Preferred Solution: number lock stays on when the computer is shutdown

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Recently(about 2 weeks ago), my computer started freezing. It happened 5 times already(one of them occurred as I was typing this post). I wasn't doing anything in particular, just using Firefox to browser the web.

3 of the freezings occurred while I was just browsing, 2 occurred while my computer was starting up. No sites in general either, out of the 3 times I froze, I was on different sites each time(all of them are "known safe ones" too like ign.com, wikipedia, etc).

After the latest freeze(during browsing), I restarted my computer only for my computer to freeze again after 3 seconds(screen stayed the same, it happened right after it showed me my memory test). Then I restarted my computer again and it froze before anything showed up(monitor did not detect anything so the monitor did not show anything).
Here's what I have done so far:

1. I used memtest86 and done 3 full tests, no errors on any tests.

2. Did anti-virus and anti-spyware scan on my computer(I used: Avast, Spybot, Adaware).

3. Checked Windows Event Viewer(unfortunately it didn't log anything).

Here's the last things I did to my computer before I noticed the freezings:
1. I downloaded and installed Secunia PSI.

2. I downloaded and installed the latest version of WinRAR and Quicktime player(recommendations from Secunia).

3. I also installed various security patches from microsoft update.

Besides that, nothing in particular.

On my new Netgear 7550 modem+router combination from AT&T, whenever I turn off the computers connected to it, for some reason, the lights stay on.

Specifically, the Ethernet 1 light connected through Ethernet on one computer and the Wireless light connected wirelessly to another computer stay on (solid green) even after both computers are shut down and off.

Is this normal behavior for this specific modem? Or what can I do to fix this?
 

Answer:Netgear 7550 Ethernet and Wireless Light Stays On After Computer Shutdown?

the wireless will stay on , i suspect, as all that is saying is that the wireless in the router is on and broadcasting

ethernet 1 light should go out - but pull the cable plug out and see if it goes out and then push back in and see if it comes on
then try the cable in one of the other 2-4 sockets

Whenever my laptop wakes up from sleep and shows the lock screen, I click and type in my PIN as normal. But on the lock screen at the top right, there's a Cortana box usually giving an example of what I can do, like 'tap and say remind me to water the plants when I get home'.

The problem is this box stays on the screen after the computer is unlocked, and displays semi-transparently in the top left over all other windows, with the only way to remove it is to double click, have a Cortana window display full screen and then close it.

I'd like to find a way of either fixing this or disabling Cortana from the lock screen altogether as I never use this feature. Any tips would be appreciated.

I am having problems with this computer shutting down, booting and even sometimes while surfing the internet. It locks up about 50% of the time shutting down, and locks up while booting maybe 25% of the time. Sometimes while on the internet a web page will just freeze and upon pressing cntrl/alt/delete once I get the message that Internet Explorer is not responding.
When I choose *End Task* it freezes the system and I have to hit the reset button on the case.

These problems started when I installed my MSI G4 MX440 card a few weeks back. I have updated to the newest drivers for the video card but that has not made any difference.

Should I reinstall Win98SE on top of itself to get the drivers and software back to normal or will that work?

My system is a 400 MHz Celeron, Super Micro P6SBA Mobo, 256MB Micron RAM, WD 80 GB HDD, MSI G4MX440 video card, Diamond Monster Sound MX 300 sound card.

I appreciate any help

Mike

Answer:Computer shutdown/boot lock up's

Have all available windows updates been done? If not I would try that first.

From my experience, re-installing 98 on top of itself will create many more problems than it will fix.

Probably just time for an FFR.

I was on my Y560 Model 0646 checking my email and the computer shut off on me.  I went to turn it back on and it does not turn on.  The caps lock and number lock light up.  Blue tooth, Battery, and Video status all light up above keyboard in status area.  None of the fans are going, and it does not sound like anything is running.  I tried removing the power and battery and pressing power button a few times.  Also tried to remove power and battery and holding down power and nothing.  It's almost like it freezes.  I can push the mute button and it lights up, but then cannot turn it off.  Please help.  Laptop just went out of warranty last month.

