If you press a key does it type or try to correct? The escapement mechanism that allows it to move from space to space may be sticking and causing your problem. That mechanism just may need a flushing and lubrication. You will see a shaft that runs through the carriage. Try to turn it top to rear until it stops. if you hear a click then it has been turned the right amount. If it doesn't turn, then it is as far as it goes. Try hitting the spacebar and see if the carriage moves. If it moves, hit any key and see if it moves. if it moves, hit another key. If it doesn't move then your escapement mechanism needs to either be flushed and lubed or adjusted.
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.
might be dirty, get a can of air, from like home depot, office max, etc. turn off laptop, take out battery, turn upside down and blow the air underneath the spacebar, this should fix your problem. If not you need a new space bar.
If the hinge parts are not broken and are still in place then place the space bar over these parts, align it so it is in the correct position then press the space bar down until the hinges click into the space bar.
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.
the prongs of the floating plastic frame need to sit inside the clips of the spacebar key, you can't just clip it back on with the prongs either up or down. It's fiddly, you need a paperclip or thin screwdriver to do it, but it's stopped the sticking problem.
only two possibilities, first is the rocker springs at each end or the bar are causingit to not make contact. or the bubble switches under the keyboard. I had a similar problem on an inspiron 6400 and I had to VERY CAREFULLY remove the keyboard,then the button to reach the bubble switch which had lost the plastic bushing that covered the shorting contact, good luck given the insane price that dell wanted for a new keyboard fixing it myself was the option.
