Right click on My Computer

Select Properties

Click on the Advanced tab.

Click on Environment Variables

In the System Variables section, click on New...

The variable to be added is called NUMLOCK, and the value is ON


Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Keyboard
Open InitialKeyboardIndicators
Change the value to one of the following numbers
0 - All Keys off
1 - Caps Lock on
2 - Num Lock on
4 - Scroll Lock on
For multiple keys, add their values:
3 - Caps Lock and Num Lock on
5 - Caps Lock and Scroll Lock on
6 - Num Lock and Scroll Lock on
7 - Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock on
Log off and back on again


I think some bios' have this capability of enabling num lock.

There is usually a setting in the BIOS to have num lock on at startup.
