Number Lock?

Just a quick question. Number lock is turned on automatically when I boot my computer. It is a setting in bios. When I had ME it stayed on after Windows loaded up. Now, with XP it goes off after the splash screen comes up, and stays off until I push the button. Is there anyway to keep this from happening? :confused:

This has happened ever since WindowsNT was first released, for some reason windowsNT (includes w2k & XP) seem to override the BIOS settings for the numberlock. But not to fear, once your loggin in under your account, just hit numberlock, then next time you bootup.. you'll notice the light is on, goes off while NT loads, then once your logged in, it will come back again (which is when you need it).

NT saves the setting somewhere.

BTW, when I say NT, I again mean NT,W2k,XP

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
