Hi. I have a vaio svs13a1s9es model and f2,f3,f4,f5,f,f7,f8,f9,f10,f11,f12,delete,insert,numlock and fn does not work. Also some keys have wrong fuctions for example f3 opens search, So far i have tried unistalling and reinstalling the keyboard drivers, doing registry defrag, enabling some services,going through windows and sony care troubleshoot and opening windows in safe mode but still nothing works....

Answer

Assumming its not software then, its possible the ribbon cable is loose or damaged or the keyboard is defective.

looks like you'll need to part strip the laptop to get at the keyboard connection. Videos and instruction can be found on google.
