Look on the keyboard on the F1-F10 or F1-F12 Keys. There's a lock icon usually there. One would have to use ALT or Fn (Function) key plus that key to turn off. Which one do you have 1525 or 1526?

Keypad does not work for Dell Inspiron 6400


1. Shut down the PC
2. Disconnect your network cable
3. wait 15 seconds
4. plug your network cable back in
5. boot back up

If this is a laptop or on a docking station, the process is a little different.

Good Luck!!!!!!!
