Question mark key doesn't work!!!!!!

I have an HP Pavilion s3700y and have the most bizarre problem.  The question mark key won't work, regardless of what sort of keyboard i use.  Right now i'm using the wired keyboard that came with the system, HP kb-0630.  however i've also used  microsoft and logitech wireless keyboards with the same result.  everything else works fine but when i press the shift key and then the question mark key, nothing happens.  the forward slash underneath works fine but the question mark key is dead. 

 

i'm running out of ways to write only declarative sentences and fear i will need to ask a question sooner or later.  know what i mean (ahhhhh!!!!!)

 

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also check if the Question mark works in the On-Screen Keyboard


Windows Vista/Windows 7:smileysurprised:pen On-Screen Keyboard by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking On-Screen Keyboard.

 

Windows XP: Open On-Screen Keyboard by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, Clicking Accessibility and then On-Screen keyboard.
