Keyboard Maping Issues.

I am wondering if anyone has run into this sort of thing before. The function keys on my laptop are all buggered up.
Here is the output from xev when I press <F2>:

tknomanzr@UEFI-test:~$ xev | grep -A2 --line-buffered '^KeyRelease' | sed -n '/keycode /s/^.*keycode \([0-9]*\).* (.*, \(.*\)).*$/\1 \2/p'
36 Return
33 p
33 p
33 p
33 p
33 p
33 p
33 p
33 p
33 p
33 p
33 p

This is all wrong, because, as you can see, <F2> is mapped over <p>, creatinf a race condition. The above will keep running until I break it. I know I can remap the XF86 mappings but that wont do me any good until I can resolve the above issue. Also, <F5> is not mapped at all, IE no output from Xev. There are other oddities as well so question is:

Is this a driver issue?
A Bios Issue?

This same issue exists in both 3.16.04 kernel and 3.19.1 kernel.

Hardware: HP Pavilion g7 notebook w/ Amd-A6 dual core.

is the relevant output for my keyboard.


Be excellent to each other!

Check your firmware (BIOS) options.
