    there was s registry edit for XP that let you define the num lock state
    before login..

    in Vista the same registry path does not exist, also no MS article seems to
    mention this...

    so how can someone define it in Vista???

    Please dont say anything about the BIOS... ok? It has no setting in the
    bios.. this is
    a windows configuration.

    This would be the key that I would try, if I had the problem.


    InitialKeyboardIndicators

    at

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard

    from 0 to 2

    as per this article

  3. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard

    InitialKeyboardIndicators: REG_SZ: 0


    Change it to a 2 to enable the NumLock on login. The key is in Vista.
