You have a "brand new" defective Vaio keyboard or a key is stuck
Pounding on the keyboard probably voided your warranty and possibly
caused additional damage to the components located beneath (Laptop
keyboards are very thin). I have seen (other brand) keypads fail
because of heavy handed usage found a weak spot in the key trace
layout and caused it to fail after many repeated heavy key strokes on
a particular key (cut through the trace), a layout change fixed this.
