Personally, I don't see the sense this is a old keyboard and HP didn't even release Windows 7 drivers for it, forget about Windows 10. This means that none of the special function keys or media control will work.
You can try tighten up the cable behind the monitor or disconnect the cables and reconnect. You can try another monitor to see whether the mother board and the cable works. Some settings in BIOS may be changed to use on-board video card (the one embeded on the mother board, which is connected on the ports out of the card slots) on your computer so make sure it is using the graphic card that is connected to the monitor. For keyboard, if may be mechanic issue on port or keys or cables if you will not see anything wrong about the keyboard. You can try to use another USB port if it is an USB keyboard or use a USB/PS2 converter if the PS2 keyboard port is not working. If it is a PS2 keyboard, you can check whether the pins are bent and reconnect it. Sometimes that helps. If it is a wireless keyboard, then you will need to fix the monitor and then maybe fix the driver and stuff. You can remove all objects beneath the keys by putting it upside down and shake it or use a blower.
Try the keyboard and mouse on anothe system. if it works fine the on board PS2 port is most likely bad. Buy a USB keyboard and mouse in plalace of the PS2 keybaord and mouse or change the motherbord. If the keyboard and mouse is bad replace with a good one.
Believe it or not, if you have a floppy drive in your computer, try unplugging it and disconnecting the data ribbon. Many times, damaged floppy drives can short out motherboard functions and even prevent computers from powering up. If that doesn't fix it, then get a usb keyboard and mouse set (wireless would be fine) or borrow some, and see if they work. If they do, then the power outage damaged the PS2 ports.
try F8 to got to the startup menu, and choose last known good configuration, use a ps2 keyboard or an adaptor and nothing that needs the USB.SYS Driver to function, and you should be able to reinstall Windows, if last known good configuration doesn't work, i hope this helps, please give good rating
you can't get rid of the PS2 because thats where it looks for the mouse, being usb it's not listed in dxdiag, there should be a mouse menu from your mouse and keyboard driver, or in control panel to tweak the Dpi