Answer:Y560 will not turn on. Caps Lock and Number lock light up but not fans or boot

I'm guessing it is because of the motherboard. Since it is out of warranty can a Y560 motherboard be purchased anywhere? Any ideas? Please help.

My Toshiba satellite c650d seems to have power...the on button is green. The screen is black, the numbers and caps lock lights are on and wont go off. The disk drive makes the usual booting up noise but that is all she does. Ive unplugged and removed the battery and that did nothing.

If, as it sounds, it is booting up but not ever displaying anything on the screen, check the cable between the motherboard and the screen. It might just be one of the connectors (at either end) has worked loose. With the computer well booted up, move the screen gently down to nearly closed. If you ever see anything on the screen then it could be the cable is faulty where it hinges.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hello guys,

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and I am having some issues.

First one is: When I click jpg, gif, or any image files that uses the photo viewer as a default viewer, photo viewer pops up twice, one with the file I selected and one with the collection screen. It only does this on the first view of a image file after reboot. Once it does this, it doesn't do it until I reboot.

Second one is: I use a PIN as my login password. The number lock on the log in screen doesn't work. I almost always have to press NUM Lock button in order to use the number key pad. I checked the BIOS setting and Num Lock is on.

I will be appreciate any help.

You've posted 2 different problems that should have been separate posts. I don't have a solution to the first but the second is probably because the keyboard driver has not yet loaded before getting logged in. I saw the same during setup of a new ASUS Notebook just yesterday that came with Win8.1. Disconcerting was the lack of a light or screen indication that the NumLk key had been pressed, just noticed the same is occurring on my Dell Inspiron 15R that has been Upgraded to Win10 although it is a rescued/rehabbed Notebook, it does have the light on the front edge of the case, just does not turn on.

Hello, I'm use to using the Fn key to enter numbers quickly.  With the T520, I cannot figure out what I need to press in conjunction with J to enter 1.  I don't want to use NmLk because I need to use the alpha too.  What am I missing? Thanks-

Answer:T520 - Quick number use without Number Lock

AFAIK, Fn+J=1, but NumLock has to be ON. That should not affect typing the letter "a" (alpha.) For real adding machine speed, consider a small, separate USB number pad. This one is top of the line: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834995516&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle...

Hi everyone.I have an acer 6930, running windows 7.I have a problem with the following; it starts with the volume word being displayed on screen permanently, along with this, the volume up & down control is disabled. When this is on screen the caps lock is locked on and the number lock is locked on so i can't use the numerical side of the keyboard. I've also noted that if I'm surfing the net, instead of a new page opening up on a tabbed page(so i just back space to the original entry) I get new tabs opening every time I click on something on the page.

Answer:volume / cap lock / number lock problem

If the numlock is lit and you can't use the numeric keypad, you have a keyboard problem. Numlock being lit means the keypad is active or enabled.Check your browser settings.

So this is what's happening, I just ordered a few case fans from Newegg. These are the fans I got, COUGAR CF-V12HP Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan with Pulse Width Modulation - Newegg.com

Now my problem is that when I shut down my PC everything seems to still be running, all fans are running, the LEDs on my one LED fan are still on, and my DVD drive bays still open and close. I can hear everything in the PC still moving like its fully on yet my monitor "goes to Sleep" and wont come back on until I reboot it. Which when I do reboot it shows the whole standard windows startup screens with the post screen and all.

I've never had this kind of problem before I installed the fans, normally if I shut it down everything would shut down, but it just seems like it don't want to. It does disconnected my other PCs from reading off the homegroup like its actually shut off.

I don't know why it's doing this, I have the two new fans plugged in through the connectors it came with that adapt it to get power from the PSU, don't know if that's the cause though. Just looking for some insight on how to make it actually shut off when I shut it down. Not having to go and hit the power switch on the PSU

Hi there. Recently upgraded to Windows 8.1. I have been experimenting with changing the Lock Screen. I know how to change it manually. The point is, I put the setting to 'Play slide show'. I even told the system to use a picture folder. Maybe I am misunderstanding. I was expecting the lock screen to be different each time. But no change. I even installed Lock Pic. But I noticed it's working with the actual windows settings. It just gives me a different choice of pictures. So what am I doing wrong?

