Suddenly my keyboard types the wrong letter or doesn't show anything at all. Also the wheel on my wireless mouse is shring the page when I scroll down.

eg. When I type "n" I jump to a new page in Word.

Is this a desktop or laptop? It sounds like the Ctl key on your keyboard is stuck on. Does the "n" create a new blank document?

It is a laptop and yes it goes to a new blank document.

Ctrl is stuck down most likely. Control + scroll wheel will zoom the page in and out. Control + N will create a new document/page.

Check both Ctl keys and make sure they aren't physically stuck. If they seem fine you can replace the keyboard. It isn't too difficult on most laptops.
