Windows 10 December 2017 update, Caps lock, Num Lock Keyboard LED Lights not working FIX

So you got the Windows 10 update of December 2017 and now your keyboard num lock, caps lock and scroll lock lights (LED) no longer work.

Check windows version as this fix worked for me on this version

open a command prompt by typing ‘cmd’ into the search bar then enter


you should see something like

IF your version is even close this should work fine.

Open Device Manager, and goto ‘Universal Serial Bus controllers’. Start removing ‘USB Root Hub’ devices until your keyboard stops working.

Give it a few seconds, then restart your computer.

All Done. Enjoy


Creativerse Release on Linux Wine

As Creativerse is now out of early access and in full release a quick update.

To install Creativerse on Linux using Wine I am using Linux Mint 18 (Sarah) but any recent Ubuntu distro should work fine.

1) Install Wine. Preferably Wine Staging
2) Install corefonts using winetricks winetricks corefonts
3) Download and install windows Steam
4) Totally ignore steam not showing the store and go to your library
5) Install Creativerse
6) Play Creativerse.

The release shows much better performance then previous R versions. Using AMD R7-360 I can set all graphics options to max with silky smooth frame rates.

For fixing steam Store and best performance settings see my previous post HERE should you want a fully functional Steam in Linux using Wine.

Please do post any questions, success or fails in the comments.


Undervolt explained, Overclocking voltage.

Undervolting, or undervolt means using a lower voltage during over clocking.


All modern IC use a fixed voltage to do their work. If they need to do more work they draw more current at the same volts.

1.2v and no work = 1.2v
1.2v and working hard = 1.2v

Each of the above assumes infinite current.

The over clocking voltage dilemma starts.

A CPU is rated at a meridian voltage based around a minimum and maximum safe voltage.

As reactive loads they do not conform to R=V/I in the sense of a simple resistance. The apparent resistance is reactive to need, not voltage. CPU’s are programmed to know the voltage for a given frequency given infinite current.

More, CPU IC’s are not voltage regulators. Raise the voltage and the same frequency CPU will just dissipate, in heat, the excess. Your CPU will get hot. Try it. Up your voltage but not your clocks.

So, here we are. What is the correct voltage?

Specification of the CPU put it clearly at 4.2Ghz 1.4250v

Manufacture error?

3.9Ghz 1.3850v +_ 10% = 4.2Ghz ~1.4040v