Answer:Lock Screen stays the same.

Hello gallicbear,

In Windows 8 and 8.1 there are two "Lock" screens. One is set by the user that is displayed only when they are signed in. The other is the default Lock screen image that is displayed when there are no users signed in.

The lock screen slide show only works on your lock screen when you are still signed in, and not the default one.

Answer:Num Lock LED stays illuminated

Many new computers have settings in the BIOS that allow the computer to be turned on by an event; its usually called "Wake-On ..." and it could be for mouse, keyboard, modem, lan, etc activity. Check in the BIOS setup for such settings; they're usually found under Power Options.

Recently I bought a new mechanical keyboard to replace my old one. Everything was working fine but one day I bumped the CAPS lock and couldn't turn it off. After playing around I found that it toggled off when shift was pressed. So naturally I contacted the manufacturer's support and they gladly tried to help. after uninstalling the drivers and configuring software (it's a programmable keyboard) nothing worked. When plugged into another computer the CAPS lock worked fine, and when at the user log in screen on start up (before logging in) it works fine. Skipping ahead, today I plugged in my old keyboard and found the problem was also affecting this one as well. I assume it's something other than driver problems now. Does anyone know what the cause of this problem could be and how to fix it?

Answer:CAPS Lock Stays On Unless Shift is Pressed

According to Keyboard shortcuts for Windows, pressing the Win logo + s should toggle the caps lock on and off; you might try that. You can also open the "on-screen keyboard" and try to toggle the caps lock that way. Maybe one of those will get it out of the state that it is in.... although I've never seen such a state hang around after a reboot.

The problem which I am facing is that my laptop's capslock button blinks or sometimes it stays constantly on and due to this my touchpad stop working. This happens momentarily and then everything gets fine. This is  sometimes very annoying. Any solution(s) to this query of mine??  

Answer:Is it normal that my caps lock button always blinks or sometimes stays constantly on?

Hi avkaran,
Thanks for posting!
A blinking caps lock light can have several possibilities.  In some Vostro models it can indicate loose RAM, so if you can, try reseating the RAM modules.  If that's not resolving the issue, then try an external keyboard to see if the same condition exists.  If so, then try reseating the keyboard data cables which  may help. If not then it's possible that replacing the keyboard, memory, or system board may be required.
If your system is still under warranty, a call to Tech support to troubleshoot will help indicate what may be the problem.  If not, then either try these things yourself, or contact Out of Warranty services for a return to depot and repair, or you could contact a local computer repair shop.
You may want to post back and describe your progress so the experts here can respond.  Thanks.
Regards,Robert

Hi, I have HP Pro X2 410 G1 and when pushing the ON/OFF Button,it vibrates as it would be,and instead of turning on the display and displaying the HP logo and so on,it keeps the display black with no led (like it is when the tablet is turned off) and starts blinking white light on CAPS LOCK button,it blinks 1 time,after 3-4 second once more time,after 3-4 second once more time and continues doing so until I turn the tablet off. I turn it off by holding the ON/OFF button for several seconds,and it turns off as usually does when everything is ok (a light is blinking 1 time on the lower middle of the screen ribs and the power goes off) .So I think it actually turns on,but the screen is not showing anything and the system realizes that something is wrong and gives me alert with that blinking on CAPS LOCK button ... I have removed the touchscreen and using the tablet with its HP Pavillion x2 dock station as a notebook.The screen is moving, because the touchscreen must have been fastened to it, but I have removed the touchscreen and only the screen is left.there are times that it turns on normally,but for about 70-80% situations it gives the problem above PLEASE HELP ME TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM

