    Looks like you need to install the dell quickset
    driver first to enable the keyboard functions.
    Then when you hit F2,it should show an icon
    in the bottom right of the screen.
    Accessing that icon should give you the option to
    turn it on or off.

    You should be able to find all the downloads
    you need at the dell website support section.
    I am not seeing a 5010 listed at dell.
    Try entering the service tag number here and
    serching for it.

    Should be on the bottom of the laptop.
    Oops,found it.
    It's an inspirion 15 (N5010).
    It only lists windows 7 and vista 64 bit for drivers.

    There is a quickset program under applications.
    The bluetooth driver is under network.
    Make sure to install the quickset driver first.
