Disable num lock


Deskop or Laptop seems to be a contradiction >????

The num lock (number or numeric lock) can become annoying if you tend to accidentally hit the num lock key on your laptop and turn it on or off.
Disabling the num lock completely involves editing the system registry.
Before performing such edits, always save and back up your computer information in case you make a mistake, as the system registry controls many aspects of your computer's operation.
Once you have disabled the num lock on your laptop, you must edit the system registry again to re-enable that function.

Close all windows and programs that are running on your computer.
Press the "Windows" key and the "R" key simultaneously to open the "Run" dialog box.

Type "regedit" without the quotation marks, then press "Enter."
Click the "+" symbol next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then select the "+" symbol next to "Control Panel."
Click on "Keyboard."
Double-click "IntitialKeyboardIndicators."
Enter "0" (the number zero) in the "Value Data" field to disable the num lock after logon, or enter "1" (the number one) to disable the num lock entirely.
Click "OK," then close the registry by clicking the "X" in the upper right corner of the registry window.
Restart your computer.
To re-enable num lock, follow the same process, but change the "Value Data" to "2."

Num lock


If you use the number pad frequently during your daily computer usage, you may want to have the "Num Lock" key enabled when the computer starts up.
You can enable Num Lock automatically in two different ways: one involves modifying a value in the registry and the other requires you to create a small script in Notepad.
Activate Num Lock Through the Registry
Enter the registry and navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\." Double-click on the value labeled "IntitialKeyboardIndicators," which has a value of 0,1 or 2.
Change the value to "2" to turn Num Lock on after logon, "0" to turn Num Lock off after logon and "1" to disable Num Lock.
Create a Num Lock Script
Configure a script that runs to automatically change the Num Lock state.
Depending on where you place the script, you can activate the script for a single user or all users on the computer. Open Notepad and paste the following code
"set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.SendKeys "{NUMLOCK}"
Save the file as "numlock.vbs," including the quotes to change the notepad file to a script.
Paste the file in the directory "Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" to enable Num Lock for all users by default.
For a single user, copy it to their startup folder instead of All Users.
Enter the BIOS
Enter your computer's BIOS before Windows boots up to change the integrated Num Lock settings.
Depending on your motherboard manufacturer, different key combinations allow you to access the BIOS.
Common keys include "F1," "F2," "Del," "ESC" or "F10."
Consult your computer's documentation for specifics.
Navigate through the basic or advanced options until you find a section dedicated to enable or disable Num Lock on boot.
Enable in Linux
Linux is an alternate operating system.
While the BIOS method may work for Linux, you can also change the process through the options if using KDE Linux.
Navigate to "Control Panel" and click "Peripherals." Select "Keyboard" and select the option "Turn on" under the heading labeled "NumLock on KDE Startup."

How do I fix my computer moniter?the screen is black


When you power up then after 12 seconds check the num lock led status on key board press num lock key then if num lock led is on and off then your cpu is working fine.
For that make sure vga adapter from monitor is connecxted to cpu is properly.Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then you can see some menu enter in "Enable vga mode " then go to display property and change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and check.
But if num lock led is constant then then you need to open cpu cabinet cover.
Then reconnect ram memory .Try it in different ram slot.Make sure motherboard is not ground with cabinet.REmove pci or other card if any.
Then check.
Pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then connect again.
Also reconnect processor and it's fan then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Numbers appear w7hen i type certain words 7how do i solve t7his


Hi,

You probably have the Num Lock on. The letters affected by the Num Lock are u, i, o,j,k,k,l,m.

The Num Lock should be located at the top right of the keyboard and is usually in blue letters although with some keyboards its lettered white. Hit the Num Lock key and that should resolve the issue for you.


Regards.

Website wont let me login from my computer but it lets me log in through my phone


Carefully check the typing of your username and password. Make sure the caps lock and num lock keys are not on. You might want to open a text editor and type into the window. Are the characters displaying properly? If not, and the num lock and cap lock keys are not enabled, try re-booting your computer. Sometimes the keyboard driver becomes corrupt and reloading solves the problem.
