Hello,

your space bar is not frequently responding because the key has hooked or not contacting the motherboard key pad well.

Remove the space bar key from the keyboard, press then fix it back again. Make sure it is well fixed and bounces when you press the key.

That's all you need to do for your space bar key to respond. The space bar key is not contacting the key pad properly, remove the key and try to fix it back properly.

Good luck.

Some keys do not respond


Disconnect and reconnect your computer keyboard, then restart your computer. Sometimes a poor connection can result in keys not working on your keyboard Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard. Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector. The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard. Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen. You must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins. Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another. Clean Under Desktop Keys Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working. Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key. Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off. Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key. Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs---other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer. Position and press down on the key to snap it into place. Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary. Clean Under Laptop Keys Turn your laptop off, then use a flathead screwdriver or knife under a key corner, prying the key off gently. You will hear a snap as the key detaches. Remove the key retainer remaining on your laptop using your knife or screwdriver under the corner, then popping it off with a gentle twist. Remove the space bar by pulling it off after your insert the screwdriver or knife underneath the bar. Clean underneath your laptop keys using cotton swabs or a soft cloth dampened with water or alcohol. You can also use compressed air to remove dust, hair and other debris. Replace your laptop keys by placing the key retainer into position. If you cannot remember the position, copy another retainer's position by removing another key. Insert the keypad into the retainer, then position the key over the retainer while pressing down on the key. You should hear the key snap into place. Place your laptop's space bar over the space bar slots, then snap it into place

DiNovo Edge space bar and "n" key do not respond


I have the same problem with my dinovo after 2 years of usage, and i have found a temporary fix.
The temporary fix is to connect the dinovo to another computer and then hammer the keys vigorously, prefferably if dragging your finger over the keys, the keys will then start funcion immediately. Then connect dinovo to the first (main) computer again, and here the keys wont function, but after hammering them again vigorously it also starts working again here. However this is a temporary solution and the problem will probably reocurr. Notably hammering the keys on the first (main) computer wont yield any results even after long time of hammering without the second computer-lockup. Signalerror from logitech to specific computer? If there was dust this would never work on other computer so fast, and the error would not reocurr after being fixed.

Keyboard not responding or typing random letters


You have stuck keys from when you removed to clean. Remove the stuck keys and see if it works OK when you press the rubber cap instead of key
The back space one may have a link under it if it is a wide one ensure it is fitted correctly

Well could try to clean it, but I don't think it will solve your problem.  Just get a new one. Good Luck.
