There are a couple options: 1. Your keyboard is broken, you need to replace it. 2. Try unplugging / replugging it un and or restarting your computer, that may fix the issue. 3. Your keyboard layout might have changed. If you are using a Windows computer, you can press CTRL + SHIFT to switch between layouts. Or you can go to Control Panel -> Clock, Language, and Region -> Change Keyboards or other input methods. From here, you can change your keyboard layout back to use.
Since you have reinstalled the OS and it didn't fix the problem. It most likely your computer having one or more hardware failure. You need to check each of your computer component to find where is the problem.
Hi, I'm afraid that your recovery CD's won't help you get the space bar working. There could well be dust, biscuit crumbs, hairs etc that's preventing the spacebar from working, turn the laptop off but don't close the lid, stand the laptop on it's side and get yourself a clean, dry paintbrush. Start to brush the keys and gently tap the keyboard with the other end of the brush to knock out any foreign objects that could be trapped under the spacebar. Once your happy it's clean turn the laptop on and see if the spacebar works. If you still have the same symptoms then the keyboard will have to be replaced. You can use the on-screen keyboard to substitute for the spacebar for the time being.
try to press the key using screw driver or any pin that you can press into the keyboard..but remove first the top key..try pressing with some screw if its typing,if not its mean the logic board is damage and you need toreplace a new one...if working with the screw pressing..repalace with a key button only with the same lock.
only two possibilities, first is the rocker springs at each end or the bar are causingit to not make contact. or the bubble switches under the keyboard. I had a similar problem on an inspiron 6400 and I had to VERY CAREFULLY remove the keyboard,then the button to reach the bubble switch which had lost the plastic bushing that covered the shorting contact, good luck given the insane price that dell wanted for a new keyboard fixing it myself was the option.
