Compaq Presario R3000 & Dell USB Keyboard

  JNKScot 09:41 19 Sep 2006

Colleague of mine has a Compaq Presario 3000 laptop with a Dell KUH0015 USB keyboard; Presario recognises keyboard (OS is XP Home SP2) but numeric keypad does not work; whether NumLock is pressed or not it only acts as arrow keys i.e. not inputting numbers; setup as UK English; key assignments (apart from numeric keypad) are fine.

Am I missing something here?

I haven't tried accessing the BIOS yet.

Has he installed drivers for the keyboard? click here

Drivers not required in XP.

I found the problem, though - in Accessibility the "MouseKey" option had been selected; unchecked the option & Bingo! all working again.

Hope this helps others with similar problems.
