    Hi,

    I've been trying to get an external keyboard (USB) to work with my Z830 running Win 7 (64 bit). I've tried three different USB keyboards into different ports and also a wireless keyboard.

    The keyboard itself works fine but I can't get the numeric keypad to the right of the keyboard to work.
    It allows me to move around the screen ie when the numlock is off but when the numlock is on it doesn't do anything.

    I've looked in the bios and changed the settings relating to legact devices and also the numlock option but to no avail. The numeric keypads on the keyboards have worked on other machines.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,


    Ash

    Hi

    Iím not quite sure about that but my assumption is KBC code is missing in BIOS.
    The Satellite/Portege Z830 keyboard does not support the numeric keypad so possibly this is the reason why the numeric keypad on external keyboard cannot be activated.
