    How did you type this question if the keys don't work? Do you have a USB keyboard attached? or on-screen keyboard?

    You can either just use a USB keyboard and then check your keyboard settings under Control Panel and make sure you select a QWERTY (US) or QWERTY(UK) depending if it has a $ or GBP symbol on it.

    If that does not fix it, then it may dirt lodged under the keys affecting the area. You will need to check the laptop service manual to see how to remove the keypad area and clean it.

    If that does not work, the USB keyboard / Turning on On-Screen keyboard from Accessibility options may be the only way forward as parts for the laptop may not be available.

    I am CURRENTLY typing this using an HP laptop with a Walmart keyboard plugged into the hdmi plug because...yea...the keys just stopped working. Maybe not a reliable brand after all?

     The Power button, and then immediately press the Esc key repeatedly to open the Startup Menu.If the Startup Menu screen does not open, the integrated keyboard hardware is not working Remove all devices in the Keyboards category, and then restart the computer.

    Mkae sure there is no sticky residue, under the keys, if so. Clean the keyboard.

    This is common on HP laptops.  My Elitebook 2760p was upgraded from Win7 to 10 and then many of the keys like yours ( zxc/ty,. Enter and some others) failed to work, and sometimes type by themselves.  I replaced the internal keyboard, but no help with that. 

    I can use a USB keyboard just fine, though.As well, the Mute/Unmute cycles unpredictably.I have searched for 8 months on line, found out a lot.  This problem has been going on for years.  Only good lead was a person who said there was a conflict between keyboard driver and some process in the Task Manager.

    Next I am going to try undoing the Win7 to 10 update.
