Re: my spacebar on my laptop got ripped off

Hard to help with a physical problem without being there....The plastic brackets that hold the key on probably broke. I would just buy a used keyboard and install it, they are only about $30 on ebay. here is a link on how to replace it

For the other guy with the power problem: It is NOT the battery. Does the machine flash any lights when you hit the power button? if the lights flash 3 times then it is not recieving power from your AC adapter.

Try another AC adapter. Be warned these use a unique ac adapter and you cant buy them at most stores, best bet is ebay most dealers and Hp want $50-$100 for them.

Why does the space bar only have a centre touch point

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.

How do I put my spacebar back on?

Firstly ensure you have all the parts - there may be one or two sets of small plastic hinged brackets. These go on first to the laptop - then the key should snap in.

Be careful to check the brackets are not broken or worn first!

The two pieces of metal should snap into small slots on either side. Then you press it straight down so the plastic piece locks into the button on the membrane on the keyboard assembly. Good Luck

Spacebar on my pc wont snap back on after removal

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.

Took spacebar off to clean up a pop spill...metal bar NOT attatch

There might be a metal wire if it is missing, which snaps to the keyboard, you may need a new keyboard.
If you are unsure, you should probably thake it to your local computer repair shop.
Good Luck.

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?
