The letters o l . & , will not type on my Sony VAIO PCG-8112L. What to do?

The keys have probably gone bad on the keyboard. I'd recommend you just get a new one. Replacing a keyboard is actually pretty easy, and you can get the part from online for fairly inexpensive. Just make sure the models match because all VAIO keyboards are not alike. There are several tutorial videos if you need them on youtube for simple repair work. Don't be daunted, it usually just involves a few screws and popping the keyboard out. This isn't anything you should pay someone to do unless absolutely necessary.

Arrow key in my laptop keyboard was pull out help!

If you are unable to align the key above the place of removal and get it to work, very low chances that you will be able to fix it back in place (The pivot lever below the key is usually broken) - Better off paying for a replacement keyboard.
