keyboard and touchpad not working properly

Hi! @Darlyn_Domingo, Thanks for stopping by HP forums!

I understand keyboard and touchpad are not functioning on your PC.

Don't worry I'd like to help you out.

Did you make any software or hardware changes on your PC?

Have you tried checking with an external keyboard or mouse?

As you mentioned you did reset your PC but the issue still persists, It certainly seems to be a hardware issue but try few steps recommended below.

Try booting into recovery manager, Turn on your PC keep tapping the F11 key you will boot into recovery manager.

Click troubleshoot from the list, Select advanced options and select command prompt from the list.

Try typing in the keys and check if you are able to type.

If the keys are not working in the command prompt it is a hardware issue with the keyboard.

Try updating BIOS and touchpad drivers on your PC using HP support assistant and check if it helps.

Refer this article to know how to use HP support assistant.

If the issue still persists after trying out the steps, run system diagnostics on your PC for keyboard and touchpad and let me know the results.

Refer this article to know how to run system diagnostics on your PC.

Please let me know the outcome.

Have a beautiful day ahead! :)
