Numbers Lock will not stay on in Windows 10

Q: Numbers Lock will not stay on in Windows 10

Anyone have any idea what I need to do in Windows 10 to get my Numbers Lock to stay on all the time?
Each time I start the system I have to remember to press the Numbers Lock button. On my Windows 7 it stayed on all the time unless I purposely turned it off.
It's no real big deal to push a button, but it's just a pain in the rear to type in a password or user name and discover it didn't work simply because this darn button was turned off by the system.
Oh, I did do a "regedit" and changed the numbers in the box to #2 and restarted the system. When the system restarted the Numbers Lock light was on and I figured I must have fixed it. However when I booted up today it was off again.
 
Thanks for your help!

Preferred Solution: Numbers Lock will not stay on in Windows 10

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.)

A:Keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters? (NUM LOCK IS NOT ON)

If this is a laptop see if this helps.

If you're writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

This is killing me.
When in word documents or typing in browsers, my laptop keyboard is perfectly fine, but when I'm in a game or certain other programs (like typing in Pandora, the internet radio) my keyboard (all the numbers, letters, and punctuation keys), when hit, will display numbers. No matter what key is pressed the first press gives me a "1," the next a "2," and so forth until "0" which is when it goes back to "1." I can't play anything and have to copy paste into Pandora's typing field. Oddly, when I hit CTRL-V to paste it still registers. CTRL-random number would not paste, so something is (I think) changing my letters into numbers after the letter registers.
I tried to do all the Num-lock and scroll-lock stuff but it didn't work.
AVG Free's scheduled scan turned up nothing.
I'm currently scanning with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Spybot S&D. Unhackme says there is no Trojan on my computer.
I temporarily fixed the problem previously with a system restore, but it did not last.
Someone please help!

When I engage NUM LOCK the keys on the right of the main keyboard also become number keys as well as on the numeric keypad on the right.
I've tried pressing Fn and NUM LOCK at the same time like on a non extended keyboard but this makes no difference.

I've also tried different input languages and keyboard styles.
I can't test with an external keyboard because I don't have one. I've downgraded from vista to XP.
I don't know if this made a difference because I didn't notice this until after the downgrade.

Any ideas?

A:Re: Satellite P300-276: keys on right of keyboard become numbers when NUM LOCK

Hi

Sorry but I think I don?t understand your issue?
Fact is that if the NUM LOCK is enabled (FN +F11) then the buttons; U, I, O, J, K, L and M become to numbers:
U to 4
I to 5
O to 6
J to 1
K to 2
L to 3
M to 0

If you would press FN + F11 again then the buttons should be set back to letters...

My numbers lock & scroll lock are coming on & off by themselves (along with "exception beeps"). In addition "b,n,*, & /", appear in text windows without me typing them. Sometimes they appear a few times, other times they repeat many times. Drop down menus appear & highlight different options without me doing anything. Sometimes a highlighted option is selected / clicked on without me doing it. At times my mouse becomes non functional, it freezes I can not highlight and use backspace to clear the offending text. Other times, the back space will not work without the mouse being froze. Less often, a new page that i didn't click on, will open.

Windows XP sp2:

when caps lock is toggled off, curser types all caps. When toggled on, types small case.!

the numbers above the letters will not type numbers, only the symbols that should type when you select the shift key in either toggle mode. The number pad to the right will not work at all. i can type no numbers at all.!

When selecting a program via double clicking icon from the desktop, the left (primary) mouse button acts as a select all. Windows then prompts that it will take too long to open all of the applications selected. (because whatever is doing this highlights everything above and to the left of the mouse location.

This select-all problem also exists inside other softwear such as Word. and also in all fields in web browser where any data is entered by the keyboard.

In laptop mode the "rotation lock" option is disabled, which I guess is by design and that's fine. When I flip the screen to stand mode the option is enabled and turned off. I can turn the option on and it works as expected. If I flip the screen back to laptop mode and then back to stand mode, the option is turned off again. How can I keep it turned on? I never use tent mode or portrait mode, so I don't need it and it messes with my window sizes. I could disable the ymc service, which fixes this problem, but then the keyboard doesn't turn off in stand mode. Anyone have any ideas?

Not a techie.  Can't get straight answer ANYWHERE.  New laptops tend to NOT have indicators on the keys.  Hoping Windows 10 has indicators that can be turned on and PROBABLY would show up in the tray at the bottom right of the screen. 
I have heard of sites where such things can be downloaded but again NOT a techie, so I hesitate to go outside of Windows/Microsoft for downloads.  I do not know what download sites are safe or spoofs.

Most of my programs included Microsoft Office, Adobe suite, Steam, iTunes, uTorrent, McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, Winrar, VLC, etc. But are now gone due to the refresh I had just done last week for prior problems, but still experience problems.

Now, I want to take off the last 4 numbers, and the dash, from all the numbers in the column, using a formula. So that the output would be: 54321.

I want it so the first 5 numbers stay the same, but the dash and last 4 are gone. Is this possible?

