Many of the keys on my Vaio notebook will not register unless pressed very hard or at an awkward angle. The OC functions normal otherwise, and the keyboard looks fine too. But many of the keys on the keyboard don't work as they should. I've tried cleaning it, but no help.

You have selected the Number Lock which turns the RHS keyboard into a number pad. The NumLk key also doubles up as a ScrLk key, it is located near the F12 function key. When you press this key it will turn off the Number Lock, also the NumLk LED light will switch off.
This should be a simple fix, look at your keyboard, you should have a function key and if you look at the number pads above the top row of letters there should be either a numerical symbol or a key pad, your keyb board is simply using several keys as an extended numerical keypad. If you look closely at the letters there are small numbers on them. To fix hold down function key and pressing the keypad button. You can also try pressing the number lock.
The keyboard controller maybe faulty. Connect a PS2 or USB keyboard to see if it functions correctly. If the external keyboard works normally then the laptop keyboard is faulty and can be replaced.
If the external keyboards do not work normally then it is a motherboard problem.
i guess f1, f2, and all the function keys are given with added fn key in the left corner of the keypad. search for the blue icon with fn in the keypad. that should solve it. press fn along with the key you want to use.
Recommend to confirm the computer functions properly with a USB keyboard connected.
If it functions correctly with the external keyboard, most likely the notebook's keyboard is damaged or possibly disconnected. To fix either problem disassembly by a technician to take care of the repairs would be required.
sir refer to you manual.. if i'm not mistaken the most laptops have integrated the numeric keypads with the alpha keypads... depending on what your laptop is there is a button that you will press toggle with the two functions... its just like the caps lock key that you will press to get all caps...
Depending on how hard it is to remove your laptop keyboard (be careful, don't do this if you don't know how, some laptops are easier than others) you might be able to take the whole keyboard off (not just individual keys). If you can do this, you could try holding it underwater for a few moments, pressing keys and getting them to "unstick." I know normal desktop keyboards you can just throw in the dishwasher (on gentle, if you have it) but that will ruin your laptop... If it's a popular laptop you might be able to pickup an extra keyboard on ebay or something, but you'd have to know how to replace the keyboard. I guess you could take it to the nearest laptop repair place and see how cheap you could get them to do it. =\
your keyboard driver may be corrupt, go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down list to keyboards, click '+' sign, right click on your keyboard and select uninstal.
Restart your notebook and the keyboard and drivers will be reinstalled automatically and should be as normal, but check for any updated drivers at Sony:-
