Hi all,I just got a new computer and I can't seem to be able to use the numbers in the number block to the right of the keyboard,nothing happens when I click them, the numbers running across the top of the keyboard work fine. Do you think there is a fault on my keyboard, or do I need to switch something on for them to work? Thanks in advance for any help.

There should be a key somewhere near the numberic keypad which says "Num Lock". Press that and it should cause the keypad to operate. You may find an indicator light come on as well.
