Hi Jay,

My guess is that your keyboard needs cleaning or replacing. To rule out a hardware
problem, try using a different keyboard and see if the Left Shift Key works on it.

For future reference you might want to take a look at the Accessability
Options for keyboards. These are the options used to modify how input
and output is handled for those people who deal with physical disabilities.

Start>> Settings>> Control Panel>> Accessibility Options>> Keyboard Tab
