    Is it a new sestem? or an old one? while POST (Power On Self Test) check is the num lock LED blinking?
    Anyway if its a new system then you must be having a warranty go contact the service center address and contact numbers are in their brochure they had provided you while you purchased the system and tell them your problem. athey will ask a few questions and answer them. They will send engineer to you.
    If you dont have warrnty contact a qualified service engineer and fix your trouble.
    Thank you.

    Do not worry, it is nothing. These kind of issues happen in the case of notebook or laptops. Why because, the keypads of notebooks are far more sensitive than that of a normal personal desktop computer. Sometimes due to small issues keys of the keyboard get affected and stop working properly. Now what you need to do is, change the num lock key. If you take it to your service center then the volunteers over there, will help you in this regard and make the necessary changes. If your guarantee period is still there you will not be required to pay for this. But if it is finished then they will charge you some money, for their service.

    Hello Friend,

    A laptop is a sensitive device compared to a desktop. It seems to me there is some hardware issue involved in your problem. Somehow you Dell numl ock key is damaged or it is not working due to some technical issue. To sort out the issue you should visit your nearest Dell service centre and talk to the authorized technicain. He will first check your laptop and then tell you whether you have to change the num lock key or he can repair the existing key. If your laptop is new you will get full warranty cover otherwise you have to pay for the service. But still your problem will be over.
