When I hit the spacebar it reads one "hit" as 7 or 8 spaces every time, how can i correct this?
Also when I get to the end of the page the scroll wheel does not automatically revert back to a marginal position, i have to hit "enter" and move it back by hand. any thoughts? your help is appreciated.

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.
The keyboard acts as a text tool when you've clicked in a text box and as a scroll button when you click outside a text box on a web page. Since you say you have a laptop, I'm guessing that you click the text box to type, start typing, and while you're typing, your palm touches the mouse track pad just enough to register as a click while the mouse cursor is elsewhere on the page. I'm not sure if there's a setting to make the space bar stop scrolling altogether but there are settings to make the track pad less sensitive if your track pad manufacturer supports it. For WIndows 7, go to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound and click Mouse under Devices and Printers. As mine is a Synaptics device, this window gives me an extra tab with extra settings. It may be worth checking out yours to see if you can turn down the sensitivity. Some laptops also have a handy key combination to turn the track pad on and off. Mines Function F7, but it's probably manufacturer specific. Check your laptop documentation to see if this might be an option.
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.
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.
To clear margins, you have to hit the return button to find the left margin, then hit margin release and back space to move the margin left or spacebar to move to the right, then hit left margin button to set the new position. Right margin now. Hold spacebar down and find right margin position, hit margin rease and either spacebar to the right or backspace to the left to the new margin position then hit right margin button to set the new position. Tabs now. hit the tab key, when it goes to the first set tab, hit the tab clear key, then hit the tab key again, then tab clear again etc.
Take the wire piece out of the keyboard and attach it to the space bar by snapping the long horizontal section into the notched moldings you will see along one edge of the underside of the spacebar. Now turn the spacebar back over, orient it with the high side toward you and the lower side toward the other keys, fit the retainer ends into the slots in the keyboard, and push the spacebar center pin back into its hole. The wire is not really a retainer; it is there to transfer to the center pin any pressure applied to either end of the bar.
