Question about Dell Inspiron XPS Gaming Mouse Pad KU170
My keypad of dell xps laptop is not working , kinda froze and when starting am getting a symbol numeric 9 with a lock sign...plz help
This means the number lock is on - in the upper right hand corner of the keyboard is a series of 4 keys. Far right is delete, then (from the right) insert, Prnt Scrn, and Num Lk. Hit the Num Lk key, and the number 9 with the padlock should shut off. Your keyboard should now work normally.
Any more problems, let me know!

Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.
You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"]
keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at
the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.
Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.
Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.
After you release all the keys alt symbol should be
entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really
enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine
near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case
- try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt".
That just might work.
