    My capslock button is reversed. When it shows it on with green light, my letters are all lower case, and when I turn it off, its all capitals. When I do a restart, the capslock button turns green before it even starts up.

    I tried surfing around the net for some fixes with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

    Resetting the PRAM has worked for others with this problem.

    Resetting PRAM and NVRAM

    1. Shut down the computer.
    2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    3. Turn on the computer.
    4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
    5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    6. Release the keys.

    That's because NVRAM/PRAM has nothing to do with your problem. Try powering off for a few seconds, then power back on, as opposed to a restart. See if that clears it. If not, you may need to visit an Apple Genius Bar.
