I am having the same problem.
No changing the numlock doesn't change anything.
Running Win 7 64 bit on Dell 1747 laptop, with i7 cpu and 8gb.
I have killed off all processes that I know, or gotten out of the program to see if I could figure out which process it is, but that hasn't worked.
I have the same notification showing on my 1747, windows 64 bit, i7, and pressing the "NumLk" above the keypad #7 turns the notification off (the white 9 on the black background)
I have Dell XPS 15z and my keyboard does not have a keypad nor a numlock key. How do I remove this icon?
quickset.exe which is specific to Dell. Not sure what the 9 means.
If you bring up task manager and kill quickset the 9 goes away.
Press the num lock key (may be in conjunction with the Fn key) and it will go away.

Hi, have anyone fixed it??? I already bought an XPS L502X and before I installed Win7 SP1 the blackbox icon for QuickSet appear. I talked with Dell Support Centre and they told this is a bug for this version of QuickSet.
I have an XPS 15 can just got this icon last week after owning this laptop for a year. Why have an icon that doesn't do anything. I have quickset keys above the keyboard. Looking into this I saw a newer bios so I downloaded and installed it. Icon went away. Thought I solved the problem. Next day it was back.
It's definitely the NumLk key on my new Dell Inspiron.
