I had the same problem and found the solution in a ubuntu forum. Although I use ubuntu, I am currently using windows and oddly enough the solution is same for both platforms. Just change your mouse settings to stop using numeric keypad on your keyboard as mouse. In windows 10, type "Ease of Access mouse settings". Turn OFF "Use numeric keypad to move mouse around the screen". And that should fix it.
Have you tried booting up in safe mode to see if it does the same thing?
Also check your keyboard to see if there is some type of key
combination that locks or unlocks the numeric keypad. If so, usually
you will have to hit the FN key or the ALT key or the CTRL key plus some
other key to get it to toggle.

is found by pressing the NumLock key and then looking for the
