I spilled juice on my laptop a couple of days ago but I cleaned it up immediately although some keys don't work on the laptop. I took out all they keys on my laptop and cleaned them so they aren't sticky anymore but my 'G' key doesn't work when I press on it or sometimes it would randomly keep spamming the button. So when I try to delete it with the backspace key, it's pretty much impossible. Therefore my question is, is there anyway to disable my keyboard since I'm using an external keyboard at the moment.

Laptop:
HP G60-237US
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium

I've never seen an option on a laptop to disable the keyboard. Unfortunately, It always involves opening the laptop and physically disconnecting the keyboard. But then again, you might be able to find the keyboard service and disable it completely, but who knows what else you would lose.

Oh.. true.. but I've searched on Google a few times and some people mentioned something about the BIOS? Which I have no clue what it is.

The BIOS stands for Basic Input/Output System. It's basic responsibility is to set the hardware in a state that's useable by the OS. To most users, it's that black screen of "jibber jabber" that you see when you first turn on your computer. :)

Anyway, I've never seen that particular option in the BIOS, but then again it's not something I've ever looked for to tell you the truth. I don't have my laptop at work, but if I get a chance, I'll check my Dell when I get home.

Nevermind, incorrect instructions. Sorry.
