Here is some code:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
IF GetKeyState(VK_CAPITAL)=0 THEN showmessage('Caps lock is Off');//1=ON
IF GetKeyState(VK_NUMLOCK)=0 THEN showmessage('Num lock is Off');
IF GetKeyState(VK_SCROLL)=0 THEN showmessage('Scroll lock is Off');
//we send key accelerators
keybd_event(VK_CAPITAL,0,0,0);
keybd_event(VK_CAPITAL,0,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
keybd_event(VK_NUMLOCK,0,0,0);
keybd_event(VK_NUMLOCK,0,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
keybd_event(VK_SCROLL,0,0,0);
keybd_event(VK_SCROLL,0,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
end;

I don't seem to get the code to work properly in Win95, but under Win NT, it works great, do you have a clue why this doesn't work.
