inspiron 1501 - turn off embedded numeric keypad with external key pad active
When an external numeric keypad is added to an inspiron 1501, is there any way to turn off the embedded numeric keypad in the keyboard on the laptop so that letters are typed while the external keypad is active and able to be used for numbers.
Basically I want to disable the embedded numeric keypad in the laptop while the numlk is on.
There is no option in the bios like some other models to change it.
If you can't do this then it should be noted that this is a bad choice of notebook for people who work with numbers and like their external numeric keypad.
