Dell Keyboar Problem -
This likely is one of two issues. A BIOS setting, and can be changed in the BIOS setup utility accessible at startup.
If you are sure you have no computer virus or a hardware conflict than you can modify this setting by editing the registry on the computer. Normally, the computer applies the user settings when the user logs on, but it uses the default user profile when it is first turned on, before the user has logged on. To turn this functionality off, the default user settings must be modified. The Keyboard entry contains user preferences as defined by choosing the Keyboard icon in Control Panel. Entries are found under this registry path:
InitialKeyboardIndicators REG_SZ Number set it default to 0.
* Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).
* Open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard (If the Keyboard key isn't there, add it.)
* Double-click the InitialKeyboardIndicators value on the right. (If it's not there, select New from the Edit menu, then String Value, and type InitialKeyboardIndicators for the name of the new value.)
* Change the value to any of the following:
0 - all indicators off
1 - Caps Lock on
2 - Num Lock on
4 - Scroll Lock on
Or, combine them by adding the corresponding values:
3 - Caps Lock and Num Lock on
5 - Caps Lock and Scroll Lock on
6 - Num Lock and Scroll Lock on
7 - Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock on
* Close the Registry Editor when you're done.
All the change should take effect when next time you start Windows.
