OK, just to make sure: you're on the Dell, not using VNC to remote 
control it? What happens if you kill the VNC server? Does that fix 
the problem?

OK, I'm a bit at a loss here. Have you tried re-plugging the 
keyboard? Closing the X-session and re-logging in? Change to a 
virtual terminal (e.g. Ctrl-Alt-F2) and use the USB keyboard to get 
back (Alt-F7)? Does an on-screen keyboard work?
