Windows 7: My decimal separator key cannot produce a comma

My decimal separator key cannot produce a comma

I have my EXCEL all configured to use the comma as decimal separator; and so is my regional configuration.
Now, since I bought this new portable, with the standard separate numerical keyboard, and Windows 7,
the decimal separator key in the numerical keyboard only and always produces a dot, and the figure gets read as text. To have the comma, and the figure read as a number, I have to use the comma key in the main alphanumerical part of the keyboard.
Thanks for any help-

Try going into Control Panel>Region and Language>Addition Settings. Something could have gotten messed up.

Hope this helps,
