How can I get a Caps Lock indicator to show on my Aspire E1 571?

I can't see any indicator to show if Caps Lock or Number Lock is on. There are no LEDs on the keyboard, the function key brings up a notification on screen but not caps or num lock.

 

Thanks

    When I got my Acer Aspire it had Win 8 installed, which I down graded to Win 7 64 bit, as it was to do with my MCSA Course work.
    I originally had the same issue couldn't see when Caps-Lock was on/off. after searching the web including Acer direct,I found this Driver Dritek it's direct from Acer so should be clear of viruses and the like, though this version is newer than the one I have (as below), so if it donesn't work, you can click on the other link and install that..!

    This is the driver packaged I have: LaunchManager_Dritek_5.1.15_W7x86W7x64_A

    Both drivers are free to use..! Once installed it should look like this..

    I use this software. It places on the taskbar either a green checkmark when caps is on or a red X when caps is

    off. It will also beep when a certain number of letters are typed in when CAPS is on. Very simple

    program and virus free. I have it on all 6 of my units and it simply works great.

     I wanted to know the answer and found this solution when trawlling though the official aer site:

     

     

    This article only applies to: Windows 8

     

    When pressing the Num Lock or Caps Lock on your keyboard, there is no notification to indicate the status. The on-screen indicators for Num Lock and Caps Lock are not available in Windows 8.

     

    Instead, it is possible to activate a beep signal when the key is pressed:

     

    1. Press theWindows () key to open the Start screen.. Type Control and select Control Panel.
    2. In the Control Panel, selectEase of Access.
    3. SelectChange how your keyboard works.
    4. EnableTurn on Toggle Keys.
    5. Click or tapOK to save the changes.

    I have an Aspire E5-411...  I like many others am experiencing the same issue.  A "sound" notification would not help me.  I went to the Windows 8.1 help site and saw someone ask the very same question about his Acer a few months ago.  The Rep. at the Windows site told him that that feature was locked and he would have to contact his OEM (in this case Acer) how this feature could be unlocked.  Is this true?  I need to be able to see a caps lock notification. 

  • ltop13dvltop13dv Posts: 7Member

    I discovered this on my Aspire E5-411.  One "can" get a visual notification via a Acer app- Acer quick access.  just turn on the notification keys option....  tried to get a screen shot but its not very "quick" today.  If you hit the cap lock key a capitol A inside a lock pops up on the screen (for only a few seconds but big enough that you can see it. 

     

    This is in Windows 8.1 but it gives credence to the statement i made earlier that one has to find how the OEM, acer, set it up....

    I have an Aspire E5 531 (Windows 7) after trying all the suggestions I could find, I ended up opening Acer's eRecovery Management. I clicked 'Restore' on the left-hand side and then clicked on 'Reinstall Drivers and Applications'. After clicking 'Contents', I reinstalled Acer Launch Manager (Launch Manager v7). Once it finished and I restarted my laptop the Caps Lock Indicator was working again. I hope this helps. Smiley Happy

    Try a free program called Keyboard LEDs, I'm using it on my V3-772G WIN 8.1, no problems.

    I also have this issue with my third party keyboard and done a lot of research on Google and found a way to notify when my Caps Lock is pressed which is an awesome thing to me and for you also.

    The way to get notify is that you can get a beep sound when you pressed Caps Lock but do note that this trick only works on windows operating systems like Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10.

    So, here is that article I found in my research to make settings in your Windows OS to get notify when you pressed Caps Lock: Enable Caps Lock Indicator or Notification in Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10
