num pad not working on keyboard

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hi everybody,

I'm experiencing a problem with the numbers on the right of my desktop keyboard (apple), the numbers don't work while the other buttons do (=/*+-).

Also if I press "0" the buttons on the mouse stop working

So far I have tried swapping keyboards with an apple wireless keyboard, pressed the button over number "7" which should be a bloc num as in windows I think, but still haven't been able to fix the problem...

Any suggestions will be really appreciated, thanks.

    Try going into your system prefs - Universal Access and select the 'Mouse' tab there. Make sure the 'Mouse Keys' option is set to OFF. That should bring you back the numbers on the number block of the keyboard.

    Hope this helps.
