Using home computer how do i keep my number lock on if i want to turn off then turn on my computer the next day?

While the computer is booting you should get a prompt to press a key to enter system setup or bios. Once you are in the bios setup, look for a setting called boot up num lock. This should be set to on. Then every time you boot your machine it will have the num lock on.

Keeps locking up no matter what i do.i have a 8gb com with 1tb memory new system with windows 7

It locks up because you have a bad program running in the background. Boot in Safe Mode and disable all of them then boot normally and activate one at the time till it locks again. Uninstall the bad program.

98 a6 alarm system keeps going off in middle of night, i have disconnected horn in boot for system but lights are still flashing. what is the easiesrt way to disconnect them from the alarm system

There will be water in the door microswitches, for the central locking.

This caused the alarms to activate when locked.

remove door panels on both front doors, you will see a little electrical switch near the door lock. remove and check for water ingress.

Locked password

If your os is XP, power on your computer, at the same time keep pressing F11 until your system boots to the menu that let's you choose to boot in safe mode. Boot to safe mood, go to control panel, users, select administrator and then change password. Once complete, reboot your system as normal and your new password should work now.
