock-notification.html

Thanks it works.

Do you also know how to prevent my computer from starting this .exe every time I start my computer?

Because now I will need to stop the process every time when I reboot my computer.
