Try downloading NumLock.exe.

dl.dropboxusercontent.com/.../NumLock.exe

By double clicking this file you should be able to use the "normal" number keys in combination with ALT to get any ASCII character.Watch the video posted previously to understand how it works.

The file itself just contains and runs the autohokey-code(see video) without having to install autohotkey.

If you don't trust the file you can still create it yourself by following the video instructions.

I mentioned that in my video.You either have to quit the program (right click on the green"H"-icon in the taskbar  and click exit) or you can toggle the behaviour of the keys by pressing the "AppsKey".

Note: not all laptops come with an "Appskey" in that case you will have to exit the program.

On my laptop inspiron 1545 the AppsKey is located next to the left "Arrow"-key.
