Windows On Mac :: How To Get Keyboard Number Pad To Work With Fusion
I'm using Fusion with my Boot Camp partition on my MacBook. I've got an external keyboard (Matias OSX Keyboard). My number pad doesn't work in Windows but does in OS X. I'm not sure if there is a num lock key or how to access it if that would make the difference.

Hardware :: Number Pad Not Working On Aluminum Wired Keyboard?
My number pad hasn't been working lately. It looks like some kind of setting has taken effect and I'm not sure how to fix it. For example, my numbers are now directional movements for my cursor: 2 moves it down, 4 moves it left, 6 moves it right, 8 moves it up, and 1, 3, 7, and 9 move my cursor diagonally. My Logitech MX Laser mouse works fine but somehow clicking gets disabled. I have a feeling these problems are related somewhere.

MacBook Pro :: Apple Wired Keyboard - Differences Between One With And Without Number Pad
I want to get the apple wired keyboard (not the wireless), but I'm undecided on which version. Is the shorter wired version a lot more cramped than the longer one, in respect to the majorily used keys, or is the spacing the same between the characters for both keyboards. I never use a num pad normally and would like to free up a little space on my desk, but I'm worried that the rest of the keys will be more cramped and uncomfortable to type on.

Mac Pro :: Unable To Use DashBd Calculator / Not Working With Right Number Pad?
I have searched this forum and the internet. My number pad on the right side of my keyboard works with everything EXCEPT the calculator. What did I do? cannot find anything anywhere to address just that. The numbers work fine everywhere else.

I did all the jumps to make sure on the system pref and the mouse off, holding my tongue just right and jumping five times...hitting the option key five times, the fn button and the clear button. the number work everywhere but on the calculator.

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Use Number Pad On Keyboard
I have a iMac with the aluminum keyboard that has a number key pad on it. When I select the numbers on the number keypad it won't key in the number either on a spreadsheet or a document, in fact it actually freezes the screen. I tried a different keyboard and same thing happened. Is there a command for unlocking the number keypad?

Snow Leopard :: Keyboard Glitch Number Pad With SL
One computer, two drives with two different OSX versions; one Leopard and one Snow Leopard. It keeps me from having all my eggs in one basket.One keyboard. The extended aluminum slab.Booting in SL causes the number pad's numbers to fail to work. Booting in 10.5 Leopard has them working just fine.

Before installing SL over the previous OSX, they worked fine. All the other keys work just fine in both versions.I've tried to find anything similar on this in the discussions, but either nothing's there or I missed it. How can I get my keyboard functional in SL?

Hardware :: Make Number Pad Apple?
Right now I am working at a desk, with a USB number pad. It is a different height than my MBP and has different sized keys. It ends up being difficult to use quickly. I think that Apple should make a number pad that is pushed up to the same height as the MBP because it packs a battery inside. With their wireless obsession, I am sure Apple would want to make a bluetooth device, but it would make so much more sense to me if the pad could add a couple extra hours of battery life. It would come with a MagSafe dongle (power discharge) and a USB dongle (input and power charge) in a single cable like the displays. The device would charge when the computer was connected to A/C power, and only discharge when both the MagSafe cable and USB cable were connected to a computer, to make sure that it would not accidentally discharge in a customer's laptop bag. It is unfortunate that the MagSafe and USB ports are on the opposite side of where a number pad should be, but an extra 18� of cable would be a small price to pay for faster inputting and longer battery life.

IMac Intel :: Separate Number Pad For Small Keyboard?
Does Apple make, or support, a separate number pad that will work with the small wireless keyboard? (It would be a good thing for the MacBooks too.)

I like to use a number pad for some things, I also prefer a cordless keyboard. Those are mutually incompatible choices at the moment. I see separate number pads for PCs (Logitech for one) would one of these work with the new iMac?

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Track Pad Lockup/freeze/stop Working?
I have been using Macs for years at work but never had my own until now.

The problem I am facing is a little concerning since the machine is only 2 weeks old.

When it wakes from sleep, the keyboard or track pad simply dont work, so I am unable to enter my password to gain access to the machine.

Another strange thing I noticed if I click APPLE and then ABOUT THIS MAC.

Nothing happens.

Is there anything I can do to repair this or run a diagnostic of some sort?

An external wacom tablet plugged in works and a mouse too, but the internal track pad and keyboard does not, on waking from sleep mode.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Track-pad Disabled After Installing A USB Driver From The Apple Website?
While trying to fix my disabled USB ports on my MBP, (Installing some sort of USB driver that wasn't made for my specific OS, which is 10.7.4, which came from the apple website.) I rebooted my computer and I notice that once the loggin screen shows up the cursor won't budge. Then I try hitting Enter on my mac and the arrow keys a little. Nothing. Then I try using every key on the keyboard. Absolutely nothing. Tried resetting the PRAM, SMC, AND tried using Safe Boot. Nothing. At this point I wanted to smash my computer or smash something technology related. The only thing that works on my computer now is the little slim of hope that I call Windows 7 which I am posting this from.Is there ANYTHING I can do to enable my Trackpad and Keyboard again?

