    i have an hp laptop, 3 yrs old, running windows xp home ed. one letter is
    "stuck". i currently have an external keyboard hooked up, and it works, but
    it still recognizes both keyboards.

    is it possible for it to recognize ONLY the external, and turn the built in
    keyboard "off"???

    thanks in advance.

    Why don't you call HP, and order a new keyboard for the laptop, so that it
    is normal again?

    i called hp, and to talk to them is a charged "help call"--off warranty.

    it looks difficult (maybe expensive?) to order / install a new built in
    keyboard.

    Surely it would be better to get it fixed than fart about with a non
    upgradeable laptop with a external keyboard.

    the laptop is only used in the house on the desk though, and i surely don't
    want to put money into it, i'd like to get it to work ok for 6 months with
    the external keyboard solely, then buy a nice one later on this yr.

    now, to the root question again, any suggestions about how to disable the
    built in keyboard? :)
