How do I set numlock to be on at start up?

\015 When I turn on my laptop I have to manualy turn on the numlock to log in. Can I set the numlock to be on at startup?\015

Answers :

Almost every computer does this in the BIOS

\015\012To access the BIOS Setup on your system, the system must be off, and not in sleep/suspend or hibernate mode. Press the power button and then immediately press and hold down the F2 key. When the POST (Power On Self Test) finishes, the BIOS Setup screen will appear.

I believe you have the Phoneix BIOS. Use the arrow keys to navigate and to the desired option, the one Concerning Numlock and Disable it. There are different ways to do this, but flipping through the options is usually done with the + / - or PgUp / PgDn keys.

When you get the value you want, navigate to the exit menu and make sure you save the changes you made. You should be good to go.

Hi there
you need to restart the PC and enter the bios, this is usually F2 on start-up, have a look through the bios and set the numlock to on at start-up.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

I recently replaced my heat fan and during the process of making sure I put the fan in correctly I turned the computer on and off several times. I did have to take the fan out and turn it around, the cpu was dislodged because of the thermal paste. Now that I have a monitor hooked up to the computer all I get is a black screen. The fan and computer are running but that is it. Help! How do I get rid of the black screen or did something happen to my cpu?
