Well, at the bottom of those fixes was this....if the fixes didn't work then your keyboard may be broken. There was a work around given, too.

But I think I would test using a different keyboard first.

 

QUOTE: As an alternative, use a macro scripting program such as AutoHotkey (open source and free) or AutoIt (freeware). Create macros that type the correct key value, then map them to the key that is producing the incorrect key value.

 

Maybe another member has another suggestion/ solution.

- There's an extremely simple solution for this: Just simply press the Shift & Ctrl key simultaneously. And your keyboord should be back to normal.
