    Numeric/Navigational Keypad

    Greetings,

    I use the Numeric/Navigational Keypad in the Navigational Mode (NumLock OFF). I started doing this when there were fewer navigational keys, and I aim to continue. Can't break old habits.

    Recently navigation began to fail for this pad, but other navigational keys work. I have tested the pad with numlock ON by using an editor and the DOS prompt. Works fine, producing numbers in each case.

    Swapping KBDs does not help.

    The computer is running Win 7 Pro, 64-bit.

    It seems as though some software remapped a key. See the links at Windows 7 keyboard mappings for possible help.

    Mouse Keys (All Programs, Accessories, Ease of Use) which allows Numeric Pad to control Mouse -- slowly -- was activated. De-activated. All OK now.
