    I have an odd keyboard issue. Number pads don't work, but the rest or the keypad does. i replaced the keyboard with a new one and the same thing happens. then I tried the new keyboard on another PC and it also happens. Microsoft tried correcting this by downloading and installing new drivers and it still happens.

    The Number pad typically serves two functions. One is to provide navigation via arrow keys, Home, PgUp, etc. The other is to provide numbers to the computer. You toggle between the two functions by using the Num Lock key typically located in the upper left corner of the number pad. Try toggling that key.
