Photo viewer pops up twice and number lock doesn't lock on log in

Question: Photo viewer pops up twice and number lock doesn't lock on log in

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.

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'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.

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.

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

Hi, im using a Packard Bell butterfly touch and until recently this had been my linux machine with my full size laptop running windows, however with windows 8 I decided id utilize the touchscreen on this machine and have a swap around. Replaced Ubuntu with Windows 8 fine however now on some of my keys the fn key is reversed (Ive included a picture to show which keys). The keys affected imply that number lock is on, however it is not and i have ensured so using registry editor, stick keys is not on either.

Any help much appreciated as this is driving me mad and makes typing very awkward...

17inch laptop F4J81X1.
Have had the problem since I bought the machine.  The number lock key will NOT stay on and must be reset if the machine is turned off or rebooted.?
Don

Answer:Number Lock key doesn't stay locked on.

Try this:  Boot to the signin screen, hit your NumLock button once then click the ShutDown/Restart icon to restart the PC.  This has worked for me in the past.
If that fails, look in your computer setup screen (F2 in he Dell screen part of booting) to see if there is an option there.  Be careful if you are not familiar with the setup menus.  Can cause some issues there you don't want.

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. How new pages open and links respond is controlled by the browser.Download the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool and run it.http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...It changes, so download and run it weekly.

Hello! Since the most recent build of W-10 (9879), my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights do not function on either computer on which I have W-10 installed (a desktop with a USB keyboard and a laptop with an integrated keyboard). The keys still work to correctly toggle the functionality, but the keyboard lights don't work. In case it matters, my keyboard's actual backlights and my mouse's internal light (not the laser, the internal LED) are working correctly, it's just the CL, NL, and SL indicators that don't function.

Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

Is there any way I can lock the icon layout in quicklaunch?

Answer:Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

Answer:Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock all lights up (not blinking)

Can you toggle those functions off, one at a time? Sometimes restarting the computer will use the last state it was in, I'd fully shut down and pull the power cord from the computer and the keyboard cable then put them back and try again.

Sometimes electrical components needs to have all power sources removed and reintroduced to work properly.  Try performing a hard reset first, if it doesn't work then try updating your BIOS.  If neither works...It's pretty much dead and not worth fixing.  To Perform A Hard Reset Shut down the computer by going to the Start menu and selecting shut down. (If you have no display, hold the power button down for  5 seconds)Disconnect the AC Adapter from the notebook.Remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook.  There will be a switch/button to eject the battery.Wait at least 1 minute with all power sources disconnected.Re-insert the battery and reconnect the AC Adapter and then attempt to power on the notebook.

This is a clean build, two days old. "On resume, display logon screen" is unchecked in the screen saver settings. No screen saver set, no password set.It's running on the stock "balanced" power setting. I can leave it alone for 5 minutes, and the screen will turn black; a bit longer and it'll hibernate. However, if I leave it untouched long enough - I haven't timed it, but an hour seems about right - the screen will awake from hibernation on its own (it is not the mouse creeping either) and display the lock screen again.Any ideas?-Kurt

Answer:Win 7 hibernates for an hour - then pops up w/lock screen

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.

The display when putting the Caps and Number Lock on has disappeared.No apparent reason.Have tried other Forums and it appears this is a problem elsewhere.Given that we are told that we need to use both Caps and Number for passwords,and when typing anything of length and the you realise that it is CAPS when it shouldn't be and has to be re-done is really annoying.For example tried to access a programme which locked me out eventually,so had to restart.There are some software out there,but usually not free,despite being advertised so,and in any event we are always just downloading without taking great care.I did see a suggestion,but it just brought me here and have tried to find the answer,but to no avail.Why this small thing has been done (I am led to believe this came from Microsoft) I am at a loss.I am no tech geek-just an ordinary guy who bought something in good faith and then coincidentally after a year,this disappears and the nearest I can get is some site which I think is linked to Microsoft,with an offer to fix it for free,and then at the end want around $30 dollars to do so!!!!Help-anyone,please.

