Volume up stuck and constantly raising volume

HP Recommended
HP ENVY x360 m6 Convertible
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Either the F8 key or volume up on the side of my laptop is stuck and the volume raising to 100 keeps poping up on  screen, making it not possible to mute or lower the volume. 

I've tried resetting and updating the sound drivers and running the troubleshooter for audio, but neither of those worked because I think the physical key got stuck somewhere. Is there a way to just disable these keys? I can just use my headphones or mouse over volume if I want to change it.
