The first thing to try is another keyboard, assuming that this is a desktop.

Too true, yes first thing, shut down, yank keyboard, turn upside down, shake gently, then the canned air...input, try...then if no joy, try another keyboard...As you typically say, simple things first...the old KISS principle.

If gentle does not work.

When I take a keyboard from the office I head out the door since what comes out is nothing I want near me.

Also if the gentle approach fails I try the not gentle spank.

Assuming you are using an Office suite, Such as Microsoft, Open or Libre,
check the AutoCorrect settings. Someone may have modified your Autocorrect setting to change the input.

Otherwise, it's the keyboard's fault. Unless there is a program running in the background that could be hijacking the keyboard.
