Im not aware of anyplaces that sell just indiviual keys you can buy a real cheap crappy keyboard and take the shift keyy off of that or you could get one from the junkyard just make sure that it fits otherwise you risk dmaging the keyboard.. hope this works and dont hesitate to ask me anyother questions =)

The shift button popped out and I am not sure of how to put it back. I have the sony model pcg-7h1L/


Hi there,
Some keys will break off when they pop out, others just have to be pressed back in place. If it popped off it should just be able to pop back in without any problems. If it broke off, you'll need to get the keyboard repaired or get yourself a new one.

How do i reattach the shift key on my sony vaio it seems impossible


Indeed it does. When one of the keys on my laptop popped off I tried for hours to reattach it to no avail. Taking it to a repair clinic I was told that they couldn't reattach a single key either and that a new keyboard would have to be ordered and installed at a cost of almost half the cost of the original laptop purchase price. Fortunately, the laptop was still under warranty so the repair was made in a few days for free.

So, where does this leave you? If your computer is still covered by warranty contact Sony Customer Service. If the warranty is expired, a new USB keyboard can be purchased very inexpensively wherever computers and computer accessories are sold.

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.

Cannot use letters of my laptop unless use fn key but not capital


You need to press the NumLock key to get the keyboard to get back to alphanumeric - it has a symbol of a lock with a number 1 on it. A LED should also go out/icon in your tool tray should disappear as well.

Keyboard key issue in laptop


The metal bar needs to be clipped on to the plastic shift key. Look under the plastic shift key and you can see recess where the metal bar fits. Place the shift key over these recess and push down until it clicks into place.
