Question about Sony PEGA KB11 Keyboard
Hi, got similar problem... keys 2,4,0,R,Y,U doesn't work too. I have asked a local technician here in the Philippines and told me that I got to options, first, I replace and buy a new keypad. Second, I use a wireless keypad or the one with usb. The second option is cheaper but not that convenient though.

Hi, its easy to fix. you have your keyboard layout set to US Layout, ie americans have a couple of keys in reverse from ours. All you have to do is this Windows XP Start, Control Panel, regional & language settings, change all US Settings, in there to UK British, And it will fix your problems :-) if its windows 98/ME ETC start, control panel, Keyboard, and change the US Keyboard setting to UK British, u usually have to set it twice, ie select uk, apply it, then do it again before it changes... If you dont get it sorted will guide u though it just email me.. All the best John email@example.com

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.

SOURCE: Key board not working properly
The keybard probably has defective switches. They may have gotten wet or dirt in them. Not worth trying to fix. Buy new one...
They can be had off eBay for about $20 for brand new ones. Have a shop or competent person familiar with electronics work on it if you don''t feel capable.
The keyboard is USUALLY fairly easy to remove... USUALLY the second item to come off on a laptop when opening it.
