    Default Numeric Keypad Malfuction

    When I press any of the keys on my numeric keypad on the right of my keyboard it makes little hearts/ spades/ back slashes/ tiny little boxes etc instead of the numbers and sometimes even turns off my entire system. Any ideas.. System is a Compaq 7AP190 keyboard is a Compaq SDM454OUL working with XP pro

    Many thanks in advance Ron

    Try updating driver, Control Panel>Keyboard>2 x click>Hardware Tab> Properties>Driver Tab>Update Driver. You could also try the troubleshoot on the Hardware Tab. If all else fails, you could uninstall driver and then reboot the pc and plug & play will load up the driver. Hope this helps.
