The numeric key pad on my keyboard does not work

There's usually a Numlock key that turns off the cursor movement and turns on the numeric keys. If it doesn't say "Num Lock" or something similar, you might need to press the Fn key with the F1-F12 key that looks like a numeric keypad. Pressing the Shift key while pressing a number on the numeric keypad should give a number output if the Num Lock is turned off, the cursor movement if Num Lock is on.

The numlock pad on my compaq pressario has stopped working. the light still works but none of the number keys are working. Can you help.

As a temporary solution, you can try using an external USB keyboard. That will work. To fix your number keys, you may need to get your keyboard replaced if it is broken. Will your Num Lock shut off? Try turning it on and off a few times.

I have a Acer Aspire 5532, my Number Pad on the right doesnt work, and yes ive pressed the number lock button and it still doesnt work. Help Please--Thanks.

Part of the keyboard is not working, the only solution is to have the complete keyboard replaced, they make the key system more of a throw away item. I suggest a computer repair store

Have an Acer aspire 7720-6712 laptop; pad doesn't work. downloaded drivers, still doesn't work. task bar has icon saying pad is ok


if your pad is not working even after the driver is installed then it might me a physical problem. Better get it checked with some hardware technician.

if the service cost seems high or costly better by a optical mouse and use it. it would be comfortable rather using a touch pad.

Function key plus number pad doesnt work. numpad is supposed to be fn key plus the four rows of 7890 uiop jkl; m,./ if NumLock is off, the +-*/ work, but not the numbers. the numbers behave as...

A numpad usually outputs the cursor movements with the shift bar depressed. That suggests to me that you need to turn of the Caps lock key, or otherwise make a change to the keyboard setup. Maybe there's a Fn key combo that needs to be toggled.
