    perhaps, the number keypad has been enabled.

    if it has, you should see a newly lit led in the area between the top of the keyboard and the bottom of the screen that looks like a 9 with a box around it.

    if that's the case, then, according to the manual, you can press the Fn key and the F11 key at the same time to disable it.

    the manual for your laptop is available from Dell here:
