Number pad not working - Windows 8 laptop
Unsure if this is a hardware or software issue. Trying here first...
Purchased son a regular Samsung lappy for school. It is running Win 8 which quite frankly I am struggling with...but I digress.
Number keypad on the right no longer works. Numlock does not seem to have any effect. Arrows on the keypad work fine, just can't get to the numbers.
I am hoping that there is some setting somewhere that he may have fiddled with?
Tried turning on the numlock function on using the on-screen keyboard as result of Google search, but no other on-line suggestions found, at least not without hacking into the registry as they suggest.
Have checked and is using Eng NZ - US keyboard.
Anyone familiar with Win 8 can point me in the right direction? I can't find anything on this mess of an operating system.
Failing that I guess it may be a hardware fault and it will be heading back to the shop.