This was asked before by KlausdB:

"I have 4 x HDDs on SATA AHCI (Intel Controller) in Native Mode and 1 x ESATA on Win 7 Pro X64.
I noted that looking in Admin. Tools\Computer Management\Storage (as an example) the 1st HDD (Port 0 in the AHCI BIOS) is showing as "Disk 2" instead of my expectation of


"Disk 1".
Selecting the Drive's Properties correctly shows the "Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0)".
I also note that the Disk Number allocation in Windows will change randomly after some reboots/startups - going anywhere from "Disk 1" to "Disk 4".  I can force/replicate this


behaviour by removing the ESATA drive.
Is this expected behaviour?
It doesn't appear to create any operating issues at this stage, however, is there a way I can force the Drive to always map to (eg) Device 0 --> Disk 1, Device 1 --> Disk 2,


etc?

 This was answered by Nicholas Li:

"As far as I know, how the disk is plugged physically and the order it is displayed are not related. For a simple example, if a drive is plugged to SATA interface 4 and it is the only disk, it will be displayed as Disk 0. If there is no related issue about

I have three SATA hard drives :
Main system/boot drive , WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 0 port
A backup drive, identical WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 1 port
Another dirve, Hitachi 1 TB, connected to the SATA 2 port
When I installed Win 7, only the main drive was connected... and it remains the only drive with active/system/boot partitions.

QUESTION 1.
All three drives reporr correctly in the BIOS, and in the right order, but why is it that only one of the drive (the one on SATA port 1) has a "SATA:" prefix and the others have a "HDD:" prefix ?

QUESTION 2,
Why is it that the assignment of Disk #0, 1, 2 ( as seen in Disk Maanger or DiskPart) does not seem to have nay rhyme or reason?

I would have expected:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port O, to be assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, to be assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, to be assigned as Disk 2

but instead, I have:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, is assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 0, is assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, is assigned as Disk 2

Just curious why that is.

I am assuming there is no way to chagne this. Its not something I would dream of reinstalling Windows 7 to correct ( even if it did correct it).

Best advice, leave it alone. It may bother your (and others) sense of order but it won't affect how anything works, and no re-installing Windows won't change it.

Hi all..

Before I pull out every last strand of hair... someone smarter than me, please come forward.

Thanks to the good advice here and the scan results, it seems that my problems may not be malware-related (right now).

The issues that I have been having are a little strange.. and seem to be connected to sound and touchpad now.

Volume settings won't stay in "up" position and I have no system startup sound anymore. Touchpad first started giving me errors that the advanced features were disabled because another device was in use, when it wasn't.

Touchpad cursor started jumping all over the place - had to plug in a mouse to do anything. I uninstalled, then reinstalled the touchpad and it works fine until I reboot.

Something from the last few days has wiped out all my System Restore points. So whatever it is, or was, that caused these changes has me puzzled. I've been dealing with this for 3 days straight and I've tried just about everything.

This is an older HP Pavilion laptop..zv6000 with AMD Athlon 64 processor, XP OS. A few episodes of freezing have happened today as well..or just "sticking" in one place for a lonnnnnnnnnnnnng time.

Anyone who wishes to advise, I am ready to listen.

Welcome apivin to the windows 7 forums.

You might help by filling out the system spec's on your system.

Also, Is your problem that the program your trying to run requires a com port higher than 7?

You can in most cases, in your system configuration rename the com port to a higher number.

Also have 2 optical drives, 1 HP super- multi with Lightscribe and the other is a LG super-multi. All this is in an Antec 300 box with an Antec 750W power supply. All the drive connections are SATA.

The second board is an Asus P6T SE with 6gb Corsair Dominator DDR3 ram
and an XFX Radeon 4760. Everything is set to factory settings with no overclocking yet. The best I have seen on the index with this one is also 5.9 but the processor score is 7.5 and the memory score is 7.4. The rest of the subcategories are a flat 5.9. The hard drive is a Western Digital
VelociRaptor 300gb . Also have 2 optical drives, 1 HP super- multi with Lightscribe and the other is a LG super-multi. This is in a midtower with an Antec 750W power supply. Again all the drives are SATA.

I have tried the SATA drives set to IDE and AHCI with no improvement either way.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions to improve the performance?

Thanks,

Gene

A:What are the Latest KB Numbers to fix Windows Update NOT wor...

Rob3307 Folks have bandied about a couple of different KBs -- claiming these both "fixed" Windows Updates.  But further examination has revealed that NOT to be true. I continue to support a bunch of Win7 PCs, some of which were rolled back from Win10 because the owners disliked Win10 so much.But, I have noticed that recently, Windows Update has been performing really slowly on ALL these machines.The symptoms are that it searches for HOURS -- and does not appear to make any progress!OR .. it finds stuff, but then goes into downloading for HOURS ... and does not appear to make any progress!Anyway,  check for a Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Downloads\ folder.  This is where Windows Updates stores the updates it downloads and its working files.  IF it exists, Windows Update is working -- even though you see no progress.  Over time, the folder will grow until all the Updates have been downloaded.  Then, it will shrink as the Updates get applied.  When done, Windows should remove it. If it does not, you can remove the contents of that folder, but do not remove the folder itself.And yes ... updates are taking hours (or days!) when they used to take only a few minutes. So basically, there is nothing wrong with your PC.  And -- if you RESET it, you are only going to make matters worse as that will start the Update process from scratch, and the last time I did that, it took three full days (!) to find, download, and apply all the updates...