I've been running Win 7 Ultimate for a few months. About a week or two ago, the numlock light has been remaining on after shutdown, which is most annoying. A net search has shown this to be a problem for many people, and there literally has been no valid
solution posted. And of course, once the system HAS been shut down, pressing numlock has no effect because there is no power to the keyboard controls. And yes, I can unplug the keyboard and plug it back in, and numlock stays off.
My desktop BIOS is current, all of the "on wake" bios events are disabled. There have been no BIOS setting changes made, and numlock is initially set to be off in the bios.
I have tried 2 different keyboards, both have the same issue. When I boot on my XP SP3 drive, and shutdown, I do not have this problem at all. For the first few months on Win 7, this was also not a problem.
The registry value for the initial display side is set to 2, so that windows turns numlock on when booted... and it *used* to turn off when the system was shutdown. By the way, I never "sleep" or "hibernate" the system. I have checked
the power settings section, and shutdown IS the choice.
Any suggestions? :)

Folks,I spent most of yesterday getting my sons PC set up with an upgrade from 98 to XP. It wasn't without problems getting started, but I seem to have pretty much everything done now, including updating/renewing drivers, etc...However, I discovered last night that when you shut down, Windows DOES appear to SHUTdown OK, but the machine DOESN'T POWER down... the case button has to be held in for a few seconds to completely turn off.(Turning on again doesn't produce the "scan check" gubbins, which does suggest that windows is closing cleanly)Unfortunately, as I was restarting after each installation, (i.e. not turming off), I can't identify which software installation may have triggered this problem.Can anyone advise?In case it's relevant, mobo is a Soltek 75-DRV4 with a Via chip and an athlon 1.3Gig.(I wont be able to check in on this until much later tonight, or possibly not until tomorrow morning. Very busy day today!)Thanks in anticipation.Regards,Simsy

I have a Bluetooth usb plugged in on my desktop. Ever since creators update it sometimes stays illuminated (blue) after shutdown. Is this an issue? Sometimes it goes off but other times it stays on. Often I reboot just to get rid off as rebooting seems to makes the led go out. It?s odd behaviour. My pc is always plugged on to a ups so maybe it still feels the power as such. But surely in shutdown the usb dongle should not be lit. No side effects at all, just an observation.

i think light is lit by software, but not sure.
anyone have any ideas on how to have the light turn off during Windows shutdown?
 

Answer:numlock light stays on after shutdown

maybe its your keyboard that might be defective. does it turn off when you unplug your computers power? maybe you need to take apart your keyboard and clean it? i think it could be any number of things? dont think its software problem because its on after computer is off.

i bought a this laptop 6 months back and it was all working perfectly with Windows 8.1 until I upgraded it to Windows 10. When i shut it down everything turns off except for the power light and it keeps on forever. In order to turn the light off i have to press and hold power button for around 6-7 seconds and then it turns off. i tried updating the bios with windows bios because Windows 10 BIOS is not available for my pc. Please help, i will be grateful.

Answer:Power light stays on after shutdown

Hi there @Khanobravo,Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that the power light is still on when you shutdown your system. I am happy to help. This may be due to the Fast startup option being enabled. See this page for how to toggle it.How to Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10 - tenforums.com Let me know if that works.

I have HP Pavilion 15 n003tx notebook. After I shutdown my laptop the power LED still stays on, It does not blink it just stays on. I have tried turning Fast Startup off as well, problem still persists. Kindly assist. 

Answer:Power LED light stays on even after shutdown

Hi, Try installing the latest IMEI driver directly from Intel as follows. Open Settings and select System.  Select Power and sleep, then click on Additional power settings - in the following window, click on 'Choose what the power button does' in the left hand pane. In the subsequent window, first click on 'Change settings that are currently unavailable' ( near the top of the Window ) and then remove the checkmark from the box against 'Turn on fast start-up (recommended)'.  Click the Save Settings button, then close any open windows and restart the notebook. When windows has reloaded, download the IMEI driver directly from Intel on the following link, unzip the package and run the installer. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26127/Intel-Management-Engine-Consumer-Driver-for-Intel-NU... When the installation has completed, restart the notebook. When the machine has reloaded, re-enable Fast Start-up and reboot the notebook once again - let Windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

I just reformatted and installed Vista Ultimate x86. Whenever I shutdown my lappy via the start menu or press the power to do so, vista appears to be shutting down as the open windows close, but then my screen goes black and the power light, wlan, and bluetooth lights remain on. Those indicate the laptop is still running and to completely turn it off I have to hard-shut it by pressing and holding the power button.
I have a ASUS Lmaborghini VX2S for reference.

