Question about Computers & Internet
The keys on my HP Laptop do not work.
Plug in an external Desktop USB keyboard to test. If keys work, use that external keyboard, to go to control panel and check/adjust some keyboard parameters. Some virus change some of those parameters to "disable" your keyboard.
Otherwise order a replacement laptop keyboard from HP spares/

Not trying to insult your intelligence but are you sure you plugged the keyboard cable all the way and even into the slot and locked it in place. I have had issues where the contacts were not all the way seated in the slot and not fully locked in and the computer knew the keyboard but I had lost partial function. Below is the Dell diagnostics manual for running start up test on your laptop. If your installation is the original it should have a diagnostics partition on it. These steps will show you how to access and run. Just copy and paste the below in your internet browser address bar, hit enter, you can also print it to follow along when the laptop powers down. Good luck,, ParrotHead PC Repair
