Fix spacebar


On a Desktop, just purchase a new kb for $16 or so. On a laptop, it's an involved process to replace the kb.

To get a space without a spacebar, try these two suggestions:

- Press Alt/32 (that's Alt with 3 2) then release the Alt key.
- Run OSK and click the spacebar.

The actual model number MIGHT get you a repair procedure in a Google or Youtube search for "repair spacebar".

Problemwith spacebar


If you take all those tiny screws out of the bottom of the keyboard you'll see a circuitboard with three copper "design" spots(usually 3) under the spacebar..........the ones NOT in the center of the spacebar are dirty. You could use some alcohol or acetone to clean the outside "designs".....(warning) Acetone will damage plastic!!!!!!!!
there are a lot of rubber caps that WILL fall out of place when you turn it over) (the actual keys could fall out too) (Be careful when you take off the bottom of the keyboard!!!!) Clean the ones that align with the SPACEBAR!!!! Dont touch or clean anything else that wasn't working....... Gently place the bottom back on and screw down the bottom cover with a cross pattern.....(left>right...top>bottom).....If this dosn't work....the best part is that a new keyboard........is fairly cheap....mtg

Media.center.keyboard.spacebar.does.not.work.after.cleaning


i have already posted the solution to my problem.....but i will tell you in more specifics what transpired.........after removing my spacebar.....i used electric pre-shave (an alcohol based solutions with a slight amount of lubrication).......with a few drops of that and a q-tip i cleaned the black tarry mass that had accumulated underneath the space bar most likely from spilled pop,coffee,pancake syrup,cat hairs,and only god knows what else...........after replacing it it worked fine mechanically and physically but did not work on the screen......after a day or two it started working .....i guess the alcohol needed to dry out .....i did put two drops down the tube that had a pad at the bottom (contacts underneath it ).........everything working better than new now .......thanks for being here to help.........

Keyboard problems


Hi debodunmcg,

Either the laptop has built up dirt underneath the keyboard so the the keys do not contact the electronic parts or the keyboard needs replacing.

hi it sounds like the laptop key board has a fault try going back in to your region settings and putting in your correct region place eg uk or usa or even restoring defalt setting this will be in your control pannel ok if this dose not fix your problem then you may need to take it to a pc shop for a new key board fitted .
hope this helps thanks and all the best
