On a laptop, the "Num Lock" key has a function slightly different than the one it performs on full-d desktop keyboards. Activating "Num Lock" on a laptop usually transforms a set of central keys, including many letters, into number keys, allowing typists used to entering numbers on a keypad to type efficiently. While on desktop keyboards "Num Lock" usually has a dedicated key, on laptops it often shares a key with another function on MacBooks, for example, it shares the "F6" key and you must hold down the "Shift" or "Fn" key to activate it.
Look for the "Num Lock" key on your laptop's keyboard. This is usually near the top of the keyboard. If the key says nothing on it except "Num Lock" if that's the only function the key performs you can just press it to activate the lock; a light will probably go on somewhere to indicate that "Num Lock" is on. If the key has multiple functions, you'll have to hold down a different key while pressing it. Hold down "Shift" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears above some other writing on the key, the way various symbols appear above the numbers on the keyboard's number row. Hold down "Fn" and press "Num Lock" if the writing saying "Num Lock" appears in a different color often light blue that's shared by the "Fn" key.
There maybe a setting in the BIOS to turn OFF the number lock. Try installing the WEBcam driver. Download the WEBcam and device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require that matchesthe Windows version that is installed on your laptop.

The number lock has been selected, there is a LED light that is on to indicate the number lock has been selected. You will also find several keys when press will give numbers instead of letters.
Look at the keys above the function keys for the number lock key. some laptop keyboards use the Fn key plus the SCRLk key.
This is a simple problem, due to the size of laptops, the
manufacturers cannot fit on a normal number pad as on a standard
keyboard, so what they do is use a function key to turn a portion of the
keyboard in to the number pad.
to get rid of this you need turn the 'number lock' off this may be a
single key or a combination.
for my laptop its:
press together; the function key (normally 'Fn' bottom left) and the
number lock key (Num Lock).
hope this sorts out the problem.
