OK guys, I bought a USB Keypad made by E-Power and it works---on my desktop comuter, running WinXP sp1. However, on my notebook, brand new with sp2, all the keys work correctly EXCEPT the numbers (<esc>,/,*,-,+,<delete>, and <enter>). I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the driver, copying the driver file from my desktop computer and replacing the one on the notebook, searching online, rolling back the driver, you get the idea... The file is usbccgp.sys. The model number on the keypad is HTK-101U. Any ideas? Why would this work on my old computer and not my newer one? As a side note, the dialog box that comes up on my desktop says that the software hasn't passed Windows logo testing. I have to choose to install anyways. On my notebook, I don't even get a dialog box... :whistling:

Drivers for keyboards are fragile and problematic. Do you really need the driver at all ? Try unloading the driver and testing the keypad keys without it.

Does your keyboard have an "F-Lock" key (or something similar) on it ? If so, try pushing it once to see if the keypad works then. If not then push F-Lock once more to return the keyboard to its original state.
