Solved NUMLOCK turned on in registry won't stay on

February 16, 2011 at 08:22:33
Specs: Windows XP
the registry key for numlock is 2, that is numlock on, but when computer comes up, numlock is off again
I've tried to change it with a "numlock.vbs" Skript in my startup, but that doesn't work either
is there another program/setting which turns if off again, where can I look?

✔ Best Answer
Have you set the correct registry key for numlock?
[HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard]
"InitialKeyboardIndicators"="2"

The type of InitialKeyboardIndicators is REGSZ

[EDIT]
If you need to enable NumLock at the login screen, you have to set InitialKeyboardIndicators also at this point in the registry:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard]
"InitialKeyboardIndicators"="2"
