I remember way back in the PC days there was some key you pressed on the keyboard to switch between numberic mode and cursor mode on the keyboard.
I'm surprised the keyboard didn't work.
Proably cheapest solution is to buy an apple keyboard.
There are keyboard remapping programs around, but Tiger is old so there would be extra searching.
Here is one example... I do not know how much work this would be.
Simply use DoubleCommand software. It is a free program
Thank you for the quick reply. Yes, I saw the program while searching in Google, but I'm not sure that it can activate the numeric keypad. At least, I didn't spot any such option when looking at the photos. The Mac is not mine, so I cannot just try things. I have to be sure that something works before I go to the customer. Of course, there is nothing wrong with the keyboard. When connected in a PC, the numlock works as expected. It only doesn't work on the Mac. I also read somewhere that I should disable mouse keys, but I don't remember seeing any such feature in Settings. Anyone can guide my please?
Thank you again.
Here is an app to tell you the keycodes.

That's under universal access. [ handn't thought of that. ]