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.

Answer:Keyboard Number lock

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.

For the "Power state" docked, is there a way to have the external keyboard number lock on and then, when the laptop is undocked, the number lock on the T61 is off? I have checked the BIOS and set the ThinkPad NumLock to Synchronized. And the Power-On Numlock to Auto. [INDEPENDENT] ThinkPad Numlock can be disabled independently of the NumLock state of an external keyboard. If ThinkPad NumLock in Enabled, the external keyboard NumLk[sic] will also be enabled. [Synchronized] ThinkPad NumLock and NumLock on external keyboard are synchronized. [Auto] Enables NumLock only when full size keyboard is attached. Did Lenovo complicate the Number Lock for external keyboards or am I missing something? INDEPENDENT does not really sound all that independent. How about this Lenovo engineer. If docked, then numlock on. If not docked, then numlock off.

Answer:Number Lock for External Keyboard

The majority of laptops is delivered without a docking station.And the BIOS (on both PCs and laptops) normally only offers a Power-On NumLock On or Off. A laptop by itself would normally have NumLock Off.Why be so fussy for when you dock, using an external KB? Just press the NumLock key there, and you're done!Don't bother with Synchronizing settings.You make it sound like you (or your users) are constantly docking/undocking.

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.

I have noticed two annoying bugs on my G-510 but cannot find the way to fix them. 1. When the computer starts, the "Num Lock" is ot set as default, so every time I start the computer and want to type my log-in code (numerical)I must hit the Num-Lock key to lock the numbers and be able to type. Is there a solution to this? 2. When I run my finger tips on the pad to move the cursor in any of the browsers I have (EDGE & Chrome), it always increases the zoom, so I have to go to the right hand corner click on zoom and reduced back to 100%.  Is this a defect on the laptop or am I doing something wrong?  

Answer:G-510 Number Lock key is not the default -how to change?

 
hi Bluewatch,
 
Can you try these steps:
 
1. Run the fix tool in this microsoft article (see Fix it for me) or manually set the Num Lock indicator to be always on during logon by editing the registry (see Let me fix it myself)
 
2. When the machine automatically increases the zoom, do you have two fingers on the touchpad?
 
If yes then you likely have pinch zoom and/or two-finger (zoom) gesture turned ON. Try to press the Windows key? +X  then navigate to the Control Panel  (icon views) > Mouse. From here, click Device Settings > Settings (for Synaptics Touchpad) or ELAN (for ELAN Touchpad) then disable pinch zoom / 2 finger gesture accordingly.

Could someone kindly let me know please how to access the "Number Lock" on my Ideapad S206 keyboard. Many thanks Jezza

Answer:Ideapad S206 "Number Lock"

hi Jezza,
 
Number lock is only used to disable or enable the number pad on a keyboard.
For old Laptop keyboard there is a number pad as other function of the M,J,K,L,U,I,O
like these:

 
I think S206 does not have the numpad so the numlock key is not there.
 
can you share how you want to use the numlock key
as the onscreen keyboard can give you an option for numlock.
 
Thanks Solid Cruver

Thanks!!!
 

Answer:Number keypad lock on keyboard

You need to go into your CMOS settings (sometimes called "Setup"). This is when you first start your computer. Usually, you hit the "del" key right when the computer is first starting up. Pay attention when it first starts and it should tell you how to access the "Setup". Go to either "Standard CMOS setting" or "Advanced Settings" (I can't remember which one right now) and it will let you set it to the way you want it.

I've tried enable the Bios settings for number lock, and this did not work. I've tried XP settings, and that did not come on. I've not tried both, but I don't think that will work either, b/c I hear that XP ignores the BIOS. I am using a Dell USB keyboard. Could it be that a regular PS/2 keyboard would work, but not a USB?

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.

You activated the number lock. The number pad to the right of the external keyboard usually has the button, but on laptops it's usually Fn+F#. It switches between numbers and Home/End/PageUp/PageDown functions for the number pad.
