    Well this is weird. I guess it wasn't fixed. It's only working intermittently.

    This is the problem I had on my main system.

    This is exactly how I fixed it:

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3...dows-10-a.html

    Go to the power options via settings
    Make sure the tickbox for "Turn on fast start-up (recommended)" is UNTICKED

    Then open up the registry (regedit) and go to
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard
    Change the value of InitialKeyboardIndicators to 2147483650

    I just want to add that you had the right number earlier (ie 2) but you had to add the 2 to the original number (2147483648+2=2147483650 decimal or 80000002 in hex.


    And that's it (I hope)

    Do you have to leave fast start-up turned off after the registry change? In the increased boot time I would get, I could hit the num lock key a hundred times!

    ***checking and rebooting****

    Edit: Aren't I the idiot. It appears it's no longer required. **tee-hee**

    Using the number 2 only in that Registry tweak worked for me IF I had left the NumLock on when I shut down or restarted.

    As I wrote in #2 you have just to put the value 2 in this place, and in another also for having numlock on in Windows.

    See Brink's tutorial here:
    Toggle Keys at Startup

    It has worked on every PC I have set up. No need to fiddle around with "Fast Startup", or should I say "I have never needed to change Fast StartUp" to get Numlock on at the login screen.

    I know. I tried that, and it didn't work. Disabling fastboot is what did it for me.
