Windows 7: No Scroll lock on laptop

No Scroll lock on laptop

So, I have no scroll lock on my Dell XPS. This would be no problem for the average user, however I play a game where the scroll lock is VERY important and it cannot be keybinded to any other key. I NEED the scroll lock button. I have an FN key as well. and yes there really is NO scroll lock key including all of the FN combinations so please don't tell me there is. If you're curious it of the exact system it is a Dell XPS L702X

Is there a registry entry, or a third party program I can use to switch any of my other keys into functioning as the scroll lock key?

I'd appreciate any help, thanks!

Why is the scroll lock enabling on its own?
I have four HP 4530s that the scoll lock will automatically turn on by it self. From time to time you we can use the function key and scoll button to turn it off, but there has been times where a complete reboot is necessary. Any ideas on what could be causing this issue and how to fix it?
