Nothing works unless I hold down the shift key

Please plug in an external keyboard (available at Best Buy; bring PC, use a demo keyboard), THEN turn power on.
Do you need to hold the shift key down on the EXTERNAL keyboard?
If no then the laptop keyboard reeds to be removed, cleaned and carefully replaced to test.
If problem still exists it needs to be replaced UNLESS there is a kink in the internal cable, which the keyboard connects with.
Not a complicated replacement, tedious on some, but five minutes should do it. Getting the keyboard OUT and IN is where the labor may lie. Some are very simple, others: out with the hard drive, out with the ram, and all those 50 or so screws... sticking to the bottom on one's shoes...
Please return and let me know! There are other things to try!

Keys stick

I memory serves me the wheelwriter keyboard is a sealed unit. to remove the housing look for two slots on each side of the lower part of the upper case insert a slim screw drriver into the slot to release the top from the bottom case.

You probably need a new keyboard. Check and make sure the 2 keyboard connectors are secure in the main board. Open the top cover and look down by the keyboard and you will see the connectors. Keyboard costs about $ 75.00 to repair. Plus labor for a repairman to replace it.
