The keyboard may need cleaning or is broken.
To clean it, you could get a can of canned air, tip the laptop on it's side or upside down (carefully!) and blow out under the keys using small shots of air.

If that doesn't do it, you can try hooking up a regular PC keyboard using a regular PS/2 Keyboard or a USB keyboard and see if that will work for you.

You may be able to find a replacement keyboard online, but they can be tricky to replace.

My spacebar is not working how can i fix this


If on a Desktop, it's best to buy a new keyboard. On a laptop, where the kb is fastened to the case, try blowing out from under the spacebar with compressed air. That kb can be replaced too, but it's a hassle.

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...

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.

Have you tried applying pressure gently until it snaps back in place? That could be the issue, is that the spacebar unsnapped itself when you were cleaning it. If you were using compressed air (canned air) then you may have blown something underneath it and it jammed itself in there. Trying turning the keyboard upside down and gently tapping it on a hard surface to see if anything else comes out.
