Windows 7: Caps lock reversed

Caps lock reversed

I am having an issue with my Dell Optiplex 780 where the caps lock on the keyboard is reversed. The caps lock light shows on when it is off and vice versa. It is not a stuck shift key because I can type numbers.

Also Google says to hit ctrl+shift+caps lock to fix it, but that does not work. It is still reversed and it is driving my OCD crazy.

Plus all that came up on Google were this problem on a laptop. This is a desktop.

Does anybody know what else I could try since all the stuff listed on Google is incorrect?

Try another keyboard. You will find out if it's a keyboard or software issue.
