Seem to have a problem when booting up Windows XP Pro. My Num Lock has been disabled... and therefore need to press the num lock key in oredr to finish off inputting my password. This acn be very frustrating and i'm always forgetting to press the num lock key. Does anyone no how to change a setting that will keep my num lock on
I've just been experimenting with this and here is the outcome on my PC. With Num Lock turned on in the BIOS it comes on initially but goes off just before the login screen then comes on again just after logging in. There is however a Registry tweek that will put Num Lock on before the login screen irespective of whether it's turned ON or OFF in the BIOS.
Open the Registry editor and navigate to HKEY_USERS, DEFAULT, Control Panel, Keyboard, right-click InitialKeyboardIndicators and change the 0 to 2. Don't forget to back up the Registry before making any changes.
Graham ®, khaki_avenger wants the Num Lock on at the login screen not after Windows has loaded. VoG's link is good as it provides a method of doing this for anyone who may not be comfortable editing the Registry but it just changes the same key that I highlighted.
