If I understand correctly, the laptop keyboard doesn't work and the replacement keyboard didn't work. So suggesting yet another keyboard probably isn't the best thing right of the bat.

@OP, does the replacement keyboard work on another computer? Did the replacement work originally? Do they not work at all or do they not work in certain programs?

Check your cable connection from keyboard to motherboard, clean the contacts with a bit of alcohol/electrical contact cleaner.

Before we suggest the OP runs out and buys a new keyboard, there are a few things to try with the old.

I never said there was a setting to turn those keys off.




Also after re-reading the original post, I missed the word "replacement" and instead was thinking you bought a USB keyboard from HP. After seeing this, then my previous post is basically null and void. Instead try using a USB keyboard (as suggested) and see if it works - though the brand is really indifferent and it can just be one borrowed from another computer. I assume that since it's a laptop, you carry it around with you and keeping a full size keyboard with it is not very practical.

If the USB keyboard works, then there is likely a hardware issue on the system board.
