It sounds like your keyboard mapping is set for either another locality or another language.

Go to Control Panel/Region and Language/Keyboards and languages then click on 'Change keyboards' and see if your keyboard is correctly set for your location. If you are in the USA the keyboard should be set for US and if you're not in the US you can click the 'Add' button to add your location.
