The spacebar on my asus eee pc won't space properly, you have to keep pressing to make a space. I made sure it was clean and it still has a problem.

    Thank you for your response. The space bar lags a bit and sometimes works fine if you tap it twice. Frustrating sometimes. Sounds like a new keyboard might be the way I have to go. I have only had this Eee PC 1000HA for 14 months. To bad, because I really like it but don't have such favorable review anymore.....

Hello,

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.

How to replace the keyboard:

Replacing the keyboard is very easy and simple on this laptop.

Disconnect the battery and the power cable.

Step 1. Begin by locating the small metal clips holding the keyboard in place on the top of the keyboard there are 4 or 5 of them.

Step 2. Use the small flat screwdriver to hold them in while you pull up the edge of the keyboard.

Step 3. Repeat step 2 for all the clips on the top until the keyboard becomes loose and you will see the keyboard connector below.

Step 4. Use the small flat screwdriver to carefully release the tabs holding the keyboard cable in place. Pull the cable out from the connector.

Step 5. Replace the keyboard, replace the connector back into the slot. Push the clips on the sides of the slot back in so that the cable is held in place.

Step 6. Put down the keyboard into its place, it should snap in, we are done.

Reconnect the battery and the power cable.

Test the keyboard by powering on the machine.

-- Let me know how you get along with it.

Why does the space bar only have a centre touch point


The reason for this happening is that the metal bar under your spacebar is not properly attached. It's time consuming to properly fix it, but it's an easy fix at that.

All you need to do is remove your spacebar and metal bar (shaped somewhat like a tall C, if held sideways). On the bottom of the spacebar will be approximately 2-3 small clips in which the metal bar will snap into. Once snapped into place, you will want to look at the area where the spacebar goes. There should be two small clips at each end. With the metal bar clipped into the spacebar, you want to place the "ends" of the metal bar under the clips on the keyboard and very carefully place the spacebar into the hole on the keyboard and snap it into place. Now test it out and it should work fine. If not, it's likely that the metal bar came out from under the keyboard clips. The annoying part is snapping the spacebar into place without having the metal piece come out from under those clips, so you may need to perform this task a few times.

Here's an example image...

Eee pc r101 keyboard not working properly. Some of the keys won't type the correct letters and type the function letter or symbol instead or just random numbers. Also the touch pad and mouse click is...


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.

My asus eee pc900hd runs on (skip spaces) while


Well the easiest way to narrow the root of the problem would be to eliminate whether or not this is a software related problem.
So basically you will want to do a fresh install of the operating system. If this fixes the issue GREAT! if not your keyboard is more than likely experiencing a short.
Think of your keyboard as a grid of horizontal and vertical wires, when you press a key, that key makes 1 horizontal and one vertical wire connect this tells the computer which key is being pressed that it is also making a connection for the spacebar.

If you need more clarification or help feel free to leave additional comments but I would start with backing up any files you have and formatting the harddrive and reinstalling the operating system

Webcam driver


Some times BIOS disable webcam after updating it.

To enable it do the followings:

1. Restart your Eee PC.
2. Press F2 while booting (to enter BIOS sittings)
3. Go to "advanced" tab (by pressing right arrow)
4. Select "Onboard Device Configuration" (by pressing down arrow)
5. From there you can find if "Onboard Camera" is enabled or not.
6. If not, just press enter to pick "Enabled"

I hope that would help :-)
