Not all keys produce the right letter

This is a new refurbished laptop T440S. Most of the keys are fine but Fn + f8 does not change whether the mousepad works or not, the hash key produces a £, the @ key produces " and the " key produces @. There may be other problems which I haven't found yet. I'm using the UK keyboard layout. However, if I go to the US layout the keys seem to work OK (but not the Fn + f8 for deactivating the mousepad. Any ideas?

Re: Not all keys produce the right letter

Does the keyboard itself look like a U.S. or UK keyboard?  How was windows installed?  (what layout chosen during setup)
