Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! 🙂 Good day! How are you? 🙂 I see that the computer’s keyboard does not work correctly. I will be delighted to assist t you here. 🙂
Stupendous effort on diagnosing the issue correctly. It is always a privilege to work with customers that have superlative technical skills. 🙂 Kudos to you for that. 🙂 We at HP greatly value your relationship with us and I take it as a privilege to share this platform with you. 🙂
First off, we need to isolate the issue to being hardware or software related.
Please check in the command prompt to isolate correctly if the issue is hardware or software related.
Power down the unit. When you power it back up, immediately tap the F11 key gently several times.
It takes you to recovery manager. Here please select the option “Troubleshoot”. Then please select “Advanced options “ and “command prompt”
Type all the keyboard characters in this black window especially the keys that do not work correctly.
If F11 does not take you to recovery manager, please keep tapping the “ESC” gently several times the instant you power on the unit. It takes you to the startup menu and you could press F11 from there to go to recovery manager.
If all the keys work correctly here, the issue could be software related. Otherwise, there is an issue either with the keyboard, or the keyboard controllers on the motherboard. In this case please contact HP phone support. If the unit is under warranty, repair services should be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. You could look up the unit’s warranty by visiting this link: http://support.hp.com/gb-en/checkwarranty/ and select the country of purchase and follow the on-screen instructions Link to visit HP phone support: http://hp.com/contacthp Please select the country of purchase and follow the on-screen instructions.
If it is deduced as water spillage, there may be a charge for repairing the unit.
