Regfix for Windows XP Num Lock Issue

Windows XP will switch off the Num Lock key when it boots. In some cases it's enough to make sure that the Num Lock key is enabled when you shut down; Windows will remember the status of Num Lock, and enable it on the next boot. In other cases this may not work, and Windows will always default to switching Num Lock off when booting. To fix this:
Start the Registry Editor.
Go to Start.
Select Run...
Type regedit.
Click OK.

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Keyboard.

Double-click the value InitialKeyboardIndicators, and enter 2 as it's Value data and then click OK.

Close the registry editor, and restart Windows for the changes to take effect.
