Keyboard is faulty.

HP Recommended

My keyboard is faulty, and keys such as backspace, enter and space bar won't work.

The only way I can type properly now is because I enabled onscreen keyboard. Other keys seem to work.

OK...

Here is the guide to help you with checking the keyboard:

After you have completed the troubleshooting,

If you want to replace the keyboard,

the information and instructions to do so are usually (most always) included in your computer's Service Guide.
