    Must of the time issues like this are due to a keyboard going bad but sometimes not.

    Try this:

    go start > run then type in regedit and hit ok

    Go to this key



    Control\KeyBoard Layout

    Now go to file > export and save the export as backup.reg

    now look for "Scancode Map". If you find it delete it. Then restart windows. If this didn't fix the problum them its most likely the keyboard its self so open backup.reg to restore the settings.
