The numeric keypad on my Dell Dimension E520 suddenly stopped working. It won't work on Calculator or Notepad or any other program.
It doesn't appear to be a hardware problem because the software keyboard in the Ease of Access has the same problem.
Switching num lock on and off doesn't make any difference.

I've got Vista Business Edition. The only thing I've installed recently is my Amazon Kindle.

Have you tried uninstalling the keyboard drivers via Device Manager...and then rebooting?
