Hello 2bzefran,

Thank you for visiting the Microsoft Answers Community.

First, try using a keyboard from another system to rule out the possibility of a malfunctioning keyboard.

Second, take a look under Start  > type access in the search box > click ease of access center

Under Explore all settings, click Make the keyboard easier to use

Look under Make it easier to type > uncheck box for Turn on filter keys

Hope this helps
