Either the keyboard has failed or someone inadvertently spilled something sticky on it. Sorry to have to be blunt about it but that is just the way it is. 

 

You can order a new keyboard and replace it yourself if you feel you have the competence to do that. Of course not everyone is comfortable with doing that themselves. Alternatively you can take your laptop to a shop with certified technicians so they can do it for you. 

 

If you have had your laptop less than a year then it should still be in the warranty period. You can contact HP Total Care here.

 

best regards,

HP Tech Support gave me the same annoying answer. I found a solution on my own, quite by accident, and am sharing it here in hopes I can save someone the trouble of arguing with HP Tech Support: I plugged in an external (USB) keyboard, and rebooted the notebook. Everything's working like new again. Whew.

Hello,I have a HP pavilion g series- which I wish I'd never bought to be honest! But my left click button doesnt click any more and even more annoyingly my enter button still 'clicks' but doesnt work. Do I need to do what you did? And if so, is it pretty simple? I'm not very computer minded I'm afraid...
