How do you permanently disable numlock on a dell vostro laptop?
Posted on 2008-10-28
I have a set of dell vostro laptops that I work with on a daily basis. Our problem is this, everytime a user logs in the num lock may or may not come on. We want a permanent method to disable numlock such that it only comes on if the user specifically presses the numlock key. I have tried the registry keys in Windows to no avail. I have also changed the bios to always of. The first boot always works fine, its just when someone logs in if the computer goes to sleep or screen saver or locked, the numlock comes on. I have tried the following KB's 314879, 262625 and this reg key HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard
any advice would be appreciated.
