M-Text Box Caps Lock Always on

Weird problem and it's driving me crazy and none of the CAD guys in my office have any ideas...

This morning my computer, well AutoCAD ADT 2004, decided that everytime I opened an existing M-Text box or created a new one, that my computer's caps lock would come on. It will not turn off, I press caps lock and it blinks, coming back on. Once I close the text box, the caps lock will turn off. To type lowercase letters, I must hold the caps lock button down.

Does anyone have any ideas what this is, why, or how to stop it?

Thanks

What is RC in M-Text editor window area? As of yesterday, AutoCAPS was not turned on, however, I do not know how to turn it on/off and the ADT help menu tells what it is, but not how to turn the function on or off. Can you elaborate?

RC = right-click

I don't 04 install to check; this is coming from memory and 07 has AutoCAPS
(but it does NOT turn on the CAPSLOCK light on my computer. Sorry it this
does not help.

Sadly, I do have 2004 installed, and AutoCAPS does turn the caps lock light on and off on my computer. I did not even know that option was there [but I did know what RC meant]. I have learned something new today, so I guess I can go home now. ;-)

I got it fixed--I'm happy now, I'm not prepared to go postal on my computer anymore.

Thanks for all your help.
