Most likely your computer is using the generic keyboard driver which only makes the basic keyboard keys work; the numbers, letters, arrows keys and the F function keys.

Since you are using an order operating system, chances are it doesn't have native drivers for all the keys in your dell keyboard, especially the multimedia keys.

The other system that you were using most likely has a newer operating system. To resolve your problem, go to Dell's website and search for your keyboard's driver there.

Just get it installed and all your keyboard keys should work, and you should be able to make full use of it and perhaps have additional configuration options that the Dell driver or utility may add.
