Windows 7: Caps Lock key won't turn off and I can't login! Pls help

Caps Lock key won't turn off and I can't login! Pls help

I've had my laptop for 2 or 3 years and have never had this issue. After powering down yesterday, when turning it on, the Caps Lock key is engaged and no matter what I do (quick press, sustained press of button) it won't turn off and therefore my windows password isn't working (no caps). I've tried searching for a solution but everything indicates a 'stuck' key can be turned off via the control panel but I can't even get there b/c I can't login.

I've powered down two full times now to no avail.

Please help - it is probably something stupid but I don't know where else to look

try typing your password while keeping the Shift key pressed. That should counter the effect of the Caps Lock
