I took mine off to clean under it and had a similar problem. After a bit of struggling I figured it out. I will try to explain it as best as I can, but forgive the non-technical language:

There are two gray plastic pieces on the space bar that must be that must be latched to the two white plastic pieces on the computer. The gray pieces pop off the space bar easily. Take them and put them on the white pieces on the computer so that the white arms lay across (and snap into) the top and bottom of the gray piece. The middle of the gray piece will sit in between the two arms that are not "holding" the gray piece. Then take the space bar and put the metal part into the hole on one side (outside of the plastic pieces) and then push it over so you can put the opposite metal part into the other side. Then push the space bar straight down and it will snap into place.

If the small plastic hinges are still attached to the keyboard, then place the key over these hinges, align it with the others keys and press down on the key until it click onto these hinges.

Fn spacebar


Angie,

Try using Shift+Fn+Spacebar, to see if that reverses the situation.

I broke my spacebar off my laptop gateway computer! How do i fix this?


Of all the keys on the keyboard, replacing the SPACEBAR is probably the most difficult. The SPACEBAR is kept even by a metal wire that is inserted into slots on each leg of the plastic bar key. However, you have to get the wire into the slots without depressing the wire. If you push the wire down, you compress the wire and installation becomes impossible. As a general rule, do not remove the SPACEBAR unless absolutely necessary. If you remove the SPACEBAR, remove several surrounding key caps also. This will let you get some tools under the SPACEBAR wire later on. Once the SPACEBAR is reinserted, you can easily replace any of the other key caps.

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!

Problemwith spacebar


If you take all those tiny screws out of the bottom of the keyboard you'll see a circuitboard with three copper "design" spots(usually 3) under the spacebar..........the ones NOT in the center of the spacebar are dirty. You could use some alcohol or acetone to clean the outside "designs".....(warning) Acetone will damage plastic!!!!!!!!
there are a lot of rubber caps that WILL fall out of place when you turn it over) (the actual keys could fall out too) (Be careful when you take off the bottom of the keyboard!!!!) Clean the ones that align with the SPACEBAR!!!! Dont touch or clean anything else that wasn't working....... Gently place the bottom back on and screw down the bottom cover with a cross pattern.....(left>right...top>bottom).....If this dosn't work....the best part is that a new keyboard........is fairly cheap....mtg

Took spacebar off to clean up a pop spill...metal bar NOT attatch


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.
