Not 100% on your model laptop, but on some leptop keyboards only the middle unit acts as a spring to return the spacebar to its resting position. As far as replacement with house hold items, the only thing that comes to mind is trying a fat rubberband. Cut it so its a strip and double over a few bits to make a pad of sorts.


Best of luck.

I broke my spacebar off my laptop gateway computer! How do i fix this?


Of all the keys on the keyboard, replacing the SPACEBAR is probably the most difficult. The SPACEBAR is kept even by a metal wire that is inserted into slots on each leg of the plastic bar key. However, you have to get the wire into the slots without depressing the wire. If you push the wire down, you compress the wire and installation becomes impossible. As a general rule, do not remove the SPACEBAR unless absolutely necessary. If you remove the SPACEBAR, remove several surrounding key caps also. This will let you get some tools under the SPACEBAR wire later on. Once the SPACEBAR is reinserted, you can easily replace any of the other key caps.

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

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.
