My Dell has the numbers on these keys which I have to hold the Fn key to use. It's odd because it has the normal row of numbers too.

The way it works is. 1, The number lock on the generic usb number pad is on. 2, hold down both the alt key and the fn key down wile typing in the ascii code on the generic usb number pad. Then let go the alt and fn keys and the item that goes to the code that was typed will appear next to the cursor.
