how do i do that and also my model is an hp touchsmart 15 - intel core i3 also it does not turn into a tablet.
 
The keyboard is located in "Control Panel" ... "Device Manager" ... "Keyboards" ... then right-click on the keyboard you are using that is listed. In the right-click menu, click on "Properties" ... then in the new window click the "Drivers" tab and then click "Uninstall" and click "OK".

Then proceed to reboot the computer.

which one the ps/2 one or hid keybord.

 
If you didn't do the uninstall, it should stay listed. If it is missing, after not doing anything, then there is something else going on with the system. Perhaps the keyboard is having a physical problem rather than a software/driver one.

by the way i keep my laptop plugged in ALWAYS. no exceptions. except to use the laptop for hdmi i have to plug it out. also this is a windows 8 hp touchsmart 15 laptop upgraded from a windows 8 to windows 10. i dont think the upgrade has to do anything with this as i upgraded a few months ago and the keyboard worked fine then.
