But there is a problem with its keyboard. Actually it works on windows correctly, but it stops working while pressings some keys meaning 5, 6,left control, plus, tilda and so forth.

Different systems have different layout of the Keyboard. Typically number of Keys or selecting the keyboard at install is the key to the functionality. You can try a usb keyboard to get around your problem. Also you can try to select a supported Keyboard via the command sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration and see if you can find the appropriate keyboard for your system and select it.
