Turn off the Wi-Fi and check if shift keys work.

Let me know if it works for you.

Solution:

 

I had the same issue after months of searching, I accidentally came across this solution or workaround - I turned off the wifi on my laptop and WOOF the shift key started to work.

 

Let me know if the same works for you.

Re: Both Shift keys are not working

SOLVED!!!
I have no idea what I did. But just a minute ago, my shift keys did not work. then I did some combination with ctrl fn shift and alt but i have no idea what cause it was out of frustration.
but if it helps, i believe we somehow did an fn lock. and if you unlock it everything goes back to normal. i think this because normally i have to press f12 to turn off wifi but this time i had to press fn + f12. so if you know how to unlock the fn then that seems to be the problem!
Hope I helped!
