How do you turn the built in keyboard off Y50?

2018-11-30, 12:38 PM

Hey i have a Lenovo Y50 and after a few years of use the keyboard has started to die so i have decided i want to use a normal keyboard instead of the built in keyboard, how do i turn the built in keyboard off? i can do it with my other laptops but i can not find how to do it on my Y50, i ask this because i like to put my keyboard over the laptop keyboard and i can not do this with the Y50 because the keeyboard feet keep pressing keys.

Thanks.

Hi Seraph11,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

The built in keyboard is mechanically connected but you can try the steps here and here within Windows. 

 

If you want to physical do it, then review the hardware manual from the support site. detaching the keyboard cable from the port should do the job.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes best for you.

 

Regards

uninstalling the driver also unistalls my USB ports (well they dont work when the keyboard is unistalled).... im not confident enough to unplug it myself.

Hi Seraph11,

 

You can try to install an incompatible driver in device manager. Choose update driver in device manager > use existing drivers > display incompatible drivers or uncheck "Only use compatible drivers"> choose one incompatible driver and restart. 

 

Others may look for software tools to disable keyboard but I would suggest to have it a technician disable the cable physically or have it replace. DIY option maybe to stick a rubber roll beneath it high enough not to touch the the keys as temporary solution if device manager changes fails on you.

 

Regards
