Try getting the cans of compressed air you would get at an office supply store, power down the laptop and trydrying the board with short bursts of air, there may be some dampness under the keys interfereing with the imput signals from the key pads.

My dog knocked over my Compaq keyboard. Now the divided spacebar is opposite what it should be. Instead of spacing on the right spacebar I have to hit the left side. How do I fix this?


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.

I took my spacebar off to clean it and i dont know how to put it back on?


There is a rubber part that is designed to spring up when you release the space bar - this is the contacts that is the electrical push button. At each end the metal bar is hooked to the plastic (the long space bar key). There may be a couple springs found as well - they should seat on the base. Connect all pieces and place the space bar key over the area where it aligns to the keyboard and snap it place with a slight force.

Space bar sticks


If you can get the space bar button off without messing up the button or the tactile underneath it then get if off and with a damp cottonball with glass cleaner wipe off the button and then wipe off the area where the plastic tactile is. As long as you can press on it and have it go down and come back up then the tactile and area is clean.

Important thing will be to get the button to go back on properly.

If your having problems with getting the button off and don't want to go thru the cleaning process then replacing the keyboard would be the 2nd option.

The rubber plug below the spacebar button is faulty.The button needs to be removed gently and the rubber plug below it which touches the board below should be cleaned.If this does not solve the issue the rubber plug below the button needs to be replaced.Its a common problem.

thanks and please do not forget to rate the solution.keep updated.

If not, then the keyboard cable has probably come loose.
Look for some way to remove the keyboard. Sometimes a screw from underneath, sometimes two or three small catches at front of keyboard (small gaps in metal plate in front of space bar). Sometimes top plastic bar above keyboard slides sideways.

Keyboard cable uses goes into a header socket - to refit:
Switch off and remove battery and power first!
1. Prise up each end of the socket with a blunt knife - the outer part of the socket should move up a few mm
2. Push keyboard cable down fully
3. Push down each end of the header socket so it is flush with the lower part of the socket.
4. Test keyboard