Windows On Mac :: Boot Into Windows 7 RC From OSX W/ Apple Wireless Keyboard?
As far as I understand there is a bug that stops Windows 7 or Vista from showing up in the Start Up disk options in the preference settings.

So the only option is to go through the boot menu selection but unfortunately I am using the Apple wireless keyboard and holding the option key down doesn't bring up the boot selection screen. Is there anything I can do ... or am I forced to use a USB keyboard for now ?

For the record I have the Wireless Keyboard and Mighty mouse paired and working in Windows 7 ( The keyboard has occasional lag from the first keystroke input but is fine from then ) Its just that I get no response from keystrokes during boot up.

Windows On Mac :: Apple ALum Wireless Keyboard Windows XP Drivers?
Having problems with the Audio, Brightness and eject button keys after windows xp automatic update. Buttons sometimes work after a shutdown and restart, sometimes not. Tried the Bootcamp 2.1 reinstall but didnt help much. Where the heck can i get drivers for the bloody thing?

Apologies for the lingo but im quite frustrated. it takes apple yrs to fix one problem but only for another to appear.

I already gave up on Realtek doing something about their crappy sound quality (despite releasing a new driver every two weeks) and the mighty mouse freezing after hibernation unless u press the left button like a man possesed!!

Mac Pro :: Number Pad Keys Aren't Recognized?
I am unable to get the number pad keys (on the right side of the keyboard) to work on either of my Apple Keyboards (wireless and wired aluminum). The number pad keys function when I move the keyboards over to my G5, so I think the keyboards themselves are not the problem. Neither keyboard has a number lock key.

Intel Mac :: Volume Keys Not Working On Apple 10-key Keyboard?
After the cat spilled a glass of water on my wireless keyboard I had to get a new one. I asked the folks at my local Apple store both over the phone and in person if the 10-key keyboard (non-wireless) they were going to sell me was compatible with Mac OS X version 10.5.8 (I think I'm Leopard) and they assured me it was. When I hit the volume keys, it initially used the assigned function of the F10, F11, and F12 keys (manipulated the windows and dashboard). I removed those key assignments through system preferences but now the volume keys do absolutely nothing. I tried looking for volume controls through the assignments but couldn't even find them to assign the F10, F11 and F12 keys to them.

Mac Bluetooth :: Apple Wireless Keyboard Modifier Keys Remapping Not Working?
From the Keyboard Preferences->Modifier Keys... pane re-mapping "caps" to "command" does not work with the paired Apple Wireless Keyboard (Model No A1314). The mapping DOES work on the MacBook Air keyboard itself, just not on the Apple Wireless Keyboard. The "Select keyboard" pulldown shows that the settings are the same for both devices. I have tried:

・deleting bluetooth device, pairing
・power-off/remove batteries, reconnect
・reboot after settings changes
・deleting/editing /Developer/Applications/Utilities/Property List Editor.app/Contents/MacOS/Property List Editor ./Library/Preferences/ByHost/.GlobalPreferences.*.plist

IMac Intel :: Bluetooth Number Pad - How To Know About It
I recently purchased a Microsoft Bluetooth Number Pad for my iMac. It works fine - except each time I use it after the number pad has been sleeping, the Keyboard Setup Assistant pops up and tells me that my keyboard (meaning the number pad) cannot be identified. If I close the screen, the number pad works fine until the next time that it wakes from standby. I am unable to complete the assistant because it wants me to press a button to the right of the left shift key. Since its a number pad, there is no shift key! Just in case, I've tried pushing each of the buttons on the number pad, but to no avail.

Windows On Mac :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Working On Bootcamp?
I've probably had Bootcamp running for almost a six months and last week I got on my Windows like normal. But to my dismay my trackpad, mouse, and keyboard were not responding. It just seems completely random since I didn't change anything or do anything different. Anyone have any solutions besides reinstalling?

Software :: Number Pad Doesnt Work On IMac G5 1.4?
my number pad on my keyboard doesnt work. I have a iMac G5 1.4

I know I didnt spill anything on it, because this happened on my sisters account on the computer, while mine still worked. Now mine doesnt work. I like using it, so Id like to gget it to work again.

When I try using the 10 numbers and the decimal on the keypad (everything else in that section of the keyboard works), the computer freezes, and i have to shut down.

Oh, and I recently started using the program Blender, and I noticed this problem during that program, so it might have something to do with that.

Windows On Mac :: Keyboard Driver Not Working Correctly With Certain Keys?
i've been trying to get 64-bit Windows 7 on my iMac by adding drivers one by one. The only driver that's giving me trouble is the keyboard one. The F-Keys do not work like they are supposed to. They are just the Windows default meaning the brightness keys don't change brightness and the sound keys don't change the sound. I have tried both the Leopard BootCamp drivers as well as the Snow Leopard BootCamp drivers and neither have changed how the F-Keys behave. Is there another driver i'm missing that I have to install?

Also i'm using the Apple Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard for whatever that's worth.
