trying to turn off the numlock functionality as a whole and function keys to be locked as well!
I'm using the keyboard that comes along with the desktop and I've tried every single thing.
if anyone has any idea how to get this thing done I would've appreciated it.

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:
Change the action key setting from the BIOS Setup Utility.
Press and hold the Power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
Turn on the computer and immediately press the f10 key repeatedly to open the BIOS Setup Utility.
Press the right or left arrow key to select the System Configuration menu.
Press the up or down arrow key to select Action Keys Mode.
Press the Enter key to display the Enabled / Disabled options.
Press the up or down arrow key to select one of the options.
Enabled: Does not require pressing fn to use the actions printed on the function keys.
For example, pressing f8 lowers the sound as printed on the key. Alternately, pressing both the fn + f8 minimizes and maximizes a web browser.
Disabled: Requires pressing fn to use the actions printed on the function keys.
For example, pressing f1 opens a help window. Alternately, pressing both the fn + f1 keys puts the computer to sleep as printed on the key.
Press the f10 key to save the selection and restart the computer.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
