    Ok
    Using a Siemens AmiloD 2ghz
    I spilt everything possible on my keyboard
    The cost of fixing is more than a new laptop
    The keyboard is hitting Many keys on the left side.(constantly)
    I am also using an external keyboard

    1.Is there any way of Disabling the integrated keyboard(or certain keys)
    -yet still able to recognize the External one. ?
    2.Any other advice?

    I have never opened a laptop
    I have cleaned under the Keys but no change.

    thanx
    ?

    I would proably open up the laptop and disconnect the keyboard and use only an external keyboard. Check in your bios to see if there is an option to disable the on board keyboard.

    Thanx will try later - just scared to disable the onboard one for fear of loosing ALL keyboard possibilities

    look on the bottom of the laptop, usually the ones holding the keyboard are marked with a K with a circle around it. This should allow you disconnect that keyboard and then you can try using the external one. See if that works for you.

    will post with results if succeeded
    it shouldnt do to much harm to disconnect or reconect it (i hope)- hopefully the onboard kboard has an easy dismountable connection
