keyboard on thinkpad: 1. right click my computer, click properties 2.

Click "Device Manager"; if not present "Hardware", find "Device Manager" 3. Click "+" or arrow next to keyboards to open the list of all keyboard devices installed on your system. 4. Right-click laptop's keyboard driver and click "disable." -------------Using an Incompatible Driver When tinkering with the keyboard s driver, the only solution is to use a driver th at is not compatible, say a driver for Japanese keyboards used on an American QW ERTY keyboard. To do this, (note: tested on Windows 7 only) Click the Start button. Type Device Manager in the search box. Click Device Manager in the list of results. With the Device Manager opened, Click Keyboards in the list of devices to expand it. Right-click Standard PS/2 Keyboard. Click Properties. The Standard PS/2 Keyboard Properties dialog box will appear. Click Update Drive r in the Driver tab. In the next dialog box, select Browse my computer for driver software. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer. Uncheck Show compatible hardware. Select an incompatible driver and click Next. When the new driver software has been installed, click Close. Uninstalling the driver is fruitless since during restart the computer will dete ct the keyboard hardware, search for the right driver, and reinstall it. You can not also disable the keyboard since the Disable button is itself disabled. ------a simple way to disable the laptop keyboard (any brand) is to go to the device m anager, go to update driver then install an INCOMPATIBLE keyboard driver instead of the standard ps/2 driver then reboot. You will see that after reboot your de fective laptop keyboard is no longer functioning thus solving the problem. Hope this helps. ----another: I think that the reality is too bad : there is no nice solution for disabling a laptop keyboard without physically removing it. (if you uninstall the driver, Wi ndows will re-install it automatically). See this discussion forum for more precision : http://www.techsupportforum.com/h ardware-support/laptop-support/250095-how-disable-laptop-keyboard.html However, there is a way to uninstall a laptop keyborad with software :by install ing an incompatible driver !! The instructions are: Go to Device Manager and select the keyboard driver for your laptop. Right-clic-

> Properties Click on the rdiver panel and select the "Update..." button. Here you can choose an incompatible driver (you should unselect the option "Find compatible driver"). The one I have chosen (and the safer) is the "HID Keyboard Device" Restart and that's it !! Your are done I hope it will help other folks here. ----------Hardware Tinkering: nstructions 1 Shut down the laptop computer.
