Shift key has to be pressed firmly to work.

The shift key doesn't work unless you press it firmly. It's only the left shift key. Can you help?

From what you tell me, it sounds to me like the key or the arms/"rubber-hinges" that holds the button is worn out or broken.

Contact your local dealer or the place where you ordered the laptop.

Shift key not functioning.


You have selected the wrong keyboard language.
Go to Control Panel select Region and Language. Change the keyboard to your layout. (Probably US).

How to use Alt Car key?


I am guessing the Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. On these models, it seems the alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

hth!

SHIFT KEYS NOT WORKING PROPERLY


Please try to deactivate the Fn (function) key. That will help you get rid of your problem. Press Fn key + Numlock key once and try again. You can also try pressing the Fn key once and type letters in any word processor program with the key combination everytime you press the Fn key once. E.g. open the notepad, press Fn once and after that press ) with Shift.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Shift key has to be pressed firmly to work.


If there were more that one key that has failed it would indicate that you have a keyboard controller chip that has failed or that the connector from the keyboard to the motherboard is not making proper contact. You may get that key to work by pressing that key very firmly.

You may be able to fix the faulty key by removing that key and spraying the faulty key contact with electronic spray cleaner whilst pressing the key pad several times. It may not work because it may be sealed and the cleaning fluid may not be able to penetrate the key contacts.

Then the only thing to do is to buy and fit a new keyboard from the manufacrurer.,