I just purchase a z70-80 with Windows 10, and I installed VMware WorkStation with Ubuntu running inside it. The screen lock comes up after a few minutes even though I am running development tools in the VM. I went to display settings, and in Power and sleep and modified the screen turn off and sleep to 45 minutes. But that did not resolve the issue. I would like to have the screen up indefinately. What setting do I need to adjust please? I do not know if it is a sleep mode, or the screen saver, or something else. I hope I am describing the issue with the right words.

Just installed Windows 10 on my primary laptop and the lock screen is a solid blue (if I change my theme color, the lock screen changes too). However, I have Windows Spotlight turned on. I've tried setting a static picture or slideshow as the background. I also confirmed that the files needed for Windows Spotlight are indeed downloaded onto my computer. It just refuses to change.

It's worth noting that on my secondary computer with Windows Insider builds, I have, and have been having, the same problem. Any ideas as to how to fix it?

And blue is the accent color for that theme, correct?

After installing Windows 10 on my laptop my lock screen is experiencing the same problem as you, as well as in the desktop. In the desktop I found out that if I set a specific picture or slideshow and set the taskbar to detect color, the taskbar will switch colors to match the picture(s) as if they were displaying, but the pictures themselves don't actually appear on either the desktop or lockscreen.

If we are having an identical problem, that would mean that the pictures are still displaying, but the accent colors are taking priority over them, in a sense.

Heres the story... customer got bad viruses.. did clean up and removal of the infections and I noticed the laptop wasn't shutting down. (I cant confirm that this wasn't an issue before. I didn't notice it but doesn't mean it wasn't there) when you go to shut down the screen goes off but power on light stays on and fan stays on. Have to hold power button to shut it off

HP Model Pavilion 2000-2b29WM

Heres what I have done so far...

1. I did the refresh (the full format one) but still did it. I still have windows 8 didn't bother updating to 8.1 yet since that's what I had before I refreshed it
2. updated/flashed BIOS but didn't work. Reset BIOS to default
3. Turned off "Turn on fast startup (recommended)"
4. put in different HDD and loaded Windows 7 and when I went to shutdown it locks up at shutdown so still problem shutting down but screen stays on.
5. tried different RAM
6.Tried different power adapter.
7. tried holding SHIFT while shutting down
8. Resisted punching the laptop.

I don't know what else. I was confident that the viruses did it but maybe its a coincidence and its some hardware issue?? Thanks

My laptop has been doing this for a while, whenever I go to shut down my laptop from start menu the screen goes black but the fans stay on and the keyboard lights still glow (I have an Alienware with the glowing keyboard). Only when I hold down the manual switch does it shut down all the way.

This presents a bigger problem recently because when I install updates and then restart my computer, I must shut it down manually and on startup I must open in safe mode and then restore my computer to a point before I installed windows updates. (I am not completely sure that the fact I have to turn off the computer manually is the reason that my computer is telling me to restore to a point before I install updates, just to be clear.)

Thanks for the help.

Answer:Upon shutdown, only laptop screen goes black but stays on

Is this the original factory preinstall which most tech enthusiasts won't run, preferring to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to enjoy native Win7 performance?

Stick with the tools and methods given and you'll get and keep a perfect install.

In your case I'd first Run Built-In Diagnostics for Your Dell Computer | Dell US from it's partition to see if it will boot and run, give you a report on your hardware. If so then during the booted reinstall you'd want to leave the OEM Diagnostics partition but delete all others using the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7 to create and Format New.

