    My MacBook Pro from 2009, just broke yesterday. It seems like the shift key is always pushed down. I've read a whole lot about it, and nothing seems to work. I've tried to lift the key off, and it still boots in safe mode. Tried pressing c or esc while booting, still boots in safe mode.

    I've Got Lion 10.7.4 ..

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Disconnect the keyboard flex cable internally. Connect a USB keyboard, then perform a PRAM reset by holding down the CMD+ALT+P+R keys, and pressing the power button. When it chimes twice, power it off, and reconnect everything :).
