Have you spilled anything onto the keyboard?

Try plugging in and using a USB keyboard.

If the characters are appearing as normal when using the USB keyboard then perhaps the laptops's keyboard has gone faulty or there may be a key which is stuck down in the operated position. Check each key to see if it returns to the normal position when pressed and released

Thank you for your reply.

Didn't spill anything.

Night before everything was fine, and next morning started acting funny.

My solution: formatted the computer (and strangely enough it kept doing the same thing). Only when I updated windows the keyboard started working fine again.

Definitely a drivers issue, but can't understand why it happened.

Not a fan of Samsung Series 9 (not the first time I have these type of issues with this machine).

For now its solved.
