I have a Toshiba Satellite P55W laptop.  Some of the keys do not always register (a, left shift, s, b, n).  If I squeeze the case near the letter I want as I type the letter, they work.  Does that still sound like a bad keyboard or could something else be up?

It sounds like a well-worn keyboard, and not at all uncommon.

 

I would definitely try giving the thing a good blast under the keys with canned air to see if that might fix it, though.  If it doesn't then an external keyboard or a keyboard replacement should do the trick.

So the fact that the keyboard works when I apply pressure to the case does no indicate that the keyboard is ok and something else is wrong?

No, it does not.
