I have a laptop (Toshiba Tecra w/ XP Pro), and I am going to use a separate keyboard rather than my laptop's built-in keyboard. Before installing the driver for the separate keyboard, is there anything I need to do to de-activate my laptop's built-in keyboard? Or will XP just allow me to use the new one upon installation?

Sorry for such a newbie question. I could not find any answers on line. Wondering if someone here might know.

Thanks so much in advance! :thumbsup:

Xp will recognize the new keyboard, and allow you to use the new keyboard or the built in one. If you press a key on the built in one or the new one they will both work.
