Make sure one of the shift keys are not jammed.
The keyboard may have just died.
Install another keyboard and see if the problems goes away.
Make sure you do not have Windows Sticky Keys enabled.
If your keyboard came with some software try uninstalling it.
If that did not work reinstall it. (With reboots in between)
Good luck! :)

Did you try another keyboard? It sounds like it is broke.
Contact the manufacturer and tell them.
If it's under warranty you should be able to get another one.

Try updating your USB drivers. Also try another keyboard.
That will tell you if it is Windows.
