    G75 Numlock Auto On

    Hi Guys,

    As of Friday I am now a proud owner of a G75VW.

    One thing that bugs me at the moment is that the dedicated numlock key is not automatically coming on when I boot up the system. I have barely used it yet but I think I can see it becoming annoying as I use the number pad alot.

    Does anyone know how to change it so the numlock key is activated on startup?

    Sorry if this has already been answered. I did a search and nothing helpful came up.

    Just got the G75 as well a week ago.

    It is quite an incredible machine.

    However, I too am looking for the solution to this issue. It may be a bios setting, but I do not know how to access bios quite yet, as in which key to press during boot.

    If you Log Out (rather than shut down) with Numlock ON, does it then stay on when you restart?

    Im not sure about that I'll have to try it.

    I was logging in on it just before and I do know that I had to turn num lock on to sign in and then once again when the system had booted up to the desktop.

    Ok so I have confirmed that having num lock on when logging off sticks it to your profile and it will be automatically on when you log back in.

    I then tested shutting it down and seeing what happened. After rebooting and coming back to the log in screen num lock is once again off. But after log in it is back on again.

    So it seems to be a slight fix for it.

    Its a shame I cant have it always on regardless.

    If anyone finds out a way please let me know

    You'll need to edit the registry to enable Num Lock at the Logon Screen (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/154529).

    If that fails, see http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...9-81e0c5e5d6a2.
