Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet
Here are the keys you find on athe keyboard of a Windows laptop. From left to right.
CTRL Control Key
Fn Fn-ness key that controls the function keys(Esc, F1, to F12). For example on the Fujitsu I am using right now Fn+F3 mutes the volume of the speaker., Fn+F6 dims the screen display. The Fx keys have some icons to help you remember what the Fn+Fx key combinations do.
Left of Fn key us a Windows logo icon. The key brings up the Start menu.
The ALT is used in combination with CTRL or with other numeric keys (on a numeric keypad) to enter some characters that the keyboard configuration may not have.
Right of Space bar is the ALTChar (or ALT Gr) also.to enter some characters`.
Right of ALT Gr/Cr is the Windows menus key. Depending on the window that is active (has the focus) the Menu key displays a drop down or pop up menu from which to select one of the available options.
Then you have the Right CTRL key. Play with them to see what they do.

You can try reseating the keyboard connector. If that doesn’t work, the keyboard needs to be replaced. To reseat the keyboard connector, follow this link: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins5100/en/sm/keyboard.htm#1084976
Be sure to remove AC power and the Battery.

if you go to the control panel, to hardware, in the keyboard section you should be able to uninstall the internal keyboards driver which will stop it working.

Perhaps you can check your manual. Many notebook keys do not function as expected. If you do not have the manual, you may download one here:

Although there is no num lock button on the keyboard, it can still be turned on - either via external keyboard or the onscreen keyboard in windows. However, the keyboard on this notebook does not have keys which are dedicated to become number keys when numlock is on, so it wouldn't impact usage of the keyboard in the slightest.
onscreen keyboard is located here
