ThinkPad Edge E520 Numeric/Numbers Keypad Problems/Issues

The 5, 4, 2, 1, 0 and Numeric Enter key on the Lenovo numeric keypad itself works only half the time (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't).

 

When I use an external keyboard, there isn't any problems.

 

I just got this computer about 2 weeks ago too.

@FrankyG,

Try updating the BIOS, if you already have the latest, I suggest to send your laptop to the service center for them to get it checked.

Thanks JameZ!

 

They said that they are sending me a replacement keyboard to install myself.  I just hope I don't mess anything up when I open up my computer.

 

I was wondering if there are safety steps I need to follow when I do this.
