stuck in caps lock mode...

Don't know if it's a software or hardware  problem. 
 
Whenever I start to do a lot of typing, my computer get stuck in caps lock mode and will not revert back to lower case... even thought I keep switching back and forth it gets 'stuck'.   Also, if I highlight a phrase to cut, it will stay in highlighted mode and not release me... have to reboot it order to get it to stop..
 
Have a Dim 4600c, only 6 months old..  Have Word perfect pre-installed...
Happens in all types of typing programs..  word pad, ie6, mail...
 
Not sure where the bug is or how to stop it...with out having to reboot..
 
I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling Word perfect  but did not solve the problem...
 
 
Any suggestions??
 
Tks in advance..

Re: stuck in caps lock mode...

I experienced the same thing.  This would happen when my keyboard filter was accidentally turned on by holding the shift key down for several seconds.

Check help under "keyboard filter."  I don't remember what I did, but I made some changes to the way the keyboard filter works and have not had the problem recur.  Good luck!

Re: stuck in caps lock mode...

shift auto turns on when you click sfift more than 5 times in a row.
for egample when you are playing a game sift is fire and you click fire 5 times sfit will come on. it is a sticky key.
