Hello,

If it not under warranty I would suggest to open the laptop and reseat the Keyboard cable. Also it might just be that the keyboard is simply faulty - as the space bar is close to bv so maybe it was damaged some time ago. The last assumption I would have that liquid has been spilled onto the keyboard - It stuck bv and space together and everytime you type space, the key that are hooked with the dried liquid come down with it.

Cursor jumps when typing


This is usually caused by the thumbs coming in contact with the touchpad below the spacebar when typing. Make sure to keep your thumbs raised or resting lightly on the spacebar.

Try pressing the Function key and F7. The function key is 2 keys to the left of the spacebar if you are having trouble finding it.

My spacebar on my acer 6390 came off please help


Hello.

Generally, the spacebar cannot be repaired, but it's worth a try:

Use a hot melt glue gun.

Turn your laptop upside down.

Put glue on the spacebar.

Press into place.

Hope this helps.

Spacebar not responding on Toshiba laptop Satellite


Since the spacebar is the most used key on the keyboard, it is likely a hardware failure of the spacebar itself. Replacement keyboards can be found on EBay and normally run about $20

The spacebar doesn't work consistantly unless ''pounded''


The spacebar is the most often used switch on your keyboard, so, yes, it's from overuse, but also from
the fact that it is the longest key on your keyboard and the closest to the edge, all of this combining to
make it the dirtiest key on the board.

So, get a keyboard cleaning kit, either professional or DIY which would consist of the following, cotton
swabs, compressed air, and maybe a toothbrush and realize that all the stuff that accumulates under
your keyboard's space key makes it harder to depress to the point where contact is made.

2 - hold down the button on either side of the spacebar, type a titile (any character from a - z)(SPECIAL ENTRY light will turn on)

Keyboard spacebar sticking


Just solved it, after a bit of tinkering...

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.
