What is this PC?

For keyboard issues both laptop and desktop I pull out a good USB keyboard to test if this is a software issue. Do that first before attempting fixes as you don't want to break your OS over a hardware issue.

No USB keyboard? Try the on screen keyboard for a test run.

Caps Lock

Hi, PC expert here (so ive been told)

Have you tried turning it on and off again or pulling the key off and putting it back on, works for me every time when i get my Doritos crumbs in there, easy to scoop out when the key is removed, im guessing that is the same issue with you.
