2 W S X Keys are not working..

Welcome to the HP Support Community @kulankit97, 

 

I understand that you are having an issue with some of the keys on your HP Pavilion 15-n020ax Notebook PC.

 

You had mentioned that the 2, W, S, and X keys are not working but an external keyboard works fine. 

 

Have you tried going into Safe Mode to see if the problems persist in there?

Have you tried Performing a Hard Reset or Forced Reset?

Have you done a hardware test?

Have you updated all of your drivers? 

 

Please try the follow troubleshooting steps to see if this resolves the situation:  

  • Start
  • Search for Device Manager
  • Open Device Manager from the Search results.
  • Click View
  • Show Hidden Devices.
  • Click the arrow next to Keyboards.
  • Right-click the keyboard device name.
  • Select Uninstall.
  • Continue removing device names in the Keyboards category until all device names have been uninstalled.
  • Restart the notebook twice. 
  • Try the keys to see if they work. 

I found a troubleshooting document for you to try also called Notebook Keyboard Troubleshooting. Please make sure to follow the steps in this document. 

 

Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers that need updating.

 

This is a great question other customers may also be wondering about. When we have come to a resolution, please share what worked for you with others by marking this post as an Accepted Solution. If you would like to show you appreciation for my efforts today, please take a second to click the Thumbs Up button below. 

 

If you require further assistance, I would be more than happy to continue to help you! Please re-post with the results of the troubleshooting and answers to the questions above. 

 

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Hope these steps help!

Looking forward to your reply.

In Keyboards section I have 5 devices installed.. Should I uninstall all of them?

 

I gone through the troubleshooting guide also but it is not useful in my condition..

 

I have already installed HP Support Assistant.. It is very useful but in my case it cant help..

 

 

P.S - I actually want to tell you that I have enabled Power On Password in BIOS menu.. and the keys dosent even work for typing the power on password... 

 

Now tell me what to do..

Looking forward to your reply..

Hi there! 

 

I read your post and looked at the screenshots. Yes, please uninstall all of the devices listed under keyboards and then restart your Notebook twice. 

 

It looks like everything is working properly otherwise. I don't see any red x's or exclamation marks in the device manager screenshots that you had provided. 

 

Please let me know if the steps above resolve the issue for you. 

 

Thanks!

Hey!

 

If you have uninstalled all of the devices, unplugged all devices, cleaned out any dirt from the keyboard and still having an issue, please use the following link to create yourself a case number:

Step 1. Open link: www.hp.com/contacthp/

Step 2. Enter Product number or select to auto detect
Step 3. Scroll down to "Still need help? Complete the form to select your contact options"
Step 4. Scroll down and click on: HP contact options - click on Get phone number

Case number and phone number appear.

They will be happy to assist you immediately to see if you may need to replace the keyboard. 

 

I hope that this helps! 

Have a great day!

I struggled with this same ptoblem on my HP Chromebook. What worked for me was removing the keyboard and first removing then reconnecting the the keyboard tracking ribbon to the circuit board.
