I am used to use the numbers on the numberblock, but everytime I log on to NT (4.0), the NumLock is deactivated.
The BIOS setting "Bootup NumLook status" is set to on and works fine for the DOS boot.
Is there a way to activate it?

PS: I am using the german keyboard layout.

In the most case this is enable in the BIOS from the PC.
It must look like the following:
"Enable numlook on boot"
Look at these settings.
