Default disable asus laptop keyboard issues

hay all, a while ago i spilt some beer on my laptop.

so now i use a usb plug in mouse and usb plug in keyboard.

problem is every now and then the bitter old keyboard goes insane and spams a random key or a combination of a few.

99.9% the time 90% of the keys don't work. once in a blue moon the FN key and the F9 key both work! which is great i just disable the laptop and i can live without fear of the old keyboard waking up and screeching.

now my usb keyboard doesn't have the function key.

and when i use the windows 10 Onscreen keyboard its function key merely flits between the F9 key and 9 key. it doesn't actually disable the laptops keyboard.

i have been scouring the net for a solution for a few weeks now and the only one seems to be open the laptop and pull the cable out from behind keyboard.

last time i was inside my laptop i broke a heap of bits of plastic and shit and there's no way im going back in there.

is there a solution out there? surely ocau is the mecca for trouble shooting beer+keyboard issues.

thank you for the help

Pay someone else to open it up and unclip the flat flex.

surely there is a soft way of doing this. maybe some way i can macro a key to it. theres screen brightness functions audio functions sleep etc etc must be a way to access all of them
