Set Numlock to default On at startup

I have recently installed Windows 8 on my Acer 5740 laptop, I would like to find a way to set the Numlock to ON at startup, there is no provision in the Bios for setting this to default and I have seen several suggestions on the internet reference changing the registery setting, unfortunatly none for my model therefore I do not wish to try these USER settings for different models from mine.

The settings that I have so far are as follows:


Default 0

KeyBoard Indicators 2147483648

Delay 1

Speed 31

Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated

Regards, Miket.

The registry settings are the same for all machines, so if you have the appropriate setting for the registry, use it.

Have a read here it explains what the settings are for w7 and, I suspect that 8 will be no different.
