Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
The keyboard space bar is not working. All other keys are working.
The product is a Dell Inspiron 2650 pc notebook, not the 2200 listed below.
thanks - jake18
Only two possibilities, first is the rocker springs at each end or the bar are causingit to not make contact. or the bubble switches under the keyboard. I had a similar problem on an inspiron 6400 and I had to VERY CAREFULLY remove the keyboard,then the button to reach the bubble switch which had lost the plastic bushing that covered the shorting contact, good luck given the insane price that dell wanted for a new keyboard fixing it myself was the option.

Since I wasn't getting any answers here, I finally mustered up the nerve to pop the spacebar off my laptop. My boyfriend raised a very good point: My warranty was very over and I basically had nothing to lose.
So, the spacebar can be popped off a Dell Inspiron 2650 pc notebook.
Now as for what my problem was, I'm not entirely certain. I took a damp Q-tip and swabbed beneath the keys (as well as the top of some other dirty keys) I then popped the spacebar back on and it seems to be working just fine. Perhaps it was a bit of dirt, or maybe the spacebar just wasn't on properly the first time.
I figured out on my own what the bubble it. You learn something new everyday I suppose. ;]
In the end, am very happy to say that my laptop keyboard works just fine now.

turn your keyboard upside down and tap it a few times. if that doesnt solve the problem repeat.
If it still won't work write back for more ideas.
