This is a common problem that HP knows about.

Go to this website

This will make the keyboard type again. To prevent it from happening again, you have to download a driver from hp's drivers and downloads website and download the driver "WinFlash for HP Notebook System BIOS (for Notebooks with AMD Processors) - Microsoft Windows Vista-Based".

For HP Touchsmart Tx2Z, Vista 64-bit, the driver is located here:

Thanks, it worked. I found a few grains of sand (soil). Someone was not too careful with the delicate machine:)
