x240: No CAPS LOCK indicator; most Fn hotkeys don't work

2014-10-09, 22:07 PM

When I push CAPS LOCK, I don't see the CAPS LOCK indicator on the screen.

Also, of the Fn hotkeys, only the mute, volume up/dn, and brightness up/dn work - the others don't.

Refreshed hotkeys driver.

When I go to "On Screen Display" tab in screen Advaned Settings, I see: Enable on-screen display checkbox; Appearance box, with color selections and fadeout time.  I don't see below it checkboxes for Caps Lock and Num Lock.

Win 8.1.
