Num Lock goes off when DOS window comes up
Posted on 1997-11-24
I have 2 machines - a P120 with the original W95 and a new PII with
W95B. With both of them, sometimes when the DOS window comes up the NumLock goes off. It seems to happen more often with the old system than the new system, but it happens with both. It doesn't seem to follow any patternn. I've watched the keyboard light as the DOS window comes up, and on the times it goes off, it goes off the same second the DOS box comes up. If I had to estimate, I'd say that it happens 30% of the time on the old system and 10% of the time on the new one. Dell Tech support said that it shouldn't happen. Has anyone heard of this problem or know how to fix it? Thanks!
