    F3 and my right shift key have suddenly become play/pause keys in addition to their original functions. My F8 doesn't really do anything anymore and does not even light up in Keyboard View.

    I've tried to use Sizzling Keys, and reset Keyboard Shortcuts but the problem still persists. It seems to affect most music playing programs (iTunes and Vox)

    I have a Macbook Model 5,2 and Mac OS X 10.5.8, if you can help it would really be appreciated as I use the shift key quite often!

    try to reset your PRAM settings (at least I think that's what it's called). Just google it, or search it in apple discussions. sometimes things just get weird haha. If you reset that, it'll reset your computers logic board and such. See if that helps
