When I am typing out words on the laptop and try to hit the space bar it will not work...after I tap it a few times it might kick in, but it just goes flying across the screen. Then I have to backspace back to were I was. I have to use the arrow keys to space my words....is there any help for this? It is a brandnew computer to me, bought it refurbished from sweepstakes clearing house. Thanks!!

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.

I have a collection of Dell laptops dating back to the '90s, and
I've experienced this problem with a couple of them. What I found is
the problem is related to the space bar becoming partially detached
from the keyboard mechanism. this is usually because the plastic clips
on the spacebar key is broken, or slipped off the mating plastic piece
on the mechanism. Is one part of your space bar loose or floppy? If so,
you can try to gently push down on the loose end to try an get the
clips to snap into the mechanism. If that doesn't work ...
I haven't taken my space bar off, but you should be able to gently
lift it up with your fingertips, or by using a small plastic scribe,
and separate the bar from the mechanism. Look at the clips on the
bottom of the key to see if any are broken or missing. If so, you can
contact Dell and see about getting a new keyboard, since it should be
under warranty. I just did that with a Studio 1537 that arrived last
week with a broken Control key. Dell Fed-Exed a ney keyboard
immediately and it took mayby 10 minutes to install once I unpacked it.
try other programs to see if it works fine there. it could be an issue with the web browser. if you are using Internet Explorer, try using Mozilla FireFox. It is more secure and really easy to use. goto getfirefox.com to get it.
The space bar on any PC is a single button you may need to make sure your keyboard is clear of any debris If that doesn't fix issue you will probably need to replace keyboard which is very easy to do. email@example.com
