It should be a simple fix. Start your laptop and pay attention to the screen. Press the F12 key (or F11) to enter "SETUP" then find the NUMLOC command and make sure that its DISABLED or OFF. This will turn this option off andyou will only be able to use the number's keys on the top of the keyboard. Be careful when entering SETUP. You don't want to change anything you don't have to.
You don't have to buy a whole new keyboard to replace few keys.
Try taking off the key cap and its retainer clips (plastic pieces underneath the key cap).

How to Install a Replacement Keyboard on Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Computer You may need:
---Be careful to not break off any of the plastic tabs on the keys as they are difficult to replace.---
Turn the computer off and slide the tip of the screwdriver in the
notch on the right side of the hinge cover (the plastic section above
the keyboard). Slide the hinge cover up and remove it from the
computer, exposing a series of bolts. Unscrew the bolts and remove them.
Pull up on the edge of the keyboard and slide it forward toward the
display. Slide the keyboard all the way out of the computer case slowly.
Unhook the flex cable from the computer board to disconnect it from the computer.
Slide the new keyboard into place, connecting the flex cable first.
Screw down the edge of the keyboard with the 4 bolts from before and replace the key cover.
Power up the computer and see how your new keyboard works!
what you can try to do is to test an external monitor. If it works fine, try to check for any stuck key on the keyboard and any foreign objects. If all is well, you can request a replacement keyboard from dell if your system is still within warranty.
You need to open up the laptop and clean the keyboard connections,be very very careful as stuff will try and go every where when you open laptop and start lifting the keyboard pad, while you have the rubber backing off, check and clean your keys. this may or may not work. if not try changing the keys out with others on your keyboard. this will let you know for sure if it the contact circuit control is working or if its something else.
