@kiwi11 

Based on your comments, I would suspect more than keyboard issues, I would also suspect hard drive issues -- because the HP Logo display is done using the firmware of the BIOS chip and the drive has not yet been read,  If the startup does not get beyond that to the Windows login screen, that implies serious problems with the hard drive.

 

Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try for the keyboard:  Notebook Keyboard Troubleshooting (Windows 10, 😎 | HP® Customer Support

 

If your PC is new enough to support UEFI, you can use these steps to test the hard drive: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00439024

If not, to check the drive you have to follow these steps:
1) Press Esc key repeatedly, several times a second, while rebooting the laptop. Do NOT hold the key down, just press it over and over.
2) Eventually, you will see an HP Startup Menu -- that will look similar to the image below ...

3) press the Function key for testing the hard drive (usually F2) and let it run.

Please report back the test results.

Sounds like either it's trying to boot off the HDD, but something is missing or corrupt and it's rebooting, or with some of your keyboard issues it's constantly sending a CTRL+ALT+DEL command to reboot the pc (unlikely)

Try tapping F11 when turning on the laptop and run a full HP system recovery.

OK, so if there's no option for HDD, then perhaps the HDD has failed to the point that the system is not recognising it.

Just to clarify - If you turn the system off then on and straight away keep tapping F2. There's NO option to run HDD diags??
