    Numeric Keypad, Touchpad, and Minimized Windows Not Working in Windows 10?


    I'm having a problem with the above-mentioned components on my laptop. I really hope someone can help me out. I have a Sager NP6852 with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80 GHz, 8 GB of RAM and it's running Windows 10 Home version 1903.


    First of all, I wiped down my laptop today (first the screen with window cleaner and then the keyboard and mouse with alcohol) but it was turned off and I know better than to soak the thing.


    After that, I started it up and everything seemed fine. I then opened Firefox and it installed the most recent update. After the update installed, I kept getting this pop-up for "Toggle Keys" or something. I kept pressing "no". Then I started having problems with the numeric keypad. It won't type in all the numbers, just some and a few act like the arrow keys. Not only that, but they're making random computer sounds. If I keep pressing a number like umpteen times it sometimes will then type it.


    So of course, I searched Google, but then my touchpad buttons stopped working! I can still left-click on things using the pad, but the buttons are unresponsive. But not all the time. They'll start working and then stop abruptly. I discovered if I hold down the cntl button, let go and then click it works most of the time. It sometimes takes a few tries.


    And the last problem I'm having is that when I minimize windows, sometimes I can't get them to open again. It seems to happen when the touchpad goes out. I hover over them and the preview of the window just flashes. Now, as I was typing this out (using the Firefox browser) my little pop-ups for Grammarly are also flashing when the mouse malfunctions.


    I messed with accessibility settings, typing, keyboard, and touchpad settings after reading some articles on how to fix similar issues, but nothing is working! I also tried updating the drivers, but my computer says they're all up to date. I rollbacked the Synaptics driver, but that didn't work and now Windows is saying that's up to date (even though it was just rolled back). I uninstalled the Windows update that occurred on the same day as the problems began, but no luck. There's also a security update that took place, but Windows won't let me uninstall that one.


    If anyone knows what's causing this and how to fix it I'd be forever grateful. Otherwise, I'm looking at a whole Windows Refresh, which would mean installing all my programs, fonts, add-ons, and all the other things that would be an absolute, time-consuming pain. My suspicion would be the most recent Firefox update did this because that's when I noticed it. But I have no idea what to do about that or how to roll-back to an earlier version. I've always used Firefox and have never had an issue like this so I really don't know. I can't afford ANYTHING fyi (new laptop, external drives, ect.) and my warranty has expired. So sending it back or buying anything to fix this thing is not really an option right now.


    Again, any help would be extremely appreciated! PLEASE HELP ME.

    :)

    numeric keypad stopped working

    Hi,

    To assist you with your issue with numeric keypad, ensure that the Num Lock key is enabled. This key is usually located nearby or on the numeric keypad. Press the
    Num Lock key and test it to determine if the keypad is working.

    Use the following steps to resolve issues when either the numeric keypad does not work, but rest of the keyboard works correctly, or when the whole keyboard does not work but the numeric keypad works correctly:

    NOTE:

    Some keyboard functions might stop working when accidentally pressing and holding the
    Shift key or the Num Lock key for several seconds or when these keys are pressed several times.

    1. In Windows, search for and open Control Panel.

    2. In Control Panel, click Ease of Access.

    3. In the Ease of Access Center, click Make the keyboard easier to use.

    4. Uncheck the option for Turn on Mouse Keys, and then click
    OK
    .

    If you are still having issues, you can refer to the article below:

    Mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems in Windows

    Looking forward to your response.

    Regards.

    Numeric Keypad Won't Work! - Windows 10

    My numeric keypad only works on the login screen! I searched the internet and I couldn't find the answer. I would try and type numbers using the keypad on other programs, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Netflix, and it wouldn't type any numbers.
    I contacted a support line but they didn't give me a great answer. After some digging, I:

    • Open Settings
    • Select "Ease of Access" Settings
    • Select "Mouse" Settings
    • Turn off "Use numeric keypad to move mouse around the screen"
    • Make sure NUMLOCK is turn on or "Locked"

    Test it out and I hope it works!
