Jamal,

Do you have a numlock key to toggle it on/off with?

As stated earlier, if you turn numlock on in the bios, it will always be on after you boot the machine.

Thank you Brink and AddRAMfor the help,

· Sure, I do have numlock key to toggle
· Is this kind of setting (to have the Num LK ON) should be done at the BIOS level or Windows level?

I do it in the bios, if not you have to keep turning it on when you boot the machine. Is there a light on your keyboard telling you when it`s on. I prefer it on because I`m always using the numbers.

Thanks

In which case anyone on this WORLD needs it to be OFF?

I’ll see if my BIOS have this option!

Otherwise, I need to go back to Windows to set this feature! Which is not working!

Hi AddRAM,

I managed to access the BIOS and switch it from over there and it worked fine.

Please, have a look on the attached screenshot
