Dell Inspiron LED cycles on/off after Ctrl/CapsLock swap

Postby runbei » Tue Sep 23, 2008 8:36 pm

On my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1501), I configured a keyboard Control/Capslock swap using Control Center and now the CapsLock LED still turns on/off every time I hit the new "Control" key (former CapsLock). This is very annoying, as I use WordStar-style control-key combinations in OpenOffice. Any way to fix this irksome behavior?

Perhaps this is hardcoded in hardware?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
