SOURCE: keyboard ctrl key not working
try another keyboard to check if there is something wrong with your os settings.
1. if it works with the new keyboard , your keyboard is the problem.
2. if it does not work w/ the new keyboard still the same problem, os settings in the keyboard is the problem

I met the same problem, and I fixed it.
For my own case, it is mainly a hardware malfunction happening at the data bus(the wide, plastic strand) connecting the keyboard to the mainboard.
I found that part of that strand was bent, so I squeezed it to keep it flat.
everything has been OK since I did that.

that means that the keyboard has been set to a different language. On my screen at the bottom right hand is a little keyboard icon and when i click on it it lets me scroll through US English, Canadian French and Canadian Multilingual Standard. If the keyboard is set to the Canadian French option (or whatever other option that is available on your keyboard in red characters) the number two button changes function.

Remove conncetion from the CPU and connect it again. or
Otherwise you need to try with another shift button and try it.
It might work.
Hope this helped.

Tips for a great answer:
When you were typing something you probably hit the left shift key along with ctrl. Hold down the left shift and ctrl for about 2-4 seconds and you should get your question mark back.
To make it so it never happens again, go to control panel / region and language / keyboards and languages / change keyboards. Remove every language except for English (us) or whatever region you want to use. Before you accept verify that your keyboard is on your preferred language before you do this. check and make sure you are getting the proper slash when you push slash, to change it if you're not getting the slash use the (left ctrl + left shift for 3-4 seconds) if that doesn't work then try alt and left shift.
