Have you recently re-installed windows or any operating system? Laptop keyboards take special drivers since they have keys that do multiple things, like the Fn key. The drivers are needed so the computer knows what to do when you press these buttons. You can try to download and install a driver from the link below and see if it fixes your problem. 
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON%202200&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

From this page you can select your operating system and update your drivers. However i do not see one for the keyboard directly so you may need a new one installed but at least this way you can update all your drivers and find out for sure. Just make sure that you don't have the number lock on before you replace the keyoard. (padlock with a number inside it) look for the icon with a led on under or around it.

My numeral key are not working[123456789 right side of key bord]


Step 1:
On some laptops it may be difficult to locate and activate the "Num Lock" key. Depending on the laptop, it may be hidden as a function where you have to press two keys. Most of the time, a laptop keyboard is just like a full desktop computer keyboard and it has a "Num Lock" key on it. Most people do not realize the "Num Lock" key is on their laptop keyboard because it barely serves a purpose without a full numeric keypad.

Press the "Num Lock" key on the laptop at the top, right of the keyboard. Press the "Num Lock" key and the "Fn" key simultaneously if the above does not work. Press "Fn" and "F11" simultaneously on the keyboard to activate the "Num Lock" function. Some laptops, like Toshiba, do have a "Num Lock" key. The shortcut for G3 Mac laptops it is "F5," and on G4 Mac laptops it is "F6."

Compaq CQ60 some keys not working


The keyboard maybe faulty.
Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.
If this external keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the laptop motherboard is faulty and it would not be worth repairing as this is an old model laptop.

The product key on the back of your laptop is more then likely for your operating system e.g XP/Vista/Windows 7 you will need to purchase a product key for works most manufactures install it without a product key on a trial version when they sell the laptop.