Im using windows 10 totally updated version and the problem im facing is that windows keeps adding numbers after my WiFi name/SSID and the number keeps on increasing. It aint causing any trouble with network usage but I still wanna fix it and wanna know whats causing this. Ive attached a picture with this thread where u can see the wifi name states Redmi 7 but my network name is just Redmi. This 7 was 2,3,4... some days ago. Please help me asap with this issue ill be grateful.
 

A:Windows keeps adding numbers after my WiFi name

I don't understand why that is a "problem" or why you are bothered, but I don't need to understand. In Network Connections you can right click on the connection name and select Rename and call it whatever you wish (within reason). I should add that you could do this in previous versions of Windows but I'm only assuming the ability has not been removed in Windows 10.

Hi all,

New here, so I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this(if it isn't, admins please move it to the correct forum, thanks!). I'm currently running Windows 8.1 and recently I took a look at my Resource Monitor and noticed a process called numbers.exe with the description "Numbers". It showed it as running in the background but in a suspended state.

As I've never seen that process before, I decided to search it up and it came up with some results related to a trojan/rootkit. But this trojan/rootkit was namely referred to as <random numbers>.exe (for example: 123456789.exe); nothing indicating specifically the process "numbers.exe". I did a bit of digging in the associated handles and noticed that some of the files were related to the default Windows Calculator App, which I have currently pinned to my Start. When I unpinned it from the Start the process was gone.....so I'm assuming it is the process for the calculator. But because of a trojan incident I had a few years back, I'm a bit paranoid based of the searches that popped up for numbers.exe.

So I was wondering if anyone knows if this "numbers.exe" is a legitimate process? Does anyone else who also has the default calculator pinned to their start have this process running as "suspended"?

Anyone help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

A:Windows Calculator App = numbers.exe process?

I just fired up Windows 8.1 Calculator. The only things I see listed are Windows Calculator under processes and calc.exe under Details. No numbers.exe. I hope this helps.

I ripped music through windows media player. I find the files in a folder called unknown artist, inside unknown album. I rename them, move them to other folders, but when I look for them again, they are back in the original place where they were ripped to, and unnamed. I've went through that process multiple times with the same outcome in the end. I don't know what to do, I'm starting to think there is something wrong with my computer.

Hello. I don't know how exactly to explain my problem but I'll try:
I connect to a wireless network whose name is for example "X" and I have a network connection but I don't have internet access. I disable and enable the wireless adapter and the name of the network is now "X 1" and so on... The problem is my internet is only working on number 9 and I don't know how to delete the other available settings (I am not sure if they are settings) so I can connect only to number 9, not to all other numbers to 10 in different orders - I mean if I disable/enable once it gives me a lucky number - not one after another. I don't know if you understood what I mean but I really hope so. Thank you

A:Windows 7 puts numbers after my wireless network name

See here for info on removing unused Wireless networks: How to Remove a Wireless Network in Windows 7

Also, you can rename the network connection if you want.

netsh interface set interface name="Local Area Connection 2" newname="Local Area Connection"

Actually, you could make newname anything you want, like "Fred's Internet" or "My Wireless Connection".

I have sought a solution for this problem for a few weeks and cannot find one.

My notebook is an HP Pavilion dv9005ca Laptop (17in. screen) and has a separate numeric keypad. Running Windows XP SP2 with all patches.

The keys: M,JKL,UIO produce numeric characters (0 to 6) when the num lock key is on and the correct characters when it is off (some other keys on that side of the keyboard produce symbols found on the numeric keypad).

Following HP support suggestion at [url not allowed:-( ] I have tried the Fn + num lock combination but this does nothing.

When I first boot up the characters are normal until the num lock key is toggled.

At some point a while ago when entering text I believe I inadvertently pressed a combination of keys that caused this problem.

I hope someone can help.

Hello, 1st post, glad to be here.

I am having a problem that I find odd and something I never noticed with Windows Search in the Win 7 environment. I have users who name files strictly with numbers. No letters, just straight numbers. They're part drawings made by drafting software (i.e. Solidworks, AutoCAD). I don't believe this has been a problem before Win 7 As I believe XPs search did find these types of files search strings with out issue.

I've attempted to mess around with the Indexing under Folder Options and the Search tab. That didn't seem to help. I also did a google search for the topic and found third party software but where I work at it would to be a tough time selling this to management to allow me to install.

I have level 1 tech support experience and anything with command line and me usually is a very slow process but if any of you happen to know a way to get this type of search to cooperate without third party software i'd greatly appreciate the input. Thank you!

A:Windows search can't find files named with just numbers.

Hello CentralPA and welcome to Seven Forums.

I just tried this and Windows Search found files with numbers only.
I don't usually use Windows Search and have indexing turned off.
