A password is always combination of characters & numbers. I am so much used to num pad that every time windows start I end up entering wrong password just because NUM lock isn't ON by default. Since it's network login, it takes a bit long time to reset & prompt for right password. Is there a way to enable NUM Lock on when Windows loads?

There's an article in the Microsoft KB on How to enable the NUM LOCK key for the logon screen.

There is also a 'boot with numlock on' setting in most modern bioses.
