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...

SPACE BAR NOT AS TOUCH SENSITIVES BEFORE


That is usually caused from something getting stuck under it. Get a can of compressed air and use it with the tube that attaches to the can to blow out the debris under the space bar.

(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.

My spacebar key is no longer working properly. I have an acer aspire laptop 5735Z . I deliberately pulled the key off to clean underneath and then just clicked it back on, thinking it would work normally....


There is usually a metal piece under the space bar, if it isn't seated properly the space bar will teeter. Try to remove again and see if they metal bracket is seated correctly.

Fan noise and space bar issue


Heyo, the fan needs to be cleaned. Your environment air may be the culprit...if that is the case, I am sure the space bar is doing that for the same reason. If you can afford to take it to the shop to have the shell taken off and cleaned properly, I would do it.
