Logitech MK520 wireless keyboard and mouse problems

I just purchased a new wireless mouse and keyboard.  Very quick installation.  Just plug and go!  No so much!
I can't get the number keypad to work at all.  SetPoint software is installed Win7-64 bit.
The Num Lock On and Off displays nicely on screen, but hitting the number keys does nothing.  I searched the web and found dozens of people with similar problems but no one solution for this.
Mouse and keyboard seem ok, but the number keys are dormant.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I would try unloading the setpoint software and just using the windows drivers and see if that works.

Nobus,  After two exchanges, it is obviously not the keyboard, Otherwise i would just try a different manufacturer.   Thanks for your suggestion, but the problem is with my computer.  If it works on another computer, what did I gain?  I am looking for a setting or a configuration or something that will allow the keypad to work.

did you test the keyboard on another pc?  from your post - i'm not sure.
afaik - a keyboard works -  or it does not  -barring a key or 2 apart that don't work; not a whole section of it

Shadowless,  That did it.  Sometimes following the directions of the manufacture is not always the best approach.
Thanks
