Number pad not working Satellite A660

I have an A660. PSAW0U-15603R.  Purchased new.  In the last 6 weeks the number lock will not turn off and the numbers are erratic on pad.  Today 1,4,7,8,5 and 2 will not work.  I have done a lot of searching on the internet.  I have read some info about BIOS.  I'm not very good with computers.  Toshibia's website lists a down load available for my computer of ACPI flash BIOS version 2.2.  I was able to see that the BIOS I have now is version 1.9 from 12-23-2010.  I'm worried about downloading this new version.  Will it fix my problem or make it worse?  Thx

I don't see anything about that particular problem in the notes for the BIOS update.

 

Does the problem occur in Safe Mode as well?

How do I check it in safe mode?  Sorry responding so late.  Busy work week.

Re: Number pad not working Satellite A660

Hi Guys,

 

I had this issue and after checking the BIOS and various other tests in safe mode, solved it by following these simple steps.

 

Go to "Ease of Access centre"

Choose "Make the mouse easier to use"

Uncheck "Turn on mouse keys"

Choose Apply and ok.

 

Worked for me, might work for you.

Cheers
