This had me stumped for a little while too because I'm so used to num lock referring to changing the function of the number pad, not enabling the inline number pad. That and the lack of indicator lights for numlock/capslock status.
You might have enabled the mouse keys that is why you cannot use your number key pad. Try going to the Control Panel >> Accessibility Options. Go to Mouse tab and see if the Use mouse keys is "checked" if it is, then UNCHECK the box and click OK.
Also, see if you can find the NumLock key beside the CTRL key on your keyboard or if there is a NUMLOCK key on the upper left corner of your keypad and try to pressing that to enable it.
Check if you have installed the latest drivers... For the touchpad, you should be able to find them on the hp support site For external mouse, there should be drivers on the manufacturers site or the driver disk that came along with it.
Is it the touchpad that doesn't work, or is it an external mouse?
