Why does my delete key act like a spacebar?


There are a couple options:
1. Your keyboard is broken, you need to replace it.
2. Try unplugging / replugging it un and or restarting your computer, that may fix the issue.
3. Your keyboard layout might have changed. If you are using a Windows computer, you can press CTRL + SHIFT to switch between layouts. Or you can go to Control Panel -> Clock, Language, and Region -> Change Keyboards or other input methods. From here, you can change your keyboard layout back to use.

Inside the key, there is a metal bar the makes the spacebar key depress from anywhere you press it. Either this bar as unclipped from its hinges or they have broken.

Spacebar somewhat jammed


There may be something stuck under the bar like a crumb of biscuit or a bit of grit that stops the bar from free movement.

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.

Can't/use/my/spacebar/ don/'t/have/recovery/cds/for/satellite/135/using/vista


Hi,
I'm afraid that your recovery CD's won't help you get the space bar working.
There could well be dust, biscuit crumbs, hairs etc that's preventing the spacebar from working, turn the laptop off but don't close the lid, stand the laptop on it's side and get yourself a clean, dry paintbrush.
Start to brush the keys and gently tap the keyboard with the other end of the brush to knock out any foreign objects that could be trapped under the spacebar.
Once your happy it's clean turn the laptop on and see if the spacebar works.
If you still have the same symptoms then the keyboard will have to be replaced.
You can use the on-screen keyboard to substitute for the spacebar for the time being.



Good luck.

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

Spacebar replacement


Crazy Glue. Individual keys are not available for resale at reasonable price. You could replace entire keyboard cheaper. That is an option for you. Contact local pc shop.

Spacebar stuck


Ok ya gonna haveta get a New Keyboard for ya Lappy... they are relatively easy to replace they are an "All-in-one" thing and usually have a ribbon cable that plugs into the motherboard... ya could disconnect it for now and plug in an external keyboard to ya Lappy to get ya going... But be gentle getting the old keyboard out.. maybe even go online and get a Manual to see how it comes apart.. else it's off to the shop. GL
