Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
The bottom part of my spacebar has to be pressed down really hard for it to work... is there anyway to fix this?
It seems that the button below spacebar is broken, there is a small plastic button which teared up sometime due to using the button over time time, try to replace the keybaord, you can check local shops for replacing single space key.

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.

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.

there might be some junk underneath the keyboard turn off computer
open the screen and lift the computer so that edge of keyboard is on table
GENTLY tap the computer and watch to see if something comes out
if not then you will need to clean keyboard or get a new one
