Sounds like it is time to replace the keyboard. Pretty easy to do. Replacement keyboards are around $20 on ebay. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1501/en/sm_en/keyboard.htm#wp1111863

Function keys


Enter BIOS by pressing F2 or DEL or F10 (try all), and see if there is a Function key option. Change it, save and exit. If everything else is working fine, you can also try to push and hold Fn key and then press a function key.

I have a dell inspirion 1501 and it just shuts off.


There could be several possiblities for your shutdown issue. Run diags Fn+Power button, see if system power off running diags or in the BIOS. If the system remains running in both, shutdown issue is more than likely software. If it doesnshut off in diags.BIOS, try plowing out the cooling intake and exhaust vents with compressed air. Make sure system is on a hard flat surface where can circulate around the system and the fan is operational. If the fan doesn't work, it will need replacement.
If the system will run in the safe mode then software is likely for the issue and a good antivirus or anti-malware program my be of help

Fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working


Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.
