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.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: How do I put my spacebar back on?

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!

Hello,

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.

Replacing the keyboard is very easy and simple on this laptop.

Disconnect the battery and the power cable.

Step 1. Begin by locating the small metal clips holding the keyboard in place on the top of the keyboard there are 4 or 5 of them.

Step 2. Use the small flat screwdriver to hold them in while you pull up the edge of the keyboard.

Step 3. Repeat step 2 for all the clips on the top until the keyboard becomes loose and you will see the keyboard connector below.

Step 4. Use the small flat screwdriver to carefully release the tabs holding the keyboard cable in place. Pull the cable out from the connector.

Step 5. Replace the keyboard, replace the connector back into the slot. Push the clips on the sides of the slot back in so that the cable is held in place.

Step 6. Put down the keyboard into its place, it should snap in, we are done.

Reconnect the battery and the power cable.

Test the keyboard by powering on the machine.

Logitec K120 spacebar skips runs wild. How to remedy problem


I'd bet that if you pulled the space bar off the keyboard that you'll find a bunch of gunk around either the spring bar, keyswitch or both.

Either that or someone set a keyboard macro for "sticky key" on your space bar when you weren't looking.

For hints on pulling keycaps, check youtube. Getting them off is easy. Getting them back on is the hard part.

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.

When I hit the spacebar it jumps 2 spaces


Look closely at the space bar. try to lift it on the right side and on the left. The bar may have popped out of place. Specifically a metal rod that holds the space bar in place. Or the space bar is not resetting fast enough, ( soda, honey, something sticky) causing the bar to reset slowly.

(Remington Streamliner) the space bar automatically tabs instead of moving one space forward. How do I fix this?


This can mean that the spacebar is not being tapped hard enough, the spacebar is sticky, the escapement is sticky, or the spacebar linkage needs adjusted. If the letters do not cause this, then the escapement being sticky is less of a concern. Sometimes the touch on the spacebar is right on the point where the escapement mechanism just barely escapes and doesn't lock in. First try tapping the spacebar more firmly to see if this helps.

Why does the space bar only have a centre touch point


The reason for this happening is that the metal bar under your spacebar is not properly attached. It's time consuming to properly fix it, but it's an easy fix at that.

All you need to do is remove your spacebar and metal bar (shaped somewhat like a tall C, if held sideways). On the bottom of the spacebar will be approximately 2-3 small clips in which the metal bar will snap into. Once snapped into place, you will want to look at the area where the spacebar goes. There should be two small clips at each end. With the metal bar clipped into the spacebar, you want to place the "ends" of the metal bar under the clips on the keyboard and very carefully place the spacebar into the hole on the keyboard and snap it into place. Now test it out and it should work fine. If not, it's likely that the metal bar came out from under the keyboard clips. The annoying part is snapping the spacebar into place without having the metal piece come out from under those clips, so you may need to perform this task a few times.

Here's an example image...

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.


You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

Spacebar on my Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is sticking in the down position.


Take out the space bar button and change the position of the "sway bar" shown in http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/MS-Natural-Ergo-Keyboard-Sticky-Spacebar-Fix/index.html

There are 3 positions you can keep the sway bar - The middle positions worked for me and probably will work for you too.

My dog knocked over my Compaq keyboard. Now the divided spacebar is opposite what it should be. Instead of spacing on the right spacebar I have to hit the left side. How do I fix this?


Pull the space bar off by using your fingers. Underneath, you'll find a metal rod. Take note on which way it is facing, and how it fits. Make sure nothing in broken under the space bar, then put the space bar back on making sure it hooks in correctly.

Get a Electrical/Electronic solvent spray from RS, give it a good spray (with Power Off!) and operate it lots of times. The spray will evaporate naturally and may remove the gunk! Ian.
