Default Disable Keyboard (physical)

Well I had an incident with my phone last weekend and now my physical keyboard doesn't work properly. None of the keys really work and the G key is stuck at times and even when phone is is closed will type GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. Is there any way to disable the physical keyboard, basically start using this it like a Pure.


Would like to do this with software rather than opening up phone

<_<, well i guess im back already lol.

1. open a registry editing program

2. go to HKLM < HARDWARE < DEVICEMAP < KEYBD.

3. There should be a key named "DriverName".

4. Change its value from "KpdNopAll.dll" to 0, or anything you want, just as long as its not pointing to another driver i guess. then you may have to hard reset the phone because mine froze when I did it.

5. let me know how it worked!

\\ The phone still registers some keys like the arrow keys and the FN key, but none of the letters work
