Some keys on my laptop just stopped working. Spacebar, M and the next 3 symbols keys after the M key. I tried updating the laptop and the keys still don’t work. Please how do I fix this? Thanks
@Omarabia Welcome to HP Community!
I understand that you are facing issues with some of the keys are not working.
In that case, please perform the keyboard test and let us know the result.
1. Power off the PC and make sure that it is completely powered off.
2. Press the power button and the moment you press the power button immediately start tapping F2 key, you should see the system diagnostics screen.
3. Look for the component test, under that all the hardware will be listed, please choose Keyboard and initiate the quick test.
Note: If it fails it will generate a 24 digits alphanumeric failure id, please capture that.
