Old topic but maybe i'm not the only one to still try to fix a MBP 2010...

My keyboard has the LEFT SHIFT key permanently enabled due to liquid ingress, which forces startup without extensions. Here is a workaround if you can't replace your keyboard:

- if you press the LEFT CTRL key during the early stage of startup, it will cancel the effect of other stuck keys such as mine, and allow normal startup.

- then, you can use a Freeware called Karabiner to ''disable'' the failing key (you can also setup an alias key if needed).

On my side I received a replacement keyboard and will soon try to install it, now that my MBP with failing GPU does not crash anymore thanks to this thread: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/gpu-kernel-panic-in-mid-2010-whats-the-best-fix.1890097/
