    Num Lock is always Off while Startup


    Hi Guys,

    I have win 8.1.1 Installed. And I use my PIN to login to my Laptop. But every time i need to manually turn on the NUM LOCK. Is there a settings or registry hack to keep it on While start-up ?

    Hello Ariftwister,

    Double check your BIOS/UEFI settings to see if there may be one to enable Num Lock.

    If not, then you could see if the method in the tutorial below to enable Num Lock at startup may help.

    Toggle Keys at Startup

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    The method of changing the default setting to "2" worked for me. I think we were all scared to change the big long number - or, in my case, assumed that the leading "2" would do the trick. Once I changed it to a simple "2" it's working fine in 8.1 PRO 64 bit (all current maint applied) on a three year old Sony VAIO laptop.
    MANY THANKS!
