It sounds like you have a FilterKeys options checked that is disabling your Shift keys.

Try going to Start -> Control Panel -> Accessibility Options
Uncheck all boxes in the Keyboard tab (StickKeys, FilterKeys and ToggleKeys) and click Apply or OK.

Try your Shift keys now.

Shift keys don't work.Both shift works for some letters but not many. Caps lock works, but not much good for symbols on number keys


This is probably due to a mismatch between the keyboard hardware (what is written on the keys) and the keyboard settings. For example if the keyboard is standard QWERTY US English and the setting is for French, pressing some keys will give the wrong output on the screen. You can correct this in the Control Panel / Regional Settings, Language settings (depending on your operating system). For your main language, say it is English, choose the appropriate keyboard, OK/Save etc. Good luck.

HOW TO GET MY LAPTOP TO STOP USING THE PINK ALTCAR


I found this on another website and it worked for me. Good luck.

Okay, I know this is an old question but when i searched for the same problem recently, it was the nearest I could find. So in case others are having the same problem:

The Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. The alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

How to use Alt Car key?


I am guessing the Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. On these models, it seems the alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

hth!

Shift key not working


You have 2 Shift keys on the keyboard. If the other shift key is working then the shift key that is not working is defective. You should consider replacing the keyboard on your laptop. There is no setting on Windows that can disable the shift key.

**Note : If both Shift keys are not working, Try to check if sticky keys feature on windows is on. Sticky keys should be disabled. To disable sticky keys, Click on start and Go into control panel > Accessibility Options, and under keyboard there is sticky keys. Remove the tick and click apply and OK.

**If "Use Sticky Keys" is unchecked, that means sticky keys is disabled.

My shift key wont work at all


Holding down both shift keys at the same time wont work. Chances are you have a dead key. use the other shift key instead. if a program is mapped to use specifically that shift key, remap it to the opposite one.

If you are using a desktop, replace the keyboard; if it is a laptop replace it if you can yourself, otherwise, call a computer technician.
