    If it was a Desktop you could use a Bios Setting however seeing it is a Laptop you would have to change it in your Registery... I am not sure if that is something you want to do yourself or have someone do it for you that knows how to make the changes.... Here are the steps and hope it help

     

    First, run "regedit"

    Then go to \HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard

    change value "InitialKeyboardIndicators" from "2147483648" to "80000002"

    your done now restart and u will have NUM LOCK ON always on windows startup

     

    Hope this helps

    Thank you

    My initial value is set at 2, I've tried resetting it to 80000002 and this does not change anything, I'm starting to think each computer has it's own set of quirks

    I am sure you did, But did you restart your computer? Sorry it could be a step overlooked...

    Oh also make sure it is under the right area..... Here is a Picture of the starting value on my un touched computer for testing in Win 10, Would be same for 8 and 8.1 as well...
