MY caps lock key quit working - Help.  The shift key works but makes a 'click' sound from the CPU speaker.  I've looked at the HC Accessable options but don't see where I may have toggled something accendtly.  I've looked at BIOS set-up at boot-up but again don't see anything simple enough for me and nothing that specifies 'caps lock key'.  I'm running a 233 pentium with windows 95 and problem and 'click' exists in all programs and even at the windows desktop.  I check my e-mail daily so will be looking for a hint or help - THANKS

Try swapping the keyboard to see if it is a physical problem with the key itself.  Also check the settings in control panel to make sure the regional settings and keyboard layout are correct.
