Num Lock

  fitshase 23:48 21 May 2003

For some reason, when I boot up the computer, Num Lock is not switched on.

It always used to switch on when I switched the machine on. It doens't do it anymore.

Doe anyone know where the setting is to switch it back on?

disable num lock in the bios.its normally set that way so you can navigate the bios set up screens using 2 4 6 & 8

I took your advice and looked in the BIOS. That setting was enabled.

I exited and let it boot up. The num lock was on until Windows XP loaded and then went off!

I went back into the BIOS and disabled the Boot up Num Lock and now it doesn't boot up with the num lock on but when Windows XP loads, the num lock is turned on!

Is there a setting in Windows XP that enables this?

Just had a look in keyboard properties/advanced, the only setting there that I can find is, "Enable keyboard to bring win. out of standby". Not sure if this will be anything to do with it.

My previous keyboard num. light would stay on even when PC was turned off, with new one the light remains on, but only when PC is powered up. J.
