You certainly should NOT need to do this, however

found this technical modification for XP at 

 

http://www.geocities.com/lclane2/numlockoff.html 


"To set the default NumLock key state:

Use a registry editing tool to navigate to the following key:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard

Insert or change a value with the following details:
Data Type: DWORD
Value Name: InitialKeyboardIndicators
Value: 0 = NumLock is turned off after logon, 2 = NumLock is turned on after logon

Restart the computer for the changes to take effect. "

Usually in your BIOS you can set Numlock to be turned off.

Some functions are controlled by the BIOS,

but cannot be directly accessed from within the BIOS.

 

Just a guess, but try resetting your BIOS to its default.
