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."

How to enable the NUM LOCK key for the logon screen


The status of the NUM LOCK key is specific for each user, and it is disabled by default. If you want the NUM LOCK key enabled for use before a user presses CTRL+ALT+DEL to log on (the logon desktop), you need to edit the registry. To enable NUM LOCK for the Logon desktop (shown when no user is logged on), use the steps below:
  • Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following location:
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard
  • Double-click the value InitialKeyboardIndicators
  • Set the value-data from 0 to 2
  • Close Regedit
To undo the above, change the InitialKeyboardIndicators value back to 0

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."

Hi. My HP keyboard has function symbols which do various things, i.e. open and close the CD/DVD player, for some reason they nolonger work. Could it be that they have been turned OFF ? I don't know how to...


To disable or enable the Fn-functions, try locating them in BIOS using this guide.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=dk&lc=da&dlc=da&docname=c02035108

Otherwise, try hitting these key-combos, pressing the keys down exactly at once:
Dell = Fn + F4
Compaq = Fn + ScrLk
Lenovo = FN + Num Lock
IBM Thinkpad - Shift + Scroll Lock Num

Others:
Fn + F11
Ctrl + F11
Fn + Num Lock
Fn + Shift + Num Lock

Typing numbers instead of letters


Your keyboard has "extra" keys:
* print-screen / system-request
* scroll-lock
* pause / break
* num lock

Press that "num lock" key.
For a laptop keyboard, you may have to hold down the 'FN' key,
at the same time that you press "num lock", to enable/disable this function.

Num Lock key must be off. I can't log in using my 4 digit code. How do I turn on the Num Lock key? It is not marked.


It is one of the function keys, it will have a keypad symbol on it.
On my Toshiba it is the F11 key.
Try the Fn key + F11 key to enable the numbers, press the combination of key again to turn off Num Lock
