If only 1 light flashes, first check your memory (RAM) and make sure it is seated properly in the slot. If you have some more memory you can install just for a test, that may help. If it is no the memory it is a motherboard or processor issue that will require professional service.

SOURCE: dell laptop vostro 1510 flashing 9 on the keyboard

That is an indication of either a Video or an LCD failure. If under warranty, contact Dell Tech Support.
If out of warranty, remove all drives, battery, wireless card memory and see if error indications change. If they do, add a ram module back and see if the system posts. If it does, add items back one at a time until you ID the faulty one.
If there no changes, the the motherboard most likely has failed.
You can run the troubleshooter to see if the tool gives you more detailed information

SOURCE: i want my dell vostro 1510 function key turn off

Ok, it's handy to keep but ok. Make sure you press and hold these keys till it changes. Number Lock+Fn+Delete and it should turn it off.
Hope this helped. Good Luck!

Try reseating RAM. The flashing lights indicates a fault on the motherboard. I read online where this fixed many laptops but not all and not mine. I suspect the motherboard is dead in my case. May be same for you but first try reseating RAM, hard drive and maybe the processor.
