Ubuntu :: When Laptop Freezes / It Shows Caps Lock And Scroll Lock Lights Blinking

Oct 31, 2010

I am having a very annoying problem with my laptop.I am experiencing many freezes.When my laptop freezes, it shows the caps lock and scroll lock lights blinking.At first I thought it was a problem with flash (here is original thread: URL... )In the original thread, I thought the freeze's were being caused by the flashplayer, but it apparently isn't the case.The last time I experienced the freeze, I was playing around with the compiz desktop effects.

Ubuntu :: Freeze - Blinking Caps And Scroll Lock - Acpi

Oct 20, 2010

Sony Vaio EB 16 FG - running ubuntu 10.10 froze while resuming from dimmed screen with blinking scroll lock and caps log LED. The scenario was this :- I just downloaded the acpi using synaptic package manager. Then installed laptop mode tool using synaptic. cat /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode 0

Means its not yet enabled. But decided to remove it .(read drive spin up and down is not good for HDD) Had left the laptop for some time , it dimmed screen . When I resumed it froze. No mouse movement.only blinking caps and scroll. Just wondering if acpi is the culprit,since haven't seen this behaviour before and it happened after removing laptop mode tools

When I tried to turn it on some of the lights came on and the caps lock and num lock started flashing. Since then I have not been able to get it to work correctly.It once seemed to turn on but died again after the login window.I tried to use my live cd but the same thing happened. It started loading once, but then shut down again. Every other time it stayed dead minus the lights

Ubuntu :: Load Live CD / Caps Lock/scroll Lock Flash?

May 27, 2010

I have just burned the latest CD using infraRecorder, as per the instructions on this site, however when I boot from this CD, it spends about 5 minutes moving the red balls across my screen, then all of the sudden it just freezes, and my caps and scroll lock lights start to blink. I've had a look in the forums already but there's nothing about this happening on Boot of the live CD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Randomly Freezes And Caps Lock Light Blinking

Feb 11, 2010

I installed Linux yesterday alongside windows vista. Everything went very smooth. I restarted the computer multiple times without issue, and the menu would pop up asking me which os to load. Everything was good. But today I attempted to boot up my computer and nothing happens. The screen just stay black. The lights come on on the laptop, but nothing else. Either I try to boot it and it goes on then off quickly, or it just sits there, still on, with a black screen. I don't know if this is related, but when I was messing around with ubuntu yesterday after I installed it, it would randomly freeze and my caps lock light kept blinking on and off. I was forced to restart when this happened and then everything would be ok.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Laptop Freezes And Caps Lock Flashes When Unplugged

Dec 7, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.10 and it seems everytime I unplug my laptop it freezes and the caps lock flashes. This happens pretty much every time. I installed fedora 14 had no problem with unplugging the charger but I didn't like it and couldn't get WiFi working right. So I installed ubuntu 10.10 hoping it would be gone and I have the same problem again. I have a AMD Athlon II Dual-Core Processor M300
(32-bit)
3GB DDR2 memory
320GB HDD (5400rpm)

Ubuntu :: Caps/scroll Lock Indicators?

May 18, 2011

I wonder is it possible to make capslock and/or scroll lock indicators blink when you have unread message or so. Like in nofication area (like when envelope in notification area becomes blue).

General :: Change The Caps Lock Key To Control And Still Keep The On/off Nature Of Caps Lock?

Oct 13, 2010

Can I change the Caps Lock key to Control and still keep the on/off nature of Caps Lock? I've checked into using xmodmap and seem to have hit a dead end. Many people want to swap them, but they also want to swap the way they work. I'd rather keep my new Control key as an on/off switch for Control.

Ubuntu Installation :: Crashes On Install Flashing Caps And Scroll Lock

Nov 25, 2010

Have a HP Proliant DL380 which had Ubuntu installed. Have not used it for about 6 months but wanted to resurrect the machine. Switched it on and it would not boot. Went through the usual boot load then would freeze with a flashing scroll and caps lock. Thought I would just re install and recreate the partions but now when I try to install Ubuntu 9 from an offical disc I get the same error. I have attached a screen shot (well photo).

Fedora :: Screen Goes Black - Mouse Frozen - Caps-lock Blinking

Dec 14, 2009

I keep starting up Fedora and I'm not able to get far (although it's not always at the same time) before my screen will go black, except it shows the mouse/cursor - but it's frozen, and thhen the caps-lock light starts blinking and I can't do anything or get it to recover. Sometimes it happens after 30 seconds, sometimes 40+ seconds and sometimes within 15 or so seconds.

