How To Disable Internal Laptop Keyboard On Windows 8

In certain cases, especially on some Laptops, the built-in keyboard is extremely uncomfortable for multiple reasons, leading to uncomfortable position , wrist pain and other bad situations.
Perhaps you have an external keyboard you'd like to use, and you've tried resting the external USB one on top, with the prongs extended to tilt it, but however, when you do (with or without the prongs extended) you may inevitably end up pressing keys on the built-in keyboard.
Or even the built-keyboard has some keys that are stuck, and keep pressing itself, thereby damaging some softwares. There might be a number of reason you have for wanting to disable the built-in keyboard and enable an external keyboard on Windows 8, but the important thing is you can do. I'm going to show you how you can do this in a number of ways.

Method - 1 Device manager

- On device manger in windows just right click the keyboard and disable it.
- To get to this, locate My computer and right click on it, then select properties.
However in rare cases, especially on some Dell and HP laptops the Device manager may be gray out and might not be available for selection. If this is true in your case then this method is pretty useless for you.
If the first method didn't work for you, and you want to completely disable it then you will need to disconnect the keyboard ribbon cable, this will be explained in the next step.

Method 2 Disconnect Keyboard cable

- This a sure way of getting what you want, disconnect the keyboard cable. On every laptop there is usually one cable that connects the keyboard to the computer, the cable is usually covered by screws.
- With a screw driver losen the keyboard screws with the objective of partially dismantling and removing the keyboard (normally the keyboard screws are marked on the underside of the laptop by a keyboard symbol).- You'll see the cable, carefully trace it to its slot and pull it out gently.
- With the cable unplugged you can tighten the keyboard back and plug in your USB external keyboard.

There is another method simple yet effective method. This method doesn't require you going to the device manager or disconnecting your Laptop's keyboard.

Method 3 cover it

If your main priority is to put the USB keyboard untop the in built keyboard without the keys pressing, then find a thing to cover it. Something like a plate with a hallow. There are usually used in computer stores to display laptops. Get something like that and use it to cover the internal keyboard.
