Enter, backspace, delete, shift keys not working in sony vaio E series backlit keyboard with BIOS version R0170E5


At all? anything caught underneth them? Unsnapping keys is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Give that a try. if it's still not working check your device manager to be sure.

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.

Tea fell on the keyboard the second line of keys


No, it most probably cannot, keyboards are very inexpensive these days. They are all membrane keypads, underneath, and once liquid, get in between the layers, it is almost impossible to remove. A new KB is in order.

Hi my sony vaio vgn-sr13gn, shift key does not work at all. not even in Command promt. Both shift keys don't work. What can I do?


A friend of mine has the same problem and i stumbled on your question today. This problem occurred with the Vaio VGN-FZ11E, after very very modest usage, no scratches or damage visible whatsoever.

There's one option out there:

"I found that if you hold down both left and right shift key at the same time (did this for several seconds), it somehow solved the problem. Hopefully that fixed the issue. Also, go to control panel, click on accessibility options..in the keyboard tab, click on the settings buttons for sticky keys, filter keys and toggle keys and deselect the option to use shortcut..hopefully this will help you and other people that have had this problem."
Quoted from here

If that doesn't work, seems to me the remark of Benwabnick seems to be the solution, as posted below.

the contact underneath the shift key itself is starting to go bad. Its a common issue with sony laptops, the keys can wear out pretty quickly. You'll have to get another keyboard.

Certain keys won't function on keyboard


Could be that the connector from the keyboard to the mainboard is crooked. Try taking the keyboard off and wiggling the connector from the keyboard to the board so that it is a snugger fit.
