There are different ways that work, try and see what works for yours. Sometimes all you have to do is hit the space bar, press the enter key, hit any key, close the lid and open the lid and some require you to Press the Power Button. Don't worry pressing the power button will not reboot the computer unless you continuously hold it down. Just pressing and releasing it will cause the computer to wake up and resume.
Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock
key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function
keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and
off when you do this, indicating that the function keys are in use.
You need restart your computer and keep hitting key "F8" while starting up
This will show list of startup available.
Then you need to select "Safe mode" using Up/Down key and hit enter.

I presume your Number pad is Locked. To unlock it you should hold down theFn key then hit NumLk/F11 key. If it is locked every time you start/restart then the num pad is activated in the bios. You should deactivate it in the bios. Press F2 during the startup POST (power on self test) to enter bios. There you should look for the alternative to deactivate the num pad(it is system dependent).
