This is little information to go off of Ricky.
But, try this:
Obtain a usb keyboard, startup the computer with the usb keyboard, and see if that works ok when you get to windows.
If that does work then right click computer, click manage, then click device manager.
Find the category for keyboards, expand that category and remove the entry for your onboard keyboard, and restart the computer.
Hopefully windows will reinstall the correct driver, and/or reset corrupt configuration settings so that it works.
if this doesn't work then it may be a hardware failure, you may need a new keyboard, or you may need to have the unit dissasembled far enough to check the connection of the keyboard to the motherboard.
This is assuming that its a laptop not a desktop.
Good luck and post back with your success or lack of.

It's usually possible to get around passwords, however it all depends on the Operating System = the older it is the easier it is (go Google ! .. Win XP/Vista = easy, Win 7/8 'possible', Win10, forget it)

How to add Windows 7 new keyboard shortcuts to Windows Vista.

If you have liked the new hotkey keyboard shortcuts which Windows 7 has introduced, you can add the same in Windows Vista or XP too

Download and use an app called Windows 7 Shortcuts. Shortcuts Included:
Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the window to each side of the monitor
Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window
Win+Down arrow: Minimize the window/Restore the window if it's maximized
Partially Included:
Win+Space: Note from the developer: AHK won't allow multiple windows to be made transparent easily. Therefore, I've changed it to make the active window transparent until it is released.

I upgraded from win vista to win 7 and after the upgrade the b,n,space bar,and direction keys started failing to work so i downgraded back win Vista, but the problem still persists and now I have upgraded...

Win 7 is a much more stable platform in my view.
It would apear that your keyboard is failing but first check the connector beneath the keyboard. It is possible but not very likely, that it has become dislodged.
To change the keyboard in quite easy. Aquire a replacement from ebay or wherever you choose first.
If you wish to change the keyboard and get lost, drop us a line when you have the replacement. It is only a case of disconnecting the power sources and battery, removing the top plastic cover and removing a couple of screws that hold the keyboard in place.
Hope this helps.

When I added Windows 7 to my Vista I no longer can get the buttons on the side to work for sleep, internet, e-mail, manify, and help to work.

Visit HP's support page for your keyboard, download the hotkey software / drivers. If you don't see Win 7 stuff don't worry Vista drivers usually work ;)

Keyboard of a vista

This article Explains the use;
To turn it off:
Press the Win + U keys together to launch the Ease of Access Center.

Then click on "Use the Computer without a mouse or keyboard" (most probably the 3rd option in the list).

Then on next page uncheck the box which says "Use On-Screen Keyboard".
