Hi, I've been having some problems with my keyboard. For some reason, the caps-lock key on my laptop has reversed, but only for the letter 'a'. So if caps lock is on it types a lower case 'a', and if it is off it types an upper case 'A'. This is pretty ANnoying, becAuse it leAds to me typing like this unless I press the cAps lock key every time I need to type the letter a.

Does anybody have any idea why this might have happened, and if it can be fixed? I'm on a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7, if that helps. Thanks.

Could be a problem with the keyboard causing shift to be entered along with the A, making it come up as capitalized. Might try cleaning it, but it sounds like something you need to take it to a repair shop for unless you're comfortable dismantling the laptop and poking around in the keyboard to see if there's a short.
