Title:

Keyboard is typing the wrong character.

Text:

My keyboard on my MacBook keeps typing a Nordic symbol å instead of the letter a. Also, the delete key is deleting whole words instead of just one letter. I cannot get any help from Apple support. This just started out of the blue, I didn't change anything, I was typing an email and about half way through, all of a sudden I am getting this å everytime I type the letter a. Upgraded to snow leopard, but that didn't help either. Help!

+=== Update (12/04/2013) ===
+
+I have never resolved the issue, and have stopped using the Mac. It appears that this is a hardware issue not a software issue, Sorry I can't be of anymore help.
