Win update and a problem......

After an update my HP Pavilion dv6 with AMD processor laptop it won't let me use the numeric keypad. Going to "Settings" seems to furnish no help; with the SSD I can't get to the setup screen before Windows loads; that screen can usually be entered by pressing "esc" when booting up Yes, I know about the NUM LOCK key.. Any ideas?

Try the F2 key when booting. Many bios programs recognize that as the 'edit' key.

The F2 trick got me to a test screen, but still no joy with the keypad. Thanks, though!

Try using Windows+R and executing osk (on screen keyboard). Try uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard driver manually.

Problem solved....perhaps!

Well, the problem seems to be solved! Just sort of poking around, on Control Panel I went to Ease of Access, then to Ease of Access Center, to Set up Mouse Keys. At the bottom there is Use Mouse Keys when NUM Lock is Off. I selected that and..... Voila! The number key pad works! Now to see if that will survive a re- boot. The question remains...how did the failure of the keypad occur? I've never visited the "Set Up Mouse Keys" screen before.... Cue eerie music....
Many, many thanks to all who made suggestions. PentaxForums is a wonderful resource
