✔ Best Answer
To isolate the problem, try/borrow an USB keyboard.

by using the key combination alt gr + Shift.
It's possible that some software was loaded that changes the Keyboard to something else like Dorvork
Start the system in Safe Mode log in to the Admin Account and then open the Control Panel and change the Location to your area and the language/Keyboard to US English or whatever your local area is.
if none works try john's suggestion
