Depending on the keyboard, there may be a physical key, etc that will do this without you having to do it via Windows. My Toshiba has one right above the keypad itself.

There is often a BIOS setting that determines the initial setting of the NumLock key (on or off) when you boot.  Have you looked through the BIOS options for your laptop yet?

Please state your BIOS version and I'll look up where it is. Every BIOS should in theory have it.

You could also run something like this in your startup folder...

set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.SendKeys "{NUMLOCK}"
