The "0" on my keyboard number pad stopped working. The one on the right hand side.

All the other numbers work fine.

Not sure if it's something i did, or just need a new keyboard. 

It a desktop Dell Inspiron 3252. Keyboard came with the tower.

Suggestions????

If one key alone stops working, then the key itself is at fault. Grab another keyboard.

(Internally, it might be feasible to correct whatever has caused it, but a keyboard is a very cheap device...)

And keyboards, fully functional ones, are almost literally "a dime a dozen" at a great many thrift stores.  Wireless ones are even showing up these days.

I just tried it again.  Wanted to make sure it was still not working.

It's working now.

I must have done something wrong.

Restarting the computer must have fixed it.

At least I don't have to get a new keyboard.

I hope.

It must have been the keyboard.

Picked up one from Best buy. $14.00

So far all is good.
