Re: Numeric keypad not working???

hi,

thanks for your reply to my problem.

 

unfortunatly it didnt work.

 

i also tried looking for a new driver for the keyboard and rolling back the existing one but nothing.

 

i tried setting the option "switch on numeric keypad" on the on screen keyboard options menu but still no good.

 

 

anyone any other ideas??

 

 

cheers rich

Re: Numeric keypad not working???

I would think that if your numeric pad isn't broken, that you would push the num lock. That's what appened to me and I pushed the num lock button and it turned it back on! But if your keyboard is just broken, then I would go and get it fixed. Sorry being a little too logic here :smileyhappy:

I mean if it is. If it is broken then get it replaced. I'm sure that you can find someplace that would replace your computer. :smileyhappy: Don't worry you'll get it fixed.
