Since it seems to be a software issue, the next thing to try is to create a new user and log in as that user. If the typing issue is present, you'll probably have to back up your data and reinstall OS X to cure things. If it's not present, you have an error in your main user's Preferences folder.

Yes, you can purchase laptop part like keyboard alone but sometimes it is not available in the market. I suggest to go to repair shop and they are selling keyboard part for laptop or even they have spare keyboard same as yours.

The space bar on my desk top computer will not work. I have to use the (-) sign to space out my words when I type. What can I do to get it to work? Can a virus cause it to do that?

This is an electro-mechanical problem with the keyboard. A virus could cause this on a programmable keyboard, but most likely the keyboard itself is bad. Try plugging the keyboard into another computer or laptop (some laptops will accept a 5pin or usb) and see what happens. If it works, scan for viruses. (It is doubtful it is a virus.)

If i press the space bar on my laptop it displays the letter X, what seems to be the problem?

Have you or someone else spilled water or other liquid on the keyboard? It's either that or a virus.
To clean the virus download AVG for free. Search for it in google.

To clean the keyboard is much more difficut. Probably best to take it to a shop if you're not that handy with electronics.

Hp pavilion dv1000 laptop pc keyboard not working properly.

Does this computer KB work alright in SAFE mode? If it does then drivers and/or viruses are the problem. If it doesn't work in SAFE mode then it could be drivers and or keyboard. Now try booting into BIOS. At the date prompt you usually can type any keyboard letter. If the keyboard works here, then you definately have driver/virus issues. If not replace the keyboard.

Logitech keyboard wireless

You need to go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel & find the "regional & language settings". Set the country and related settings to wherever you are (as you're currently using a foreign setting).
