Hmm, if the numpad is actually a part of the laptop then i suggest you to conact their support line even if its ****. the dell bios is extremely strict and doesnt have many options.

I have a keyboard problem - typing a question mark etc produces weird characters - looks like a numlock problem but my Dell XPS 15 has no numlock key - thanks in advance, driving me nuts :)


There should be a num lock key on you computer. You may have to push the fn key located by the windows and the alt key on the bottom left of your computer. And this will give keys other functions. So look again for num lock in small righting on one of the keys

Alt+0241

On Windows, the Alt key functions as a modifier like the Shift key. To make special characters, hold down the Alt key and type in the numbers from the numeric keypad. Note that on the some small keyboards (e.g. laptop keybaords) the “numeric keypad” is found by pressing the NumLock key and then looking for the keys on your keyboard that double as numeric keypad keys when in NumLock mode.

Unlock numeric key pad on lap top


your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.

How do i activate and lock my Fn keys


Unlike previous models, The 1545 has no imbedded Numeric Keypad, so there is no NUMLOCK option.
For numerics, you will have to use the numbers above the QWERTY row.
SCROLL LOCK was also eliminated from the 1545 keyboard (Legacy item, seldom used)
If you need a numeric keypad and/or Scroll Lock, then an external keyboard may be an option.

Try pressing the numlock key in the upper right part of your keyboard. Chances are it's turned off and therefore the numeric keypad will not work.

Num Lk won't work


Press F2 when booting to access the BIOS and look for the numlock setting. There are options as to how the numlock behaves. Change this setting to your preference, save your changes and restart.
