I can't type on my keyboard (I am using a usb keyboard at the moment) because it doesn't respond correctly
For example I type h = ih
I press enter = 5;
I type L = 5l;k
N = ,n
B = 2b
v = 0
r = 8r
T = /t
If I press = the screen goes full
If I press backspace I get a forward slash
The numbers are all fine so are a few letters
This just started happing an hour ago and I couldn't find any solutions.
Please help.

Sorry, your keyboard probably needs to be replaced.

You should first test with an external USB keyboard. If it works correctly then you have verified that the internal keyboard needs to be replaced. Replacement keyboards can often be found on Ebay.

Good Luck
