I bought my G74SX-BBK8 a few months back and I realize that there is an indicator next to the caps lock indicator. I have no idea how to activate it or what it is for. If someone could fill me in, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

It is an indicator for NumLock state. When it is lit, NumLock is ON. G74SX systems do not have a NumLock key. WIth BIOS version 201, the NumLock state is OFF, so the indicator will not be lit. The keypad numbers match the number keys on the top row of the keyboard.

BIOS versions 202 and 203 correct the keypad number keys so they are true keypad number keys that are typically used in key binding shortcuts for games. The NumLock state is always ON, so the NumLock LED is always lit. A utility called "NumLocker" is used by some to switch the NumLock state on G74SX systems.
