Check to see if the "Fn" button is stuck down, it sounds like the keystrokes you are describing are some shortcut keys to provide adjusting functions for the laptop facilities. Turn off the laptop, disconnect the power adaptor, disconnect mouse etc... and pick up the laptop and give it a gentle tap from behind the machine, and also go through all of the keys and try to press them and you may find one or more are stuck down (in particular the Fn key or similar).

the Genius SlimStar C100 Keyboard Keys is not working then you can
use the On Screen KeyBoard from the Accessibility in Windows Vista or
Ease of Access in Windows7. You have to replace it with new keyboard.
You have too many running programs in the background. Like for example antivirus, firewall, msn, weatherbug, just to name a few. I wouldn't disable the firewall, or antivirus. That would be the last thing.
The difference in the @ and " symbols occurs between US and UK keyboards, where UK keyboards have the " symbol on the "2" key and US keyboards have the @ symbol on the "2" key.
Regardless of what physical drawing you have on the keyboard, you can change the actions of the keys by setting up the appropriate US or UK keyboard layout in Windows.
First, determine whether you'd prefer a US or a UK layout. In the US layout, pressing SHIFT+2 will write @. In the UK layout, pressing it will write ".
Now, from the Start menu, select Settings and go to Control Panel. Once there, search for "Regional and Language Options". Under the "Languages" tab there is a button labeled "Details". Press it, and a new window opens with the keyboard layouts. Use the "Add" button to select the keyboard layout you want (English, US or UK, Qwerty - not Dvorak), then Remove your old keyboard layout.

Yeah, I was kind of confused about this too. Apparently, on the base of
the mouse, there is a red reset button. Press it, while
simultaneously pressing the black reset button on the base of the USB-connected charger. The laser light should become steady after a moment,
indicating that the mouse is in sync with the laptop. If the laser is
blinking, however, then the mouse is attempting to become synced. You
may have to press the reset button multiple times. Hope this helps.
