Thank you
You have enabled the NumLock function of yuour keyboard.

Find the NumLck key (normally on the top row of keys) and press Fn (Function) and NumLck at the same time. That will toggle OFF the numLock setting.

Good Luck

Thank you, xpcman 116

Usually the Lenovo laptop come with the IDVault installed which does it.
in order to solve this Go to your control panel and remove the the application IDVault on remove program. It will help.
thank you it really works for me
I too have a Lenovo laptop with the same problem. All other fixes did not work. Removing IDVault solved the problem. Thanks for the help. I would never have thought that would be the fix. Another reason junkware should not be loaded on a new computer.
Thank you