Otherwise work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 starting with a Clean Boot, checking logs for repeat errors to resolve, utilitze System Resources to find solutions and Generate a System Health Report.

Hello,

I'm having a few troubles with my old (2004) Satellite P10 PSP10E-0SCM7-FR

One day it simply shut down (as if out of power, no BSOD) and the power button as well as the led for the WIFI and CD/DVD stay on.

Most of the time I cannot turn it back on as the power buton still is on. (Power button, WIFI and CD/DVD are on).

? I've tried to take the battery out and unplug the computer for at least 30mm
? I've tried to press the start button for a while (a minute) then unplug everyting (Power cord + battery) for at least 30 mn before to turn it back on
? I've reinitialzed the computer using therecovery CD provided with the computer
? I've removed the heatsink, cleaned it as well as the fan then put back some new thermal grease
? I've changed the memory

Yet I still have the same problem, for some unknown reason, the computer simply shutdown and the light stays on. On occasion, the power light do go off, and I'm able to start the computer again. But I'm unable to understand what makes the computer shut itself down, or when that happens, what makes turns the power light off and make it possible to start the computer again.

Any idea of what's going on ?
Could the power button and light being turned on be an error message?
If so, what does it means ?

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks !

Damien

the lights stay on even when taking the battery off and unpliging it to a while (30mm to an hour)

Hi

Usually the notebooks shut down due to high temperature and in such case, the unit should be disassembled and cleaned professionally but it seems that you already did it as I can read in your post above.

Probably its an motherboard problem.

You will find it in BIOS Advanced Features Bootup Numlock Status. Tap Delete when you reboot (or whatever key your PC advises) to get into the BIOS. Change it to ON using the Page up and doen keys. Save and Exit and le the PC reboot. Then Numlock should be on each time you boot up.

You could try the method here: http://blogs.interfacett.com/numlock-key-keep-resettingIt may work for Windows 10 as well but I haven't tried it. It's safe to create a system restore point before making any change in Regedit, you can also use any back up program to back up your system to an external hard drive as a precaution.

Question: No Number Lock

Hi, Everyone

This is my first visit here. This forum was recommended by a good friend of mine.

Here's my problem with my Asus g74sx.

It's a great computer, except for one thing~~there is no number lock!! Where one usually is brings up a calculator.

So, I can't do any Alt Codes.
I'm totally and completely frustrated. I wouldn't have bought this model if I had known. It's something that I wouldn't even think to ask.

Help, please.

tia,
Mrs Pugs


 

Answer:No Number Lock

It is confusing because the manual from the site shows a different keyboard.

Is this your keyboard http://images.anandtech.com/galleries/1440/asus-g74sx-02-keyboard.jpg

If it is it looks like those keys only have one function which is as numbers. They don't double for arrow keys which would mean nums lock is always on. This is just my initial interpretation.

Do the keys not function for inputting numbers in a program like Notepad? I realize you are asking about alt codes but want to know if the keys will produce numbers.

There are hundreds of posts on here describing how various keyboard functions are being turned off at every system start up . On my Dell for example the keyboard number lock can be set in Bios and is set on for me . Every time the system starts this is over-ridden and switched off . Now seeing as microsoft want us to use a numeric pin at startup , it is a bit more than frustrating to have to make keyboard changes for windows to work at all . Is there nobody on this forum or in microsoft who has any clue as to why this fault has been allowed to go unsolved for so long and what the fix is ?

Answer:Keyboard Number Lock

There is a manual Registry 'fix' but it's not exactly what should happen. I've applied it to several computers, both Notebooks and Desktops, and it does work but the result is that it seems to only retain the status of the NumLock as it was when shut down, returns the feature at bootup. If NumLock is On at shutdown it will come back on, if Off it will stay off at startup. I've applied it only on Notebooks with keyboards that have the separate Number pad, haven't tried it without that Number pad, don't know the effect on the 'standard' keyboard.

Hello and welcome to TSG!

