    The caps lock on my desktop has started acting up.
    The first time i change from caps to lower case or vice versa, it changes but then won't change back.
    The screen padlock indicator changes but the letters do not.
    I have tried holding the shift key and typing but this doesn't work either.
    Then i'll be typing and it will randomly change from one to the other without touching the caps lock or shift key.
    I am using a wireless key board and have renewed the batteries.

    I had some strange typings with a wireless keyboard and mouse set until I changed the USB port the receiver was plugged into.

    Buy a new keyboard, and try not to spill tea on the new one.

    If you ever do, rinse it thoroughly in fresh warm water, and after draining and drying, there is a fair chance it will work.

    Thanks for the replies.
    The computer keyboard and mouse are only 6 weeks old and definitely haven't had anything spilled on them.
    I have swapped the port that the wireless receiver is plugged in to.
    Will get hold of a wired keyboard and try that
