Is it the right shift key? If so, it would be very strange to see two keys just stop working with no outside influence (like a spill).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Well, if the effected keys were grouped, I'd suspect it was a spill.
