    You probably need to enable it in the BIOS. Entering the BIOS is usually done by holding down the DEL or F2 key immediately after power on. The NUMLOCK option is within one of the sub-menus.

    @enigma101 is correct, look in your BIOS. BIOSes vary but on mine the entry for enabling NumLock is within the section POST behaviour.

    When you have that set in the BIOS you can, if it is useful in your situation, consider the other suggestions.
