Enabling wifi stops the keyboard to function

HP Recommended
HP 15-R203TU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear Community, 

This has been occurring since past 3-4 years - I think probably after I got an update to Windows 10 from 8.1.


Problem : When I enable the WiFi on the laptop - the keyboard stops functioning.
When the wifi is off - the keyboard is functional.
Also, the wifi key has stopped working since then too. I need to turn on/off wifi from the taskbar.

I hope the community can help me sort this thing out.
Regards.
Huzefa

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/p...

 

HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook

 

  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also ensure Windows is up to date.

 

Select the Start  button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available

 

Keep me posted how it goes

 

Thank you and have a wonderful day 😊

Hi,

Its still the same. not solved.
I only formatted the partition with windows - not all my data.
