Can I lock the keyboard of my laptop?

I own a Compaq Presario C751NR Notebook PC that runs on Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. My step-daughter and my grandbabies are staying with me for a while and the 16 month old keeps trying to "help" or "play" with the lap-top. I know some keyboards can be locked and I was wondering if this one can? I know how to lock the touch pad, but not the keys too. If there is a way I am hoping someone out there would please help. Thanks.
