    Enable NumLock on Fast-Startup

    Hello all,

    The issue I am currently having is enabling NumLock before the logon, I have modified the corresponding registry key (Find attached my screenshot below) and that works perfectly fine when restarting my PC, however I have fast-startup (Screenshot also below) enabled and if I shutdown my PC and then boot it up again, NumLock is disabled by default. I have made numerous searches and can't seem to find any information in regards to Fast-startup or any registry keys linked to it and I don't particularly want to disable Fast-startup. Just to clarify, NumLock is always enabled before logon when booting up my PC and Fast-startup is disabled, however with Fast-startup enabled, NumLock is only enabled when restarting my computer.

    Does anyone have any information in relation to this or possibly a solution?
    Thanks in advance!

    Have you checked your BIOS settings?

    Usually it's something that is configured in there

    Yes, sorry I neglected to mention the BIOS is relatively limited and there doesn't appear to be any option related to NumLock.

    This is the fix which just worked for me:


    Turn off fast start-up (if not already off)
    Run REGEDIT and go to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard
    Change the value of InitialKeyboardIndicators to 2147483650
    Reboot & turn on fast start up (if you want it)
