Worst case scenario you will have to replace the keyboard.

You can try removeing the plastic button and see whats going on under there. not much.. else..

Unable to use red coloured portions of the keyboard. eg: (?) . only whie coloured ones work. it is a dell inspiron n5030 laptop

Not sure what you mean about Red colored keys. There are White and Blue colored keys on many Dell laptops. In order to use the Blue keys you have to hold down the <FN> key next to the space bar to use the Blue keys.

This is a sign that your keyboard is wearing out already and needs to be replaced (this can be caused by a poor keyboard design/quality or simply worn out from everyday use). If you know your way around the computer, you can get spare parts here and disassembly guide here.

Good luck.

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.

Yup! you can do that.. carefully... i repeat, carefully pry-upward the space bar using a hard plastic card (I.D cards are best). Clean the hinge with a brush. Press down till you hear a click to return the key back to its position.

Left side of space bar on Dell XPS M1330 difficult to use

I had the exact same problem and contacted Dell support. They sent a tech to swap out just the keyboard. I have a feeling these keyboards are not of the highest quality as I do have some issues with the Ctrl key now. But it's much less annoying than the broken spacebar.
