Question about ASUS Eee PC 900HD Netbook
Does the spacebar feel sluggish? - does it move like the other buttons do? It does sound a little bit like the keyboard would have a problem at that point of the board. You might need to replace the whole keyboard to get it working properly.
I would recommend that you get someone to look at the keyboard in person before you go ahead and replace the whole keyboard. It is very cheap for this laptop. But if its not a actual problem with the keyboard then the problem would remain unsolved.

The keyboard takes a lot of abuse and as durable as it is, they will eventually wear out. It is a very inexpensive part to replace and does not require a lot of skill. The fact that the touch pad is acting up could indicate that they are interconnected. I would replace both. The Touch pad is a more involved part to replace and I would suggest you get some help or pay to have it replaced.
You can order them off of sites like eBay, then watch a YouTube video on how to do it.
