    NumLock Extinguishes

    For a while now my Num Lock has been turning itself off. Seems to be connected to switching programs, but I haven't been able to identify a clear pattern. I'm assuming it's some Windows thing.

    all help appreciated. TIA Michael

    Hi
    Try changing the BIOS setting to NumLock ON.

    Re: NumLock Extinguishes STILL

    OK - this is SO wierd. My numlock is on. goes on automatically at boot up - BIOS is set to ON. But, when I maximize Word or Money, it goes off. BUT, it comes back on again when I minimize it! if i turn it back on, then it stays on until something else makes it turn off.

    This is very crazy. Is Bill out to get me???!!???
