what's the error that you get ? – Shekhar Jan 23 '12 at 13:36

First off, not sure why you would disable a laptop keyboard (yes.. I read your initial question).

But its better to seek a hardware replacement than trying to isolate the issue with a software 'block'. I'm not sure why you are complaining now, you have succeeded in blocking your keyboard, and your touchpad which most likely combines with you keyboard driver set, is not working as a result.

I would find a keyboard replacement (ebay?), usually laptop keyboards pop in and out for replacement.

Here is an amazon link for instance to a new keyboard:

I would suggest that, as playing around and blocking policy for drivers and disabling built in keyboards will just bring you back to this type of trouble.

Thanks Jakub, But i have bought an external Keyboard. As i used to handle my keyboard rough for playing games i prefer External keyboard. Can i be able to install my Touch pad driver alone? – sam Jan 25 '12 at 4:22
can you please tell me how can i install my touchpad driver alone.. Is it possible? – sam Feb 1 '12 at 10:08
@sam, no, I'm not sure, typically people don't disable their laptop keyboards because they don't want to fix the hardware problem. – Jakub Feb 1 '12 at 14:14
