How default Num Lock to on in Windows Vista when BIOS has no setting... HP laptop dv9225

Have a new HP laptop which has no settings in the BIOS for changing NUM LOCK setting.
Vista changed things I guess so that Num Lock is always off by default.

Any idea on how to turn this on at bootup automaitcally? Not a big deal, but be nice to get some things more easily working on horrid and slow Vista.

Thank you
Peter
