Question from Greg T.: I dropped my heavy book bag onto my laptop’s keyboard several days ago, and when it landed I heard a cracking sound.
The keyboard still works, but at random times it’ll just start typing garbage on its own. It’s basically unusable so I’d like to disable the built-in keyboard and use a cheap USB keyboard in its place.
