Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart if this fails to fix the problem

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell what file has been corrupted or missing you might be able to work your way through problem if you are unable to find a solution

I would say it would be best to just replace the whole keyboard. It's not hard, just time-consuming, & you can get a good price for one on eBay.

Hp 9695c wont boot only ht HP banner shows but wont go to the initialization


Press and hold down Shift key, when you hear the beep, until system boots.
If you dont time it right you will get a keyboard error, dont worry, just press F1 key and immediately hold your Shift key again.
Your system should boot into basic mode, then you need to check your system for virus or last software that may have been installed.
