dell c521 keyboard has no cap lock indicator

Is there a small piece of software that will indicate when the caps are on i.e sound or pic on screen. Running Win 7 and everything is just fine other then this nickle /dime feature. Tried dell site , can't run Win 7 on unit.... their nuts. I have an old Dell 280 and it works like a charm.

The unit C521, is brand new so keyboard is worth using. (old unsold stock) Thanks.

you have to ask yourself why would a Co. like Dell save a few cents on a keyboard. Sure the unit is a low end but geee , the unit is completely made in China

I agree it's a really annoying lack of feature, esp. on notebooks.
