I have an hp compaq presario c700 laptop with windows 7 installed on it

My laptop's keyboard is not working properly some keys never work and some keys will keep pressing I've formatted the os but it didn't solve my problem.

I got an external usb keyboard and it worked well As some keys in the built-in keyboard activate themselves, i still couldn't work effectively.

After searching google i tried the following steps to disable the keyboard built-in

  1. Disabled keyboard drivers:
    This didn't work because when the system reboots, the driver gets installed again automatically.

  2. Installed irrelevant driver for keyboard:
    This failed - I couldn't install the driver. After rebooting it installed the correct driver automatically.

How do i temporarily uninstall a built-in keyboard? I don't want to remove it manually by removing the hardware cable

Look at this article , it will help you to disable your laptop keyboard by uninstalling your keyboard driver.

  • Go to Start–>Search type in gpedit.msc
  • Click the file to open the Local Group Policy Editor and show Windows who is in control!! You want to go here: Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->System->Device Installation. Click on the subfolder Device Installation Restrictions on the left and on the right side you will see the possible restrictions.
  • Right Click on Prevent Installation of Devices not described by other policy settings and edit this option, set it on ENABLED.
  • Reboot Windows and enjoy its inability to pollute your system with its standard driver, open gpedit.msc again and revert the change so you will be able to install your driver.
