Question about Compaq Keyboard

Open Question

Keyboard randomly double spaceing when pressing space bar.

Normally, when i hold the spacebar, there will be an space, half an second delay, than it starts adding spaces...

Well,apparently the half an second delay is gone, and randomly while typingan message (like 10 times so far while typing this out) it adds anextra space... It's really annoying. I installed the keyboard wirelessmedia keyboard drivers from the disk that came with the package, butthat didn't fix it...

Also I should probably mention, i had this keyboard for about 1 to 1 and an half years so far.

Also, apparently this site doesn't have my product, and it wouldn't post my question without entering an one that they know, so my keyboard aint an compaq, it's an "Labtec® Media Wireless Desktop" (http://www.labtec.com/index.cfm/gear/details/AMR/EN,crid=28,contentid=711)

SOURCE: I HAVE A COMPAQ KEYBOARD. I DID SOMETHING STUPID.

Try getting the cans of compressed air you would get at an office supply store, power down the laptop and trydrying the board with short bursts of air, there may be some dampness under the keys interfereing with the imput signals from the key pads.

Pull the space bar off by using your fingers. Underneath, you'll find a metal rod. Take note on which way it is facing, and how it fits. Make sure nothing in broken under the space bar, then put the space bar back on making sure it hooks in correctly.

Logitec K120 spacebar skips runs wild. How to remedy problem


I'd bet that if you pulled the space bar off the keyboard that you'll find a bunch of gunk around either the spring bar, keyswitch or both.

Either that or someone set a keyboard macro for "sticky key" on your space bar when you weren't looking.

For hints on pulling keycaps, check youtube. Getting them off is easy. Getting them back on is the hard part.

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.


You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

Spacebar on my Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is sticking in the down position.


Take out the space bar button and change the position of the "sway bar" shown in http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/MS-Natural-Ergo-Keyboard-Sticky-Spacebar-Fix/index.html

There are 3 positions you can keep the sway bar - The middle positions worked for me and probably will work for you too.

My dog knocked over my Compaq keyboard. Now the divided spacebar is opposite what it should be. Instead of spacing on the right spacebar I have to hit the left side. How do I fix this?

I took my spacebar off to clean it and i dont know how to put it back on?


There is a rubber part that is designed to spring up when you release the space bar - this is the contacts that is the electrical push button. At each end the metal bar is hooked to the plastic (the long space bar key). There may be a couple springs found as well - they should seat on the base. Connect all pieces and place the space bar key over the area where it aligns to the keyboard and snap it place with a slight force.

The space bar won't work unless pounded on (other keys work just fine). how can I fix this?


You have a defective keyboard spacebar. Just get a
replacement. I have a problem similar to what you got.
Since it was delaying my work, I have it replaced. Anyway, keyboard doesn't cost much. There are a lot
of choices that you can buy at a bargain.

The rubber plug below the spacebar button is faulty.The button needs to be removed gently and the rubber plug below it which touches the board below should be cleaned.If this does not solve the issue the rubber plug below the button needs to be replaced.Its a common problem.

thanks and please do not forget to rate the solution.keep updated.

My keyboard is inserting spaces where they don't belong.  it is usually around R's, N's and spaces (I  press the   spacebar once it it inserts 2 or three spaces, the  faster I type the   worse it gets.)...


You should open the key board.and clean space key and change rubber cap.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
