Keyboard typing wrong characters

I am having problems with my laptop keyboard.  When I press the backspace key it types *8.  When I press the space bar it types a series of characters.  The Enter key is the same way.  My on screen keyboard works fine.  What could it be??  I did a reformat and it did not correct it.

Try an external usb keyboard to see if it is the hardware problem. If not restore your system to an earlier good date.
