    Good evening.

    Due to a hardware issue, my keyboard thinks the Page Up key is getting pressed continuously. I've removed the physical key, no cigar. Unfortunately, this is a laptop, and I've tried everything I can think of.

    How would I go about permanently/persistently disabling this key?

    I've tried:
    Code (Text):
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 112='
    as well as:
    Code (Text):
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 112=NoSymbol'
    to no avail. Sometimes works - for 3-25 seconds.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks very much for all of y'all's help!
