    Number Pad not working in new windows 8 laptop

    I have recently bought a new Toshiba Satellite laptop which came with windows 8. Everything is working fine including hardware and software. However, I have noticed that the number pad is not working but All other keys in the keyboard are working fine. I have checked the bios settings as well and everything looks normal. Is this a hardware issue? Kindly provide some help.

    I is very much possible that a hardware issue is crippling the Numeric Pad of your Satellite Laptop.

    However, before concluding to that point, do a verification of the windows wheather software might be the reason.

    Click Start--Settings--Control Panel--Device Manager, check the Keyboard device and find out if any notification is there.

    Again Click START--SETTINGS--CONTROL PANEL--DEVICE MANAGER--KEYBOARD--DRIVER--UNINSTALL, and clean the system,
    click UPDATE DRIVER and follow the prompt to download latest Windows 8 compatible Keyboard Driver from Toshiba Web Site and install.

    The injection of latest working driver will make the keyboard function properly.

    Dear Friend,

    You are facing very minor problem.

    You just need to find the Num Lk (Numeric Lock) key and press it once.

    Your numeric keys will be unlocked now and you can use it.

    All the best.
    Thank you.

    My dear friend there can be only two reasons here,

    1.Either you have pressed the num lock key accidentally on your laptop.Maybe that's why you are being unable to use the numeric pad on your laptop.So you should press the num lock button again and now the number pad will work.

    2.If that's not the case then it is a hardware issue.And as your laptop is new so you should take it to Toshiba customer care center. They'll fix it for free.

    Good luck!!!!

    Re: Number Pad not working in new windows 8 laptop

    Hello there !!!

    you have gonna to be deep in search of making the
    number pad to get to work

    even you search for the BIOS too.

    so let me tell you that on the area of the number pad there is one
    key called NUmLk or simply num lock.

    this key control the actvating and deactivating of the number pad.
    so you need too turn the NumLk key ON n order to activated the
    number pad.

    and your issue will be cleared.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    Dear,
    Your problem is mainly due to the wrong setting ..........................
    Just make sure you enable the Num Lk before using the num pad......................
    Then also problem exist then either contact to the service provider or just first update driver and restart your computer ......................
    As you have purchased new one , chances of error in hardware is low as they have tested it before taking it in the market..............
