I would appreciate some assistance ...
I've plugged in an external keyboard into my Macbook Pro, and if I wan't to type a <, it always becomes a instead. What could be wrong?

Does the corresponding key on the external keyboard match the key on your laptop?

I have a windows keyboard plugged into mine, and the @ and " are switched, amongst others.
