Hi, I accidentally spilled something on my keyboard and now it goes haywire anytime I press most keys.
The L key is super sensitive, D, H, J and other keys repeatedly trigger.
I want to disable the laptop's keyboard and use my external one, but is there a way to do that and is it safe?
My battery is dead, so it shuts down if the charger is off. If disabling the keyboard also disables the power button, that'd suck.
I heard for some laptops you shouldn't because the power button is part of the keyboard.
If it is safe and the power button will still work, does anyone know how I can disable it? In Device Manager, there's 4 "devices" under "Keyboard".
Alternatively, maybe there are programs that will disable the keys but not the external? if any one has suggestions, let me know. Thanks.
Edit: I realized my situation isn't optimal and should probably just buy a replacement keyboard. Unfortunately, it's pretty pricey.
So, my last question is, can I remove the ribbons of the keyboard? If so, which ones?