How do I stop this and diagnose this?

I've tried, in the boot-startup to choose an older kernel version, butt the same thing occurs!

I have:
Fedora 11
Kernel: 2.6.29.6-217.2.16.fc11 i586
Asus EEE PC 1002HA

One other thing, it does always seem to happen after I've turned on wireless. And I've been using F11 for months now with no issue.

Ubuntu :: Volume Controls Not Working After Enabling Num Lock Or Caps Lock?

May 2, 2010

There is a very strange problem I've been having. When I enable either Caps Lock or Num Lock the media controls on my keyboard cease to work. I have Googled this one to death but found nothing. This problem existed in Xubuntu 9.10 and now still exists in Xubuntu 10.04. The keyboard I use is a Logitech Elite Keyboard. I would love to be able to use the Caps Lock and Num Lock without the worry that I am disabling the media controls

CentOS 5 :: Kernel OOPS - Scroll Lock Keys Start Blinking

Apr 25, 2009

I'm trying to install CentOS 5.3 on a VMWare virtual machine running VMWareServe 1.0.4 build-56528. I have 8 virtual machines that are running some older kernel (RH FedoraCore 4) without any trouble. My system has an AMD Athlon XP 1800 processor and has 1G RAM. Every time during the installation after choosing skip media (I have already checked that the media is OK) I get a kernel OOPS and the capslock and scroll lock keys start blinking. My first guess was that this could be a ACPI issue, so I have disabled ACPI using the acpi=no boot option. The problem persists with the acpi=no option set. During the boot install process, I have seen some messages like this one

ACPI Exception (processor_core-xxxx): AE_NOT_FOUND, Processor Device is not present [xxxxxxxxx]

I have searched for this issue and found a RedHat Bug 435653 that reports this same issue, but this report is somewhat old, so i think that this issue as already been fixed and reflected to upstream. I have tried also to install using the text mode installation, but the same problem. To further isolate this problem, i have avoided the hardware detection and this was the first time that i have overcome the first screen (test media screen), as i have choosen with the success the language and the keybord layout. After choosing the beyboard layout, the kernel OOPS shows up again. On the screen 4 (debug screen) I don't see any relevant messages.

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Freezes With Caps Light Blinking

Mar 4, 2011

i have been using it since a friend suggested to use it a month or so ago. I have knowledge of computers so I am not ignorant of everything (I say this for the linux pros in case this is a simple solution, and I have checked many forums before actually posting this question with no luck) and have tried several options. My laptop freezes at random times with the caps lock light blinking which seems a little strange. the only correlation I can make to this problem is that every time I use only wifi without the ethernet cable plugged in it will freeze. I have read a few forums that say it could be a bug in the wireless card drivers and some suggest it could also be graphic card drivers but it seems to only happen when wifi is enabled.I am using an ASUS G73 series with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 graphics card, 8GB DDR3-1066 RAM, Atheros AR9285 802.11n Wireless LAN adapter, and an Intel Core i7-720QM processor (1.6GHz/2.8GHz Turbo Mode, 6MB L3 cache). I am also running Ubuntu 10.10 off of a 320 GB seagate Momentus and windows 7 off the stock 500 GB Seagate Momentus.

Ubuntu :: Caps Lock Indicator On Keyboard Not Functioning

Jul 17, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04. The Caps lock indicator on my keyboard is not working (always off). The Num lock indicator works fine. I have the same problem with other keyboards. The other keyboards work with Windows & DOS. This isn't a show-stopper, but I'd like to get it corrected as it's problematic when typing in passwords, etc. that have hidden fields.

Ubuntu :: Disable Caps Lock With Xmodmap In Natty?

Apr 29, 2011

I just upgraded machine to natty, after which the xmodmap configuration remapping capslock stopped working (as in not doing anything at all). Running xmodmap manually (-e "clear Lock") doesn't have any visible effect either. I haven't tried doing this on another machine (I'm only close to one machine running ubuntu and reinstalling seems rather overkill), but the same config worked before the upgrade, and is working on another machine running arch.

Is anyone else having these issues and, if so, has anybody found a solution? The line of interest is, simply, "clear Lock".
