    There are two delete key shortcuts on my hp omen laptop. One above near the function bar and one down on the numpad. both function as a shortcut to delete things. but recently the numpad one stopped working as a delete function. if I try to delete selected files using it, I get just get an system error sound. the other delete key still works but the bottom one was very convenient for me and I need it! please help!

    :)

    delete key not working

    Which delete key? I have two. One is on the numeric keypad and if Num Lock is on it doesn't work.

    Num pad won't type numbers, just moves mouse

    You have pressed NUM LOCK key, possibly accidentally. The key is on top left corner of num pad, it toggles num pad ON / OFF. When off, number keys work as mouse keys.
