    I am currently in mousepad mode and the num button is no longer turning on the numbers pad. I am not aware of anything I did to turn it off and cannot find anything to turn it back on. And yes, I am aware of F3. That does nothing now. Had the laptop about a month now and never had issues toggling the keypad on/off. Any ideas to try?

    It now works with the reinstall of the driver. The num key seems to not work all the time now but it eventually switches.

    I would also recommend updating the EC firmware from the MSI website, we have seen this help!

    I'm already at the current BIOS version, and I have to mash the NumLock button several times to get the number pad to light up. Quite annoying as I usually end up using the regular number keys.

    Almost like the thing has to warm up, because from that point on I can switch between numpad and touchpad with just light pressure. Until I restart the system :( and I'm back to mashing the NumLock button.
