Question about Belkin Numeric Keypad Keyboard
I have an Acer notebook that is new and fine. I bought a Belkin F8E466 numeric keypad. My problem is the keypad will only input numbers when I press the NumLock on the keypad. this would be fine, except the keys on the notebook such as J, K, L, and such are now the second function of numeric entry. If I wish to enter the normal alpha characters I have to undo the keypad NumLock. I am constantly jumping back and forth. I tried a friends older Targus keypad and it will enter numbers when it's NumLock is on but leaves the notebook keyboard in alpha mode as I believe it should. My OS is Vista. Is there a fix for this? Thanks for any help.
I don't think there is a solution for this, this is by design Probably on your friend's keypad there are only numbers and no arrow functions on 2 4 6 and 8?

Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.
This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.
If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.
The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard
Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.
In the registry, open the below folders.
Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.
0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.
hope this helps
