Two keys don't work


Shift and enter are two heavily used keys amd wear faster than other keys. On some keyboards keys can be pried up to check the connection. Generally these items have become disposable these days and you can pick up wireless keyboards for less than $20

Some of the keys are not working like - shift, 4,5,6. And key 'p' takes too much time to repeat


Most likely something was spilled in the keyboard or is not getting a good connection at the USB port. Try swapping ports, if that doesn't fix it, try cleaning the keyboard (unplugged). If all else fails replace, these are fairly cheap keyboards.

My shift keys hate me


Your keyboard is in essence one big circuit board and that circuit can have failures like any other piece of equipment. If no other keys are failing or giving you issues than it most likely is just with that circuit, the shift keys are generally tied together on the same circuit unless they are programmed differently which can be done in certain games. You may have to replace the keyboard with a new one to rectify this situation. It's not a cable not seated well issue and I don't believe it is a driver issue. Good luck

Shift key not working


try to use virtual keyboard in start/allprograms/accessories/accessibility/on screen keyboard. And press shift. If that problem still occur when you use on screen keyboard (osk), unplug your keyboard, and try to use osk again. If that's still occur, surely you got virus or setting error

Shift Keys not working properly on ACER notebook


The 8042 keyboard controller has been integrated into one chip with other I/O functions so I doubt you can replace it as a single IC and I'm afraid that is what has failed. It is an extremely rare failure but I guess it has to happen some time. The keyboard is kind of a polled matrix so it only takes the failure of a single line to bollix things up.
I think what you are talking about here is a motherboard exchange or repair.

Problems with the keyboard


Sticky keys can sometimes be fixed by hitting right shift key 10 times quickly (I'm not lying!!), and or the culprit key (x) the same way. Try that and if it doesn't work, reboot and type. If it continues, please try another keyboard.

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.
