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

The CAPS, TAB,SHIFT and CTRL key does not work, How do I fix them?


try an external keyword for testing that those keys work on the external.
if they do, just replace the laptop keyboard.

if they do not work with an external keyboard, your laptop motherboard has a fault keyboard controller chip. these are not replaceable, and will require a new motherboard. Check your warranty status.

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.

Shift key has to be pressed firmly to work.


If there were more that one key that has failed it would indicate that you have a keyboard controller chip that has failed or that the connector from the keyboard to the motherboard is not making proper contact. You may get that key to work by pressing that key very firmly.

You may be able to fix the faulty key by removing that key and spraying the faulty key contact with electronic spray cleaner whilst pressing the key pad several times. It may not work because it may be sealed and the cleaning fluid may not be able to penetrate the key contacts.

Then the only thing to do is to buy and fit a new keyboard from the manufacrurer.,

7330GZ Gateway laptop keyboard doesn't work


There is one thing you can try. Uninstall the drivers for the keyboard from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the keyboard and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid the Shift key function has failed and the keyboard will need replaced in order to fix it.
