Answers :

You may try bellow
\015\0121) put a USB keyboard if it works ok means keyboard manager IC chips ok, go next
\015\0122) take away laptop keyboard and pull out KB cable and clean the pins then plug back to test if stil error,
\015\0123) your KB some keys shortage inside by dirty or damped, try to clean or dry KB keys using hair dryer and brush, not fixed
\015\012final you might change your KB.
Your keyboard setting in Control panel regional and language options is probably set to US International.
This option allow you to create every special character using combined keys see this page for MS instruction>
If you have a localized keybord (Portuguise, Brazilian or else) you can get the symbol corresponding with keys if you configure the exact keyboard instead of US international.
Of course for same language you can configure multiple keybord.
You can also use for every language the On screen Keyboard you get in Start/program/accessories/ accessibility
