    Cursor and NumLock

    Hi Folks:

    My work has just updated me to Win7 on the laptop I use and no one can seem to figure out why the NumLock goes off and the cursor reverts to its default every time I turn the machine on.

    Sheesh - Win 7 still has me baffled - how am I going to cope with 8?

    Any suggestions about where to look to get these things permanently set would be most welcome.
    TIA,
    ~marilyn

    If you have access, look for the numlock setting in the BIOS.

    If you are running on a domain the IT folks may be pushing a policy which sets a default environment every time you login.
