There may be something under the spacebar key preventing its contact with the base. If you gently pull up the key it will come off and you can check.

It's a bit tricky to put it back on, gently push it back on rocking it from top to bottom.

Failing this, you can buy a new keyboard quite cheaply on the web.

That seems strange- try restarting your computer, or if that doesn't work, check your browser settings and make sure you don't have a weird key-bind set to the space bar. If all else fails, it might be easier to just reinstall your browser. I recommend Firefox, but Chrome is a strong browser as well.

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.

How to use the space bar when typing on screen keyboard?

If you are typing with the mouse, just click the space once to give one space after a word or after a letter. There's no other method or no other way to give space without using the space bar of the onscreen keyboard.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have to push real hard to get the space bar to work. I have a Dell inspiron1520. It has done this before and it got better...It happens after I shut the laptop.

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.
