Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R52 Notebook ?

Work with an external numeric keyboard

\015 I have an IBM R52 and because there is no numeric keypad I attached one via USB.But everytime I use it the NumLock enables the numeric function of the main keypad. So I can't use the letters on the right hand side of the keyboard until I switch out the NumLock which also disables the external Keypad.Is it possible to have the external Keypad working and not to enable the NumLock-function of the main Keypad at the same time (a colleague has the lenovo R500 - there it is possible)?\015

Answers :

I'm afraid that is not possible. The only way to overcome this is to get a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port and type using the full size keyboard.
