It could be your mouse settings. Your keyboard is set to move the cursor with your number pad.

To Slove this issue

  1. Go to System > Preferences > Accessibility > Keyboard Accessibility
  2. Select [x] Enable keyboard accessibility features
  3. Go to the tab Mouse Keys and deselect [ ] Enable keyboard accessibility features.
