You need a flat bladded thin screw driver to prise off the long cover
the runs along the top of the keyboard and just below the screen. Make
sure you remove any screws at the back of the screen hinges, and along
the top above the battery housing (you need a small posidrive
screwdriver for this). You will find there is a screw on the underside
of the laptop that holds the keyboard in place from underneath, plus
two or three very small screws on the top at the screen end. When all
the screws are removed you can lift the keyboard up from the screen end
and pull (gently) away from the touch-pad end. Tilt it up and you will
see the keyboard data ribbon, don't twist it or pull it as you will
hope this helps

SOURCE: changing keyboard on laptop
Putting the keys back in place can be a tough job especially if the cradles have snapped, your probably better off replacing the whole keyboard as it will be cheaper for you.
As it happens HP laptop keyboards are really easy to remove, if you look under the laptop you will find 2 screws clearly marked with keyboard symbols next to them, unscrew them and turn the laptop right way up and open the lid. At the top of the keyboard look closely for 4 small plastic slide locks, just slide them back and you can proceed to remove the keyboard, be very carefull at this point because there is a delicate ribbon cable which you have to remove from the motherboard.
Once removed your good to go!!!! just follow the instuctions in reverse to put it back together.
Kind regards and Merry Christmas

SOURCE: Keyboard Keys Mismatch error
this could be caused by a couple of different issues:
1st Depending on the operating system you have loaded, it could have the wrong keyboard type or emulation selected.
2nd The keyboard or its cable could be bad, it will not necessarily quit until it goes completely out.
