Question about Acer Aspire 7720 Notebook
Replaced acer 7720 motherboard from one from acer aspire 5315 now numeric keypad wont work Updated bios to 7720 nothing changed (its the same version for both mb))Is this a hardware support problem?
Check your keyboard connections. Also, when powering on the unit, try holding down any set of keys through the boot process.
If the keyboard is working and connected correctly, it will show a fault when booting.
Also, you can use a USB external keyboard to do your BIOS updates.

Might give this a try-right click on your Computer icon-click on Properties-then click on Device Manager. The keyboard is listed there. If it has a yellow exclamation point, or a yellow question mark, then there is a problem. Click on the arrow in front of Keyboards, then right click on the drop down named keyboard. There you can click on update drivers. That should solve the problem.

Is your keyboard a PS/2 or a USB one ? if its a PS/2 (the cylindric connector) find a PS/2 to USB converter and plug it into a USB port (the flat rectangle connector)

try to access command prompt outside of windows using the operating system disc. (by booting to cd and go to repair your computer options then select command prompt) if the keyboard works fine on command prompt, there's no issue with the hardware. but if it still doesnt work, you will need to replace the keyboard.
