The space bar on my IBM Whellwriter 10, Series II will not work. Every other key works. How can I fix it?

You probably need a keyboard rebuild but you can try this. Gently pry the space bar off take something thin like a tooth pick and see if it will work when pushing down in the opening with the spring in it if it works stretch the spring just a little and try. If it doesn't contact Geo. beyers Co. @800-392-8085 for a rebuild. Tell them O'Reilly sent you.

Space bar is not working, all other keys are working fine.

if the keyboard is too old and if you have used it a lot, then ou have to replace the keyboard. The space bar alone had gone.

I have to push real hard to get the space bar to work. I have a Dell inspiron1520. It has done this before and it got better...It happens after I shut the laptop.

I have a collection of Dell laptops dating back to the '90s, and I've experienced this problem with a couple of them. What I found is the problem is related to the space bar becoming partially detached from the keyboard mechanism. this is usually because the plastic clips on the spacebar key is broken, or slipped off the mating plastic piece on the mechanism. Is one part of your space bar loose or floppy? If so, you can try to gently push down on the loose end to try an get the clips to snap into the mechanism. If that doesn't work ...
I haven't taken my space bar off, but you should be able to gently lift it up with your fingertips, or by using a small plastic scribe, and separate the bar from the mechanism. Look at the clips on the bottom of the key to see if any are broken or missing. If so, you can contact Dell and see about getting a new keyboard, since it should be under warranty. I just did that with a Studio 1537 that arrived last week with a broken Control key. Dell Fed-Exed a ney keyboard immediately and it took mayby 10 minutes to install once I unpacked it.

You can easily fix your space bar. I fixed mine last month when my daughter pulled it out of the keyboard. I used this video tutorial guide to help install the space bar key back into place. Its really very simple. have a look:

Compaq Presario, OS Windows Vista Basic. She wanted to adjust size of web sites, as they overlapped the screen. Instead she enlarged them, to the point that, I cannot scroll or push up to reach OK button...

You can resize windows without the mouse.
If the windows is maximized: press and hold the ALT key and then press the SPACE BAR.
Now press the R key. This will restore the window to a non-maximized state.

To resize: press and hold the ALT key, and then press the SPACE BAR.
Now press the S key to size the window.
Next, use the cursor keys to resize the window to your liking and press Enter when done.

Acer laptop spacebar fell off

The space bar key is connected tothe keyboard a little bit differently then any other key.
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.
Put the space bar key back inplace and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place.
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.
