      I am uncertain what caused the issue, sounds like something on the keypad failed. Since it only affects the number keys, it doesn’t sound like the entire keyboard went bad. I don’t know the cost to replace a keyboard, but unless you are mechanically inclined I would suggest to take the laptop to a repair shop to evaluate and estimate the cost to fix. I doubt it is a software issue if the other keys work without trouble.

      Have you tried plugging in an external keyboard to see if it works without the same issue ??
