After replacing damaged keypad with a new one, I have swapped the Fn key functions with Ctrl keys. May know how to fix it?

You might want to install some drivers.

Did you physically change the keys? Or did you use the BIOS to accomplish this?

Keys can not be changed physically, because they are different sizes, in the BIOS can not see such an option :(

Possibly the wrong model? Check that the Dell Part numbers match.

This is possible on Lenovos and I wouldn't be surprised if you can in a newer Dell to. Update the BIOS and check again, also reset to defaults and see if it makes any changes.
