    For starters, you shouldn't be going from some to none. Take it out and reload it. If further help is needed, go live. List accordingly.

Problem with spacebar key


I don't quite understand why this would happen after pluggin in a USB mouse - but I've seen it numerous times after a liquid has been spilled on a keyboard.

Sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Best way to test this is to plug in an external usb keyboard and see if you can type normally on it.

If the laptop keyboard exhibits this behavior, and the external keyboard doesn't - you should replace the laptop keyboard.

Spacebar on keyboard makes my computer go to sleep mode


Sounds like your keyboard is sending the wrong signal (the one telling your PC to enter sleep mode) to your motherboard when you press space key, which (if true) would indicate it's faulty. It could also be you've contracted a virus and is playing a particularly nasty practical joke on you (let's hope that's all it does). Try connecting another keyboard to your PC and see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you'll need to clean your computer of any viruses. Try also disconnecting your mouse and see if that changes anything. If your keyboard comes with a shortcut utility software for it, run it and check there's no shortcut set on your keyboard's space bar. You've additionally specified you're not using wireless keyboard, but could you also please write what OS you're on?

Hi, I have an acer netbook and my spacebar isnt working. Is there a diffrent button on my keyboard I can use until the spacebar is fixed?


Yes there is a solution to that. You have an on-screen keyboard pre-installed on your computer that came with the operating system. What you need to do is If you are running Vista or Windows 7
Go to START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > EASE OF ACCESS click ON-SCREEN KEYBOARD
If you are running XP Go to START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > ACCESSIBILITY click ON SCREEN KEYBOARD A keyboard will pop up on your screen that you can use with your mouse button.

Wireless mouse won't work, have replace battery, rebooted laptop removed and replaced mouse connection etc. Was working fine until yesterday


Is it not working at all or is it moving erratically across the screen? If it doesn't seem to be working at all, turn off your mouse then unplug the receiver's USB cable from the laptop for about 5-10 seconds then plug it in to another USB port. It may detect a new device, just let it do the automatic installation if it asks. You should here a 'tada' or ding sound when it is plugged in. When installation is completed or about 10 seconds after you hear the sound, turn your mouse back on.

If it still doesn't work, try shutting down your laptop completely instead of just rebooting it.

If it still doesn't work after that, make sure you have a spare USB mouse available then uninstall the software for your wireless mouse or mouse/keyboard combo then reinstall it.

Wireless mouse not working


You can use them both at the same time.Make sure the batteries are good.There should be a sync button on the bottom of the mouse.you need to check the wireless receiver to see if there is a button on there as well.If there is you need to push the button on there first,then the mouse.
The easiest way to fix a sticking key is to remove it from the keyboard and clean it out.Then replace the key.

I just recently purchased the wireless keyboard and mouse. Thought I was following the instructions for installing them. The computer says they are installed properly, yet the keyboard won't work. Can't...


usually these have a tiny "Connect" Button on the bottom of the keyboard, mouse, and a button on the receiver. Have you followed the sync procedure with this ?

Is there another wireless device nearby that may be interfering ?

Is it one receiver for both devices ?

Does the mouse work ?

Have you tried a 2nd set of batteries on your keyboard ??

Hope this helps.

Spacebar not responding on Toshiba laptop Satellite


Since the spacebar is the most used key on the keyboard, it is likely a hardware failure of the spacebar itself. Replacement keyboards can be found on EBay and normally run about $20
