  1. Keyboard misbehaves when number pads are turned off


    Hi, I noticed that some times my keyboard stopped working from Esc to the lowest rightmost button. It doesn't completely stop working, but it wouldn't type the alphabets, and CTRL somehow serves as a Shift button. Using virtual keyboard doesn't work as well. This has happened multiple times, and I notice that the issue usually happens when I leave my laptop to sleep.I tried pressing every single button and after I turned off the number pads lock, my keyboard starts working normally again. Is this an issue? Or did I miss anything?Thank you very much in advance.

    :)

  2. Number pad that comes with Sculpt wireless keyboard.

    Hi,

    This problem may occur due to an outdated or corrupted device driver. For us to provide the best resolution possible, we'll be needing additional information:

    • Is the number pad device visible on Device Manager?
    • Is the wireless keyboard working on your computer?

    Meanwhile, we suggest following the troubleshooting steps provided on this

  3. Use number pad of mac keyboard on Windows 10

    I have a Windows 10 desktop and I use a mac keyboard with number pad on it. Its model number is A1243 and its connected by USB. However I cant seem to get the right driver or configuration to get the number pad to actually work. Any suggestions?

    Keyboard misbehaves when number pads are turned off

    Locking definitely the numeric pad of my QWERTY keyboard

    Thought to add to the discussion but noticed the OP listed the License number in My Computer instead of the make, model name and model number of the computer itself. I have 2 types of Notebooks, some have the extended type keyboard with their own number pad and the others don't. Those without the number pad have usually have a setting using the Fn key plus another to toggle on or off the marked keys that can be turned into a number pad, marked with the color as the Fn key. In my experiments I obtained a portable battery-powered Bluetooth number pad that works good and was cheap.
