Shut down, hook up a USB Keyboard, start up and see if an alternate keyboard does the same thing.

I would try to borrow one from a friend (go to the friend and try).

It looks like a keyboard error, but you need to find a way to test.

Shut down, start up and press F8 immediately and several times to get into Safe Mode. Can you log in using Safe Mode?

Try getting into BIOS. Shut down, start up and look quickly at the screen. Press F1 if you can or Enter to go to BIOS. If that works does the keyboard work in BIOS.

It looks like you have a defective keyboard. Not repairable and must be serviced. It is possible re-seating the keyboard may help. This requires removing the keyboard anyway.

Try F1 and Shift-F1 and then Fn-F1 to see if any of these get into BIOS. Your HP Documentation should give you the BIOS sequence. Different for every manufacturer.

You have a defective keyboard. BIOS is independent of the OS.  So you need to replace the keyboard.
