Well, when XP was new a few people complained their machine was typing
by itself and that was due to the fact that it had a built in microphone
the user hadn't thought about. It was doing speech to text on
I think this unlikely in your case' if only because the caps lock key
get to working backwards, but who knows.
Also I used to have some software that upset the caps lock key, don't
recall now what it was but obviously it had a defect somewhere. You
might try disabling as much auto run stuff as you cam and see what
happens. Check Google for the make and model with some words like
"Keyboard", "Shift" etc... someone else might be seeing the same and
have found a fix.
