    the keyboard command should have released the num lock, if it has not, then the keyboard itself may be faulty, to test this theory try the keyboard on another computer

Number pad on wireless keyboard not working


turn on your numeric lock............can be enabled in BIOS, should be same as on corded type.... The Print Screen key does not work. Try the following:
  • The Print Screen key copies an image of the screen to the clipboard (not the printer). To use the image, start an application that uses graphics, such as Microsoft Paint, and use the Paste function.
  • If your keyboard has an F Lock key, press it to toggle between Function key modes. On some keyboards, the Print Screen key only works if F Lock is on.

I cleaned my keyboard while turned on and now I cannot get my number pad to work, which buttons did I accidentally push to get to turn off and how can I get them back on.


Based on your description of the problem you're experiencing, it sounds like you most likely pressed the "NUM LOCK" key. If NUM LOCK was activated before you cleaned the keyboard and was accidentally pressed during cleaning, this key press would deactivate NUM LOCK, causing the number pad to stop responding. To reverse this, simply press NUM LOCK again. The NUM LOCK button is located right above the "7" key on the number pad (see picture below).

Alternatively, since the setting determining whether NUM LOCK is activated when your computer is started is stored on your hard drive, you can try restarting the computer to revert back to an active NUM LOCK. Be sure to try this in case the first solution above does not work.

If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

I`m using a wireless keyboard because the one on my laptop works but it has trouble on the part that has numbers witch are the letters .


From you're description it sounds like the "numb lock" check my be on. (numbers lock). On most keyboards you turn it on when you want to use the numbers pad. Or it may also be some other key shortcut on that keyboard which switches it to a numbers pad.

My number pad on my keyboard is not working, how can I reactivate it?


At the top, left corner of the number pad, there should be a key that says "Num Lock." This key toggles the functionality of the number pad keys between Numbers and Directions.

Press Num Lock once and the numbers should start working again.

Press it again, and the keys should go back to the Directions (up, down, left, right, Page Up, etc.)

Good luck!

Labtec USB Number Pad for Laptops with 2 extra USB Ports


I bought this number pad and had the same problems.

I found this fix. download this from the labtec site. http://www.labtec.com/pub/techsupport/keyboards/usb_numpad_for_notebooks_1.0v.exe This worked and the number lock off changed from grey, number lock off to, yellow number lock on and back again.

This appears to be a later driver update.
