You need to check which keyboard is installed for your type of keyboard.
You can find this through the language and Input Settings in the Control Panel. It mus be way off to be doing what its doing.
If its only just happened try a system restore.
That may take the setting back to a time when they were correct.
Also try plugging in an external keyboard so you can rule out the laptops physical keyboard.
