Normally, this problem occurs if you language setting is different from your Keyboard language. All you need to do is change the setting of your keyboard language from Regional language settings from the control panel. Normally if your PC is pure US English, you should use English (US).

Hope this helps.
If it does please vote. Thanks!

    Then, it means your Keyboard might be not US standard, try English(UK).

You are most likely typing in the key for an incorrect edition of Windows. Make sure that you have installed the correct version that corresponds with the key on the back of your computer. A key for Windows 7 Home Premium will not work for a computer that has Windows 7 Professional installed and vice versa.

Keys on keyboard not working properly

Go to control panel, regional and language settings, ensure that the correct keyboard is selected (A UK keyboard and USA English selected or a USA keyboard with UK English selected is often a cause)

On qwerty keyboard the key '' is typing @ and vice versa.

Those characters are reversed between the USA and UK versions of the keyboard layout.

Letters typing as another

Probably a mechanical problem with your keyboard. Try connecting an external keyboard to see if the problem is corrected. If that works, you will probably need to get hold of a different keyboard for your laptop.
