SOURCE: Acer laptop spacebar fell off

The space bar key is connected tothe keyboard a little bit differently then any other key.
clip_image002.jpg
There is a metal retainer connectedto the space bar key (on some keyboard models). Separate the retainer from thespace bar key with a flathead screwdriver.

Install the retainer back inplace as it shown on the picture. You have to engage the retainer with thesmall hooks on the keyboard.
clip_image006.jpg
Put the space bar key back inplace and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place.
clip_image008.jpg
That’s it. The space bar key isinstalled back in place and should work as before. If you still cannot fix yourkeyboard, then you’ll have to find a new oneand replace it.
Pleas rate my solution on fixya if you are done.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: My laptop seems to have the space bar stuck down.i

I have heard and did experience laptop spacer bar not registering when you press it.

I have a HP zv6000 with this problem, here is how I solved it, as it is a manufacturers design fault:

If you have the maintenance manual (get it of the web free), remove the key board. Place a small block of about 3/16" of folded paper between the underside of the spacer bar pad and the board itself. This it to help raise the spacer bar for the next step.

On the underside center of the spacer bar is a small black silicone rubber button, that may now have enough space between it and the underside of the spacer bar (after applying the sandwich of folded paper). The object of this is to enable you to place a 1/4" square of masking tape between the top of the silicone button and the underside of the spacer bar.

If this can be done, the tape will stay in place very well and in essence raise the spacer bar by the tape thickness, thus aiding in overcoming an unresponsive operation of the spacer bar. You may wish to place two thicknesses of tape in place for positive assurance. I only used one and it seems to work well, but I would recommend two thicknesses of tape, as the bar may still occasionally not register. But trust me it is much better now.

I'm sorry I did not take any pictures and I am not a member here, but I hope someone will find this very useful and post it for all to see.

Good luck to all.

Andy, Delta, Canada.

The spacebar on my laptop doesn't always leave spaces between words, what is wrong with it?


Inside the key, there is a metal bar the makes the spacebar key depress from anywhere you press it. Either this bar as unclipped from its hinges or they have broken.

Spacebar somewhat jammed


There may be something stuck under the bar like a crumb of biscuit or a bit of grit that stops the bar from free movement.

My Dell Latitude D630 spacebar came off. Nothing looks broken, but I can't get it back on.


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.

Spacebar on keyboard makes my computer go to sleep mode


Sounds like your keyboard is sending the wrong signal (the one telling your PC to enter sleep mode) to your motherboard when you press space key, which (if true) would indicate it's faulty. It could also be you've contracted a virus and is playing a particularly nasty practical joke on you (let's hope that's all it does). Try connecting another keyboard to your PC and see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you'll need to clean your computer of any viruses. Try also disconnecting your mouse and see if that changes anything. If your keyboard comes with a shortcut utility software for it, run it and check there's no shortcut set on your keyboard's space bar. You've additionally specified you're not using wireless keyboard, but could you also please write what OS you're on?

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.


You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

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.

My dog knocked over my Compaq keyboard. Now the divided spacebar is opposite what it should be. Instead of spacing on the right spacebar I have to hit the left side. How do I fix this?


Pull the space bar off by using your fingers. Underneath, you'll find a metal rod. Take note on which way it is facing, and how it fits. Make sure nothing in broken under the space bar, then put the space bar back on making sure it hooks in correctly.

I have one problem playin damnation. In the prolouge stage first time when catchin the ledge to get up, it says press space to pull up. I am pressing it but no action is being done. Are there some tricks...


Did you change your key binds? Check your options and your control settings. Find what your spacebar is bound to (what action happens when you hit the space bar.) if you can't find the spacebar, then you need to find out where it's SUPPOSED to be bound to (climb, pull up, whatever) and reset the key bind

Or just read this...:



sidekick2008spacebarpicture.jpgIs the space bar on your Sidekick LX not working when you are trying to text or in AIM? Do you have thesame space bar button problem on your T-mobile Sidekick 2008? Does the Sidekick spacebar work in other apps though?
If so then this fix is for you.
1. Open the AutoText & Spelling screen. From the Jump screen, press the MENU button, then select Settings > AutoText & Spelling.
2. Uncheck the following settings:
    • Highlight misspelled words
    • Auto correct spelling
3. Exit out of the settings screen and try it out.
Hopefully, this will have solved your issue.
How to check for misspelled words with these two options unchecked?
Run a manual spell check on T-mobile Sidekick: To run a spell check while in a text field from any Edit Text submenu, or by using the keyboard shortcut by pressing MENU +S.

Space bar does not work - any suggestions what is wrong?


Assuming this is a WW1000 the space bar will come off with a nlittle prying pressure under the center of the bar. Remove it and check for debris under it.
