I'm not sure if I accidentally pressed something that made my keyboard like this but everytime I press shift, it enters "=" or ".\" instead of capitalizing letters. When I also press capslock, there is a sound coming out and I can't capitalize any letters. I tried looking for a solution on the internet but no luck! HELP PLEASE!

What if you try to use an external keyboard, does the problem persists?

everything is fine when I use an external keyboard. I have a feeling that there might be something wrong with my laptop's keyboard, but I don't even know what to do.

Yes, your laptop keyboard must be replaced.

I see, I guess that's inevitable. Any ideas on how much I need to spend on getting my laptop keyboard replaced? THe brand is ASUS btw.
