Bk, you could try eBay, amazon, etc or get advice from a lock smith who may have access to aftermarket key pad. To show your appreciation press the helpful button and follow me on fixya for more tips and info.
Key Pad or Touchpad? Is it that the mouse pointer is frozen and does not work? If so, look at the middle of the touchpad at the top of it and there might be a button there that lets you toggle the touchpad between locked and unlocked.
Sometimes there might be a set of keystrokes you will have to hit to lock or unlock the keypad. Most times you will have to Press and Hold the Alt, FN or Ctrl key then hit the key (most times one of the F1 thru F12 keys) that controls the keypad. The key that controls the keypad will have the icon of a finger inside or pointing at a square that represents the keypad. On one laptop recently that I worked on it was toggled by Pressing and Holding the ALT key then hit the F6 key. F6 had a finger pointing at a square area representing the touchpad.
if a letter of the keypad of your laptop has been popped off, u need to request the key pad which includes the complete panel of the keys including the touch pad. You need to check your warranty and get it replaced.
I called a tech friend of mine at HP and he said he didn't know of any combination of keys that could turn off the keypad. I would check Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, Keyboard.
