Windows 7: Help restoring alt keys to original functions

Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit
 
 

Lance1, thank you. Reading the last thing, though - does it look like a registry problem at all? I'm having doubts. If I can assign the left-alt function to another key and it works, then whatever has the functionality is intact. The problem is assigning it to THAT key. And it's not the keyboard, as I replaced it. It's something in the middle, somewhere after the keyboard but before the registry section containing left-alt functionality.
What could that be?
And why would I be having trouble re-mapping something onto the right-windows key?
