T530 - Caps Lock Indicator Not Working

2013-07-03, 7:02 AM

Sporting Windows XP (32-bit) on my T530 and as of recently, Caps Lock indicator has stopped working. Mute, Volume, Screen Brightness indicators are working as per usual, only CL indicator is not working anymore. Tried upgrading Lenovo Hotkey Features, rebooted but still no go. Also, I can't remember where do I find settings for Caps Lock indicator? IIRC, it should be somewhere in Control Panel/Display/Settings/Advanced/OSD, but it disappeared. I can only enable/disable OSD, adjust fade-out time and background/foreground color(s). Options for Caps Lock indicator are missing. Anyone experiencing similar problems?

T530: i7-3630QM, 16GB DDR3-1600, NVS 5400M, 2TB SSD, 250GB mSATA, 750GB 7200RPM, HD+ 1600x900, Win7 Pro 64-bit L430: i3-2370M, 8GB DDR3-1600, HD 3000, 750GB 7200RPM, HD 1366 x 768, Win7 Home 64-bit

I had the same problem. The newest hotkeys integration package is gevu60ew.exe and it has problems on XP. Here is how I fixed it:


Download gevu60ew.exe from the Lenovo website.

Install gevu60ew.exe, don't reboot.

Run the installation again from C:\Drivers\Hotkey\setup.exe.

Choose the uninstall option and uninstall everything you see.


Go to your program files directory and delete the folder "%ProgramFiles%/Lenovo/HOTKEY".


Download and install gevu43ww.exe, don't install the patch.


I found the file gevu43ww.exe here (but if you've used System Update it's probably already saved on your computer, do a search for it):






Should be fixed, no promises but it worked for me. :)
