NOTE: If you press NumLock on the keyboard of certain Dell portable computers, this makes different characters available when you type. To make the keyboard revert to its standard functionality, press FUNCTION+NumLock.
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Regional and Language Options.
3. Click the Languages tab.
4. In the Text Services and Input languages pane, click Details.
5. In the Installed Services pane, click any keyboard listed other than US, and then click Remove.
6. When the confirmation message appears, click Yes.
7. Repeat step 5 until all listed keyboards except US are removed.

If it continues replace the keyboard. Sometimes spilled liquids on the keyboard will do this.

Or find the driver here.


Or thy these.
