You can reset the keys be reinstalling the keyboard driver.  Go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager.   Open the + next to keyboard and delete the driver. Restart the computer and Windows will reinstall the driver.

Try powering off the computer. Then restart.  This may reset the keyboard.

If no joy, go to Control Panel > Accessibility and uncheck everything.
