I have a Dell D600 when I go to power it up the three keys next to the power button. The Num lock, cap lock and scroll lock all flash rapidly and then nothing. I suspect it's the cpu or could it be the motherboard?
I have one that does that periodically. Probably not the highest tech solution but I give the keyboard a robust slap just to the right of centre & this always does the trick. (Originally tried re-seating memory and CPU to no avail and in frustration gave it a slap & it worked!)

purple function key next to the ctrl key
press that down and hold
press the num lock (toggle)
press the scroll lk (toggle)
press white cap lock only
See if any of these change the lighted lock indicator.
I assume that was what you mentioned in a focus of the request
I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 pv and I am not sure what you mean by the "lock" key. There are 2 lock keys on the computer: Number lock - which doubles as the Scroll lock when combined with the "Fn" key. Either of these can be toggled on or off. To enable or disable, simply press the key. If the lock for Caps or Num is on, the led just left of the power button will be lit.
On the Inspiron 6000, behavior for the NUM lock can be set in the system set-up. I am assuming the issue you are having has to do with how the lock is configured in the setup. Try adjusting the behavior to see if this helps fix your problem.
If the Num lock is lit constant, and the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock keys are flashing, the system is reporting a memory error. Power off the system, remove the battery, and follow the user manual from support.dell.com to reseat the memory module(s). If the error persists, you may need to replace the memory and/or the system board of the portable.
