Re: spacebar was pulled off
These can be tricky to snap back into place. YOu have to make sure the wire used to help hold the spacebar in place is in correctly before you can snap it back on.
You have to make sure it is on the correct way or you will install it backward and it will look funny and get stuck. If you fail to put it back on correctly you can always use a butterknife or a flathead screwdriver to pop it off and try again.
Are any of the connection parts damaged? Does it still look like it will reconnect?

The reason for this happening is that the metal bar under your spacebar is not properly attached. It's time consuming to properly fix it, but it's an easy fix at that.
All you need to do is remove your spacebar and metal bar (shaped somewhat like a tall C, if held sideways). On the bottom of the spacebar will be approximately 2-3 small clips in which the metal bar will snap into. Once snapped into place, you will want to look at the area where the spacebar goes. There should be two small clips at each end. With the metal bar clipped into the spacebar, you want to place the "ends" of the metal bar under the clips on the keyboard and very carefully place the spacebar into the hole on the keyboard and snap it into place. Now test it out and it should work fine. If not, it's likely that the metal bar came out from under the keyboard clips. The annoying part is snapping the spacebar into place without having the metal piece come out from under those clips, so you may need to perform this task a few times.
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...
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.
Looks like something has been spilt down behind the spacebar or much dirt has accumulated in among the keys, or the spring has come unstuck the rebounds the spacebar back to it's original position. You will have to open the back of the notebook and try to assess what's wrong back there. I would asume that your spring has come loose from the spacebar and all that needs to be done is to clip it back into it's position, eithir that or a good clean to get rid of all the sticky matter that is back there.
I took mine off to clean under it and had a similar problem. After a bit of struggling I figured it out. I will try to explain it as best as I can, but forgive the non-technical language:
There are two gray plastic pieces on the space bar that must be that must be latched to the two white plastic pieces on the computer. The gray pieces pop off the space bar easily. Take them and put them on the white pieces on the computer so that the white arms lay across (and snap into) the top and bottom of the gray piece. The middle of the gray piece will sit in between the two arms that are not "holding" the gray piece. Then take the space bar and put the metal part into the hole on one side (outside of the plastic pieces) and then push it over so you can put the opposite metal part into the other side. Then push the space bar straight down and it will snap into place.
the prongs of the floating plastic frame need to sit inside the clips of the spacebar key, you can't just clip it back on with the prongs either up or down. It's fiddly, you need a paperclip or thin screwdriver to do it, but it's stopped the sticking problem.
