I spilled coke (diet pepsi actually) onto keyboard. It has friedn the keyboard. Good news is that if I plug in external the external works fine. Problem is the onbaord keyboard hasa permenanetly depressed key short which makes it almost impossible to navigate/user consistently.
I have attempted uninstalling the driver for the onboard keybaord. It then tells me to restart to computer to have the deletion take affect...of course it then reinstalls the driver.
I want to essentially permanently disable by onboard keyboard by uninstalling that driver. Or...possibly another way of disabling onboard keyboard?
Forgive me if I am a little slow here. Normally don't get involved at this deep a level with drivers/bios etc....that's what happens when you drink a freakin soda by a keyboard! doih!
MUCHAS GRACIAS AMIGOS! In advance.

Keyboards don't have much in the way of active electronics anymore. They are mainly a matrix of switches.
The keyboard can be removed and cleaned with alcohol, or un-plugged from the mainboard.
They are usually in layers, a pressed key connects one layer to another at a specific position to cause the computer to interpret what key has been pressed. A spilled soda will stick contacts together but is not likely to fry anything in the keyboard.
Give make, model and I'll see I can find dis-assembly instructions for your machine.
If you really want to disable the keyboard, do this:
Start>Run>Services.msc>Shell Hardware Detection Service>Disable
You will also lose autorun for the CD/DVD drives.
Now with this service disabled, uninstall the keyboard again and it will stay gone.
The T series are very similar between the numbered models.
I found instructions for the T 4200, and a link is provided below.
Watch out for the keyboard ribbon cable where it connects to the mainboard. There may be a sliding lock to keep it in place so it won't fall out of it's socket.
