Laptop keyboard prints wrong characters

\015 I have a Dell laptop. Yesterday I hooked up an external keyboard. When I removed the keyboard, the laptop keyboard now displays incorrect characters when pressed. Symbols for some letters, numbers for others. I have to plug the ext. keyboard back in to use the laptop. Any suggestions how I can get the laptop keyboard to function properly?\015
