How to activate NumLock as a default? My job requires that I work with numbers the majority of the time so I need to keep the NumLock active. However, each time I log off, the NumLock automatically deactivates. Need to learn how to keep it activate all of the time.

Just set up my brand new hp laptop ,password e.c.t. But now it won't except my password ,so now I can't open it at all.


Check to make sure that you haven't accidentally enabled either the numlock or CapsLock keys before trying to enter your password. (or they were enabled when you first entered the password!) Passwords are case sensitive. Some keyboards have alternative number entry defaults when the numlock key is active, so when you go to type letters, if the numlock key is active, you get numbers instead.

You may be able to reset the password from the HP recovery partition. Check your manual on how to enter the recovery partition. If you can get to another PC, here are some tips for recovering the password on HP laptops.... forgot my password for my hp laptop

Jumbled keyboard numbers


Are you typing on your laptop and notice the text has become illegible? What should be letters, have become numbers or symbols. This odd behavior can probably be explained be peering a little closer at your keyboard. Those little numbers on the keys. These numbers and symbols normally become active when you hold down the function key, usually labeled as the "FN" key. The "FN" key is similar to the Shift key, activating a second function assigned to a key. It can become active seemingly on it's own because a key is locked in the on position.

Before performing numerous key combinations, try the simple thing of lightly tapping the "FN" or "Num Lock" 5 to 6 times. There may be a small particle of something logged under the key that you can loosen, move, or crush down. Do not bang the keys, just press normally. Next focus on the "Numlock" key which usually located with the "Print Screen" and "Pause" key on the top right of your keyboard. Press the "Numlock" key, then press a scrambled key to see if it's normal. Older model laptops may require you hold down at the same time, the "Ctrl-Shift-Numlock" keys. Newer models may require holding down the "Shift" key and pressing the "Numlock" key. Turn off the Function key with the following combinations. Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Numlock", Hold down the "FN" key and hit the "Scroll" key and Hold down at the same time "Fn+F12+Num Lock"

Lenovo p580 numlock off


What options have you tried ??

Number Lock on IBM Laptop Computers b> Laptop computers have the advantage being portable and self-contained, but among their drawbacks is a keyboard without a separate number keypad. While for most applications number keypads are unnecessary, they can be useful for data entry. Laptops sometimes provide a number keypad by giving certain keys double duty, allowing them to enter numbers rather than letters when a "Number Lock" setting is turned on. Number Lock, however, can get turned on accidentally, or enabled by an operating system by default, which can really mess up your typing. If typing "M" ends up displaying a "0" on your screen, Number Lock is probably the problem.

Try to locate the function key. On a T-series ThinkPad, it's in the lower left hand corner. It should be labeled "Fn," and the lettering may be blue, green or red instead of white. If your laptop lacks a "Fn" key, use the "Shift" key for Step 3 below instead. Locate the key labeled with "NmLk". On a T-series ThinkPad it shares a key with "ScrLk" which sits on the very top row between the "PrtSc" and "Pause" keys. On other IBM laptops, the "NmLk" key might share a key with "Delete." While holding down the "Fn" key or the "Shift" key, depending on your model, press the "NmLk" key. This should turn off Number Lock and restore your keyboard to its usual state. Number Lock on an IBM laptop is a "toggle" setting. You can turn Number Lock on by following the same steps.
also Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated. This activation is indicated by the key being lit up. If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock. The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard

Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor. In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\
Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.

Some key on the keyboard are typing numbers instead of letters what should i do please?


Hi,

You might have accidentally activated the "Numlock" key on your keyboard. Just press the Numlock and it should type in letters instead of numbers.

If press just the Numlock key will not work, try the combination which is CTRL and Numlock simultaneously.

Hope this helps.

NUM Lock


I solved this on a toughbook. The numlock was activating while windows started even with the regkey set to have it off.
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/154529/en-us)

All I had to do was restarting the PC waiting for windows to activate the numlock again during the shutdown process and then hitting the numlock once before windows was done.

Next time the Toughbook started the Numlock kept off!
