Double check that everything is US-english for the keyboard. go to START>>>control panel>>>regional and language options. Make sure everything in the first screen is go to the LANGUAGE tab go to DETAILS. look to see what the keyboard language is. If set on US change it to something the settings go back in and change it to US then save again. Check everything else make sure its US.

Has anything been spilled into the keyboard? Has anyone eaten over or near the keyboard?

Normally whenever we purchase a new netbook or a laptop computer manufacturers install a trail version of microsoft office products, It seems that even your computer manufacturer has installed a trail version of office on your computer which you can use for a period of 60 days and after which you have to purchase the product.

Symbols gone crazy

The keyboard appears to be defective, but if you replace it and you still have issues, then the matrixing chip on the motherboard is bad and you will have to change the motherboard as well. Let me know, and vote.
