    Asus T200 notebook NumLock (Number Lock) problem

    As the manual says, there IS a NumLk Key on SOME MODELS.

    My model does NOT have a NumLk key (unlike my T100 which does, on the Insert button).

    When I use the T200 as a desktop, i.e. with a real screen and a real keyboard and mouse I normally have NumLock turned on.

    My problem is that when the full external keyboard (NOT the Asus dock keyboard) is detached and the T200 is put to sleep, restarted, shutdown or hibernated (shutdown /h), when I next try to use it the letter keys on the right on the dock keyboard are still in NumLk = On mode. So in my case I have no u,i,o,j,k,l etc keys available so the keyboard is USELESS!

    Not even the Windows "Standard" on screen keyboard which you can add to the other 3 options using PC Settings gives you a Num Lock key.

    This is ridiculous! It makes a nonsense of the T200 as All Things to All People All of the Time.

    Any ideas?

    Had the same problem, simplest way, just "create" a NumLk key. Create a new text file (with notepad or other), paste the text below and save it. Change the extension of the file (txt or whatever) to "vbs" (without quotes). Click on it everytime you need to turn off/on the NumLk key.

    set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    WshShell.SendKeys "{NUMLOCK}"

    Hope it helps,
    Cheers

    Just for future reference, since no one else seems to have mentioned it, and to help make sure others don't get confused in the future... W8 has basically two On Screen Keyboards...

    The default one is the new Touch Keyboard, which works best with the Modern/Metro side and offers options like different screen layouts for split keyboard, etc layout options...

    But there's also the old desktop Windows On-Screen Keyboard under the Control Panel > Ease of Access, which looks a little different from previous versions and has some added functionality options but it's the one that can provide you with the touch screen num pad...

    Basically, you just need to go into its options and enable the "Turn on the numeric key pad" option...



    And then it'll show the num-lock and then you simply enable it for it to then show the full num-pad... but if already enabled it should show automatically once the option is enabled...





    So, can be helpful if you didn't already prepare for such a situation with Diversion's solution or simply need a Touch Keyboard with the num pad...

    I can't get Diversion's script to work, it just opens in Notepad even though the extension has been changed to .vbs.
    Zeo' solution does work and gives me
    789
    uio

    as a number key pad on the dock key board which when used with the alt key gives all the characters want.
    Its just a real pain in the arse to get to to switch on and switch off.

    Cheers

    With a slight alteration to Diversion's instructions i got it to work. I used Notepad but I saved it as a.vbs script and All Files file type to the desk top. Now it works a treat.

    Cheers

    Nice solution. You could create a shortcut on the desktop to this .vbs file, and then make a hotkey for it. E.g. Ctrl + Alt + F1.

    The alternative is just to stick a keyboard back in and switch Nums Lock off on that. That's what I did when I had this issue today

    Fn & insert toggles num lock

    I had this problem with the T100HA. I finally figured out that holding fn and then clicking the insert button activates and deactivates the num lock. This might work on other models too.
