laptop keyboard types wrong characters

Specs: Windows XP
Hi,
suddenly the laptop started typing wrong words. I checked keyboard layout, it was English US. I even tried Ctrl + Shift and Alt + Shift, but nothing is happening.
If I type small letters it types Capital letters, sometimes the same type numbers....if I type 1,2,3,4 it types !,@,#,$ respectively. Even though Numslock is also on.

Even I tried external USB keyboard in the laptop, it is the same problem. At last, even I formatted the laptop and installed windows 7 again, same problem.

Try reloading the driver for the keyboard, or all drivers from mfg. site.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
