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 auctionscotland@tiscali.co.uk

Go to download the drivers that you require from the Sony WEB site, to their support/download page. Make sure you input your model laptop and select the Windows OS that matches your installed operating system.

SOURCE: Hi my sony vaio vgn-sr13gn, shift key does not

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.

The keyboard on my boss' sony vaio VGN TZ 340 seems to be locked. At least it doesn't work. Cleaning around it didn't work. Could she have unintentionally hit a key or function key that would cause this...


no there is no key that does that, your boss spilled somthing on it and thus it doesnt work, could need a new keyboard or just connection to motherboard.

My shift keys do not work on my sony vaio. I have a VGN-N130G. Neither shift key works, however, the CAPS LOCK works. It was fine yesterday. I did restart the computer and it did not fix the problem.


sad to say but if you want you can replace it with new one. or you can use a usb keyboard. or just let it be until some of the keys become defective. its your choice.

SONY VAIO CMOS BATTERY LOCATION


Correction...

The CMOS battery is located under the system board, and is not accessible from under the keyboard.

The keyboard has to be removed in order to change the CMOS batter, (another reason why I don't like Sony laptops.)

Below is the batter I just pulled from a user's VGN-FS660\W 892cbd5.jpg
