Have you tried going into BIOS and setting Num Lock ON in startup? Do the Num Lock / Caps Lock and Scroll Lock flash when you boot up?

Check the pins if using PS/2 or is it a USB keyboard?

On my acer aspire 5551 keyboard i dont know how to type the number key... how do i do it?

See page 23 of the manual here:

Num Lock + *

When Num Lock is on, the embedded keypad is in numeric mode.
The keys function as a calculator (complete with the arithmetic
operators +, -, *, and /). Use this mode when you need to do a lot of
numeric data entry. A better solution would be to connect an
external keypad.

In other words, hit the "Fn" key, and without letting go, hit "F11". That will allow you to type numbers.

The Numeric keypad on my Acer Aspire 7720 doesn't work. When I press Num Lock key the indicator light doesn't come on. The main keyboard works fine. I am using Vista.

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.

Keyboard letters 'm,j,k,l,u,i,o' permanantly locked for numerals. i have no idea how i switched this function on.

NumLock is on. Look for the Fn key in the lower left corner, and lookint in the top right, the NumLock key.

Locked keyboard and mousepad on acer aspire 6920G

Almost same problem: the mouse froze.

Found a nice solution at another website: switch off the pc, unplug the power supply cable AND remove battery. Press "on" switch for 20 seconds. Now re-install battery, plug back power supply cable, and switch on. Worked for me (what exactly worked for me I don't know but hey)

Good luck.
