Hey all,

Recently I starting having issues with the numpad on my laptop and was wondering if anyone might be able to help.

Basically, I've found out that nearly every button on my numpad (0-9, /, *, +, -, . and num lock) now act as if they were the F3 key. I'm unsure what could have caused this and haven't had any luck searching around for a solution.

It seems the computer actually considers them the same key as the F3 key, which makes me think it may be some sort of hardware failure. I attempted to use a program that would let you remap what a key did, but selecting any of those keys showed up as if I had selected the F3 key.

Any help would be appreciated!
