    How do I completely "destroy" my laptop's internal keyboard without physically opening the...


    I hate using the keyboard this laptop came with. The arrow keys are missing and barely function, while the rest of the keys are stuck. (They work, just not well at all.) I don't want to use the internal keyboard, rather the USB Logitech one I have. However, when I place it on top of the laptop keyboard itself, it mashes random buttons hard enough for me to get random pound signs, sixes, and colons out the wazoo.


    I've tried screwing around in Device Manager by uninstalling the driver or changing the driver to an incompatible one, and I've even gone as far as to get the Group Policy Editor working to try and stop Windows from automatically fixing it at boot. But of course, it's persistent and ignores anything that tries to stop it from putting the driver back as it always was.


    Please help me find a solution to this. Thanks.

    :)

  2. Disabling laptop keyboard

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    As per the description. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I suggest you follow the steps below and check if that helps:

    • Press Windows + X and select
      Device Manager
      from the list.
    • Find Keyboards in the list of devices and click the arrow to expand it.
    • Right-click on the internal keyboard and click Disable. If there is no Disable option listed, click
      Uninstall.
    • Click File>Exit. Your laptop’s internal keyboard should now be disabled.
    Note: If you had to choose Uninstall instead of Disable in step 4, the keyboard will be automatically detected and re-installed if you ever have the Device Manager scan for new hardware for some reason. If that happens you’ll need to repeat this procedure
    in order to uninstall it again.

    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.

  3. Physical keyboard driver of HTC 7 Pro

    HI I'm sorry in advance if neither of these 2 methods work for you, but if you've tried everything else it can't hurt to try - right?!

    Open the App Drawer, look for Settings, then follow:

    • Language & Input > Keyboard & Input Methods > Android Keyboard (AOSP) Settings > Input Languages
    • In this list check-mark for English (and whatever other languages you require)
    The only other way i know is to use a third-party keyboard application. I can recommend using MultiLing from Google Play for a number of reasons..........

    • You can customize everything from the keyboard language and layout and the look of the keyboard to sound effects and emoticons,
    • It has a very comprehensive list of languages with the auto-completion dictionaries,
    • It is absolutely FREE !!!
    Once you install the keyboard, follow these steps to add languages (Actually the app will present you with a convenient step-by step set-up wizard when you first run it):

    • Settings (not your Android settings, the MultiLing keyboard settings - there is a key for that on the keyboard - this will open a pop-up) > Languages > tick the languages you want
    • To install the auto-completion dictionaries, go to "Install Dictionaries" on the same screen. This will open developer's website with links to download dictionaries from Google Play.
    To change the keyboard layouts:

    • Settings > Keyboard Settings > Themes, Sizes and Layouts ? ABC Layouts > select the layout you want.
    • Press Back several times to go back to the Input screen and you are good to go!!
    SWITCHING LAYOUTS

    If you want to use QWERTY with English or AZERTY with French or QWERTZ with German etc., there are two ways then to achieve this:

    • Changing the MultiLing Keyboard settings where you have English and German set up - following the steps above (total of around 7 taps or 5 - 10 seconds)
    • Using the stock Android keyboard with English language and QWERTZ layout, and the MultiLing with English Language and the keyboard of your choice - in your case QWERTY. In this case keyboard is done through the notifications screen (as far as i can remember).
    • You should already have installed the appropriate auto-completion Dictionary but if not go back and complete the settings to do so now!
    I really hope that some of this information is useful to you!!

    Kind regards
