Is there a way to tell Windows 95 to turn on the NUMLOCK key after booting?  

When I boot, the NUMLOCK always goes OFF until I turn it on manually.  A small nuicance.  I will be very grateful for an answer to this.

Thanks.

There is a BIOS setting for this.

1. Go to your bios (press DEL when booting)
2. BIOS Features Setup (for AMI BIOS, should be something simmilar for all the others)
3. Boot Up Numlock status (change from OFF to ON)
4. Save and exit setup
That's it, easy isn't it...

Feel free to ask if you need any other help..

It worked!  Yee HA!!!!  :-)

Considering that I have been wanting this information for years, I suppose a grade of A is tempting.  However, I found the instructions provided by Damir somewhat confusing, so I am giving the answer a B, for "good."

I am not sure what specific suggestions I might have for making the instructions more clear, except to say this:  when writing step-by-step instructions, I try to imagine that I am the one RECEIVING the instructions.  I am sure Damir did that, but....

I know that when I write instructions, I become impatient.  It is hard for me to take time for polishing and revising instructions.  I want to just zap them out.  It takes me a long time to write instructions that are easy for others to follow.

That said, I am VERY grateful to finally know how to do this.

THANK YOU!

Sorry, you're right, I thought this was so simple that you must have seen this option before, but could not link it to your problem, my step by step answer was more like a notice for you to recall.

Except for that, I didn't know what type of BIOS you have, so was expecting a further info from you (different BIOS - different procedure), this one is just a hint for Award BIOS. But it looks like I was right, you were aware of this option, but have never used it before, so you needed just a tip to remeber and use it.

Please could you specify which additional information would you like in theese instructions (this would help me a lot in future!).

Regards,

Damir

Damir,

Actually, I was not aware that setup includes a toggle for setting NUMLOCK on.  My only suggestion is that you continue to work hard on being as clear as you can.  I can see that you are doing that already.

I saw on your profile that you are in Zagreb.  Is English your first language?

By the way, I am quite thrilled to be in communication with someone in Croatia.  I am very sorry about all the sadness from the war there.

Would you be willing to exchange e-mail addresses?  Mine is danallen@ultranet.com

Dan, (suppose that's your name..)

I'll be glad to exchange email addresses with you. Mine are dp@cibalia.gkvk.hr or alternative damir.pavusin@usa.net. I'll be glad to receive email from you.

No, my native language is Croatian, I have learned English in school, and contrary to the general belief there are many people from Croatia speaking English. Well, I have to admit that grammar is not my better side, but..

War was wery bad, it pushed us back many years. But we're trying to remove all the consequences of the war and get closer to the EU standards as fast as possible (well not all of them, (polution, crime etc. is much lesser in Croatia than in EU). Well, there are many old people in the goverment and they're thinking the old way which is slowing down the proccess, but already, there's many promessing young people, that have both the perspective and the will.

Well, already beeing to serious.. Anyway, I'll be glad to receive email from you, I'll send you this note by email too so you can add addresses to your addressbook.

Regards,

Damir

P.S. If you ever need any help with computer, please don't hesitate.
