No Caps lock indicator (x121e) after installing windows 8

2012-11-10, 9:03 AM

I've installed ver5 of the thinkvantage software update but it doesn't show any driveres to install (other than the finger print scaniner)

 

I've tried installing the HotKeys software but it gave me a warning about compatability, I went ahead and installed it but it doesn't seem to have done much, I can't figure out how to open it up (if it needs configuration or anything) still getting used to windows 8 so maybe i'm missing something.

 

Any suggestions gratefully recieved,

Many thanks,

Graeme.

I also have this problem on x220 and additionally, none of the fn hotkeys seem to work.

 

I have not tried installing the Windows 7 hotkeys utility. Based on the above message, I assume it won't work.

 

Has anyone got the hotkeys and caps lock / num lock display indicator working in Windows 8?

My function keys seem fine, I'm not sure if they were before, I update the hotkeys to the windows 8 version but the x121e wasn't listed as a supported and it hasn't fixed the caps/num lock issue.