It could be the way the BIOS was set up. Check your BIOS settings -- reboot your computer and press either DEL or one of the F keys (the BIOS screen on start up should tell you) to get into the BIOS.

Scroll through it and one of the choices may be about Number Lock upon start up and "Enable" it.

So when you pressed it nothing happened at all then?
Mine comes on as soon as I start up and log in
Did it work before you put in the latest update ?

Hello guys, i recently got infected by some nasty something.I ran malwarebytes full scan and combofix (which deleted some files in SysWoW64 and SimpleScreenShot.exe), after having done a system restore (restored to state of 4 days ago).Before all that, my PC opened CMD after booting for a sec, then closed it again, 5 to 10 mins later, the screen went blank and there was no sound anymore. As neither screen nor sound got back, i forced the pc to shut down, but it's light still remained on. Most off that is gone, since i restored system and used combofix, but i read, that i should post my log, so one of you could review it and make sure my pc's clean again.Hope it's not that bad and,Thank you very much in advance, greez.ComboFix 12-05-05.05 - pc 05/05/2012 13:53:09.2.8 - x64Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 6.1.7601.1.1252.1.1033.18.9207.7187 [GMT 2:00]Running from: c:\users\pc\Downloads\ComboFix.exeAV: Microsoft Security Essentials *Disabled/Updated* {9765EA51-0D3C-7DFB-6091-10E4E1F341F6}SP: Microsoft Security Essentials *Disabled/Updated* {2C040BB5-2B06-7275-5A21-2B969A740B4B}SP: Windows Defender *Disabled/Outdated* {D68DDC3A-831F-4fae-9E44-DA132C1ACF46}..((((((((((((((((((((((((( Files Created from 2012-04-05 to 2012-05-05 )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))..2012-05-05 12:00 . 2012-05-05 12:00 -------- d-----w- c:\users\Default\AppData\Local\temp2012-05-05 11:43 . 2012-04-13 08:46 8917360 ----a-w- c:\programdata\...

The number lock and side keyboard on my hp dv7t-1000 doesn't work. What gives?
I also had the synaptics &#8211; input &#8211; synaptics ps/2 port touchpad update failed. How do I get it to go again?

Thanks in advance
 

Answer:Number lock and side keyboard

I have been able to use a usb keyboard when the keyboard on my laptop was giving me problems. If you can't borrow a keyboard to try, you should be able to buy one for $10 or less. You can then determine if the problem is the keyboard and not the computer or an OS problem.

BTW I replaced the faulty keyboard on my laptop with relative ease and at an economical cost.

Where is the number lock on the KG-1450 keyboard?  On my keyboard there is clip board key where the number lock is found on most keyboards.

Answer:kg-1450 keyboard number lock

Hi there @Coel5?,Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.I understand that you are looking for a num lock key on your keyboard. I am happy to help with this. I have a similar keyboard attached to an All-in-One, which also has a clipboard key, in place of the numlock key. The other functional keys that often share the numeric keypad, such as the arrows, home , pg up, pg dn, are all immediately to the left of the numeric keypad and the numeric keypad functions solely as a numeric keypad. So a numlock is unnecessary. Test it out and let me know, and if it does resolve your concern, then please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hi I got my Y5-70 for about 2 weeks now, my number lock is not auto on at bootup which is very annoying, I tried change the regedit, set HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard,  InitialKeyboardIndicators to 2, but it only solve the problem half the time, because it only works on reboot, not shut off then start up. so is there other ways i can set it to auto on? Thanks Jeff

ASUS M51AC-US005S i5 16GB DDR3 1600 8 upgraded to 8.1

Right out of the box the Num Lock did not work.
Tried different keyboards. It is enabled in the BIOS.
Can't find anything in the manual for it. M51AC Manual

Its a pain to engage number lock before typing PIN to login and then engaging it again after logging in to use the number keypad.

Thank you

Answer:Number Lock- Always has to be turned on for PIN & Login +

I just tried leaving it on & restarting.
It was on when I restarted.
