    Hey guys,

    I have a dell inspiron 600m laptop that I got 4yrs ago. However, being in college, there has been beer and water spilled on it a few times. It was being weird at first, bringing up random boxes like narrator, but I let it dry out and now use an attached keyboard instead of the laptop one (I never take it anywhere anyways), and it seems to have recovered.

    However, lately the computer has been messing up, stalling and making that internal 'beep' sound, going back on webpages when I never hit anything, and generally makiing internal mistakes. I am sure that most of it is because of damage to the laptop keyboard itself. Just now it has been backspacing this message - by itself!!!

    Is there a way to uninstall the laptop keyboard? Most keys work, but those that are damaged are ruining my browsing and other things. I just want to see if when I uninstall it, the weird things stop happening. There have been no other problems with my computer and no viruses have gotten into it. I am cautious with software..not with hardware though apparently

    Also, if i uninstall the laptop keyboard, can I ever get it back?

    Thank you!!!

    you can also plug a usb desktop KB and / or mouse into the usb ports of your notebook to see if it is the mainboard or the notebook KB.
