Look on your keyboard. On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard. You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination would be [Fn+F1] keys.

It should be a simple fix. Start your laptop and pay attention to the screen. Press the F12 key (or F11) to enter "SETUP" then find the NUMLOC command and make sure that its DISABLED or OFF. This will turn this option off andyou will only be able to use the number's keys on the top of the keyboard. Be careful when entering SETUP. You don't want to change anything you don't have to.

Have your hardware and its all recommended drivers installed properly? If so then you might have to contact the dealer as your system software might be under critical condition (as it seem from your problem that your system might be under the effect of viruses or the system directory and drive might be full or any other disk might be full.) If so then update your genuine antivirus and remove it. This might solve your problem.

Certain letters are not working

When keys go faulty the entire keypad needs replacing. You can't replace individual keys. I would suggest contacting dell and ordering a new keyboard, it's an easy fix:
