I have a NEC versa note vx laptop and are having some issues with the key board.

I have completely removed the operating system from the hard drive so now only working in dos to try and resolve the problem.

Keys which dont work:
Shift
6
y

I have plugged an external keyboard and all is ok.

Could it be a problem with the mainboard? I have made sure the ribbon on the board is plugged in correctly.

Try removing those keys (carefully) to clean them. Could be an accumulation of dust etc
