Dan, have you looked for firmware for your laptop?  I suggest using 
synaptic and do a search for firmware and drivers and hp and also 
laptop, if your using amd search amd firmware or search amd driver or 
search amd laptop or search hp laptop or hp driver or hp firmware, etc, 
just use synaptic and find what you need.

I'm using 5 different laptops here and all the buttons work on all of 
them, I don't use pclinuxos, because I always find hardware it does not 
support, but I do use Ubuntu, Debian and Devuan and none have hardware 
problems amd or intel no problems. Good Luck.
