The space bar key is connected tothe keyboard a little bit differently then any other key.
There is a metal retainer connectedto the space bar key (on some keyboard models). Separate the retainer from thespace bar key with a flathead screwdriver.
Install the retainer back inplace as it shown on the picture. You have to engage the retainer with thesmall hooks on the keyboard.
Put the space bar key back inplace and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place.
That’s it. The space bar key isinstalled back in place and should work as before. If you still cannot fix yourkeyboard, then you’ll have to find a new oneand replace it.
Pleas rate my solution on fixya if you are done.

There might be a metal wire if it is missing, which snaps to the keyboard, you may need a new keyboard.
If you are unsure, you should probably thake it to your local computer repair shop.

If you don't want to get that involved, the only easiest solution is to replace the entire keyboard. Check to ensure that this part that should work with your laptop here:

Firstly ensure you have all the parts - there may be one or two sets of small plastic hinged brackets. These go on first to the laptop - then the key should snap in.
Be careful to check the brackets are not broken or worn first!

Does the spacebar feel sluggish? - does it move like the other buttons do? It does sound a little bit like the keyboard would have a problem at that point of the board. You might need to replace the whole keyboard to get it working properly.
I would recommend that you get someone to look at the keyboard in person before you go ahead and replace the whole keyboard. It is very cheap for this laptop. But if its not a actual problem with the keyboard then the problem would remain unsolved.
