The spacebar on my laptop doesn't always leave spaces between words, what is wrong with it?


Inside the key, there is a metal bar the makes the spacebar key depress from anywhere you press it. Either this bar as unclipped from its hinges or they have broken.

Spacebar somewhat jammed


There may be something stuck under the bar like a crumb of biscuit or a bit of grit that stops the bar from free movement.

My Dell Latitude D630 spacebar came off. Nothing looks broken, but I can't get it back on.


If the hinge parts are not broken and are still in place then place the space bar over these parts, align it so it is in the correct position then press the space bar down until the hinges click into the space bar.

My laptop seems to have the space bar stuck down.i have managed to remove the spacebar and nothing was wrong with it. E ven while the spacebar was removed the laptop thought it was being pressed down.its...


I have heard and did experience laptop spacer bar not registering when you press it.

I have a HP zv6000 with this problem, here is how I solved it, as it is a manufacturers design fault:

If you have the maintenance manual (get it of the web free), remove the key board. Place a small block of about 3/16" of folded paper between the underside of the spacer bar pad and the board itself. This it to help raise the spacer bar for the next step.

On the underside center of the spacer bar is a small black silicone rubber button, that may now have enough space between it and the underside of the spacer bar (after applying the sandwich of folded paper). The object of this is to enable you to place a 1/4" square of masking tape between the top of the silicone button and the underside of the spacer bar.

If this can be done, the tape will stay in place very well and in essence raise the spacer bar by the tape thickness, thus aiding in overcoming an unresponsive operation of the spacer bar. You may wish to place two thicknesses of tape in place for positive assurance. I only used one and it seems to work well, but I would recommend two thicknesses of tape, as the bar may still occasionally not register. But trust me it is much better now.

I'm sorry I did not take any pictures and I am not a member here, but I hope someone will find this very useful and post it for all to see.

Good luck to all.

Spacebar replacement


Crazy Glue. Individual keys are not available for resale at reasonable price. You could replace entire keyboard cheaper. That is an option for you. Contact local pc shop.

Importance of hard drive partial metal enclosure.


Hi,

To my knowledge, the purposes are:
  • spacer, since not all harddrives have exactly identical dimensions and replacement may differ. The manufacturers of the laptop to ensure that all would fit makes the space big enough for the biggest and insert spacer to compensate with the slightly smaller models;
  • heat shield, as the name implies puts a stop gap between the physical closeness of two heat sources so as not to contribute to the temp of the other, hard disk and motherboard/casing.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
