Try to clean your keyboard key. check the buttom of the key if there was dirt or something cloging in the key to be press. or the worse case scenario of that is you need to buy a new keyboard..

Fix spacebar


On a Desktop, just purchase a new kb for $16 or so. On a laptop, it's an involved process to replace the kb.

To get a space without a spacebar, try these two suggestions:

- Press Alt/32 (that's Alt with 3 2) then release the Alt key.
- Run OSK and click the spacebar.

The actual model number MIGHT get you a repair procedure in a Google or Youtube search for "repair spacebar".

(Remington Streamliner) the space bar automatically tabs instead of moving one space forward. How do I fix this?


This can mean that the spacebar is not being tapped hard enough, the spacebar is sticky, the escapement is sticky, or the spacebar linkage needs adjusted. If the letters do not cause this, then the escapement being sticky is less of a concern. Sometimes the touch on the spacebar is right on the point where the escapement mechanism just barely escapes and doesn't lock in. First try tapping the spacebar more firmly to see if this helps.

Spacebar on keyboard makes my computer go to sleep mode


Sounds like your keyboard is sending the wrong signal (the one telling your PC to enter sleep mode) to your motherboard when you press space key, which (if true) would indicate it's faulty. It could also be you've contracted a virus and is playing a particularly nasty practical joke on you (let's hope that's all it does). Try connecting another keyboard to your PC and see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you'll need to clean your computer of any viruses. Try also disconnecting your mouse and see if that changes anything. If your keyboard comes with a shortcut utility software for it, run it and check there's no shortcut set on your keyboard's space bar. You've additionally specified you're not using wireless keyboard, but could you also please write what OS you're on?

My dog knocked over my Compaq keyboard. Now the divided spacebar is opposite what it should be. Instead of spacing on the right spacebar I have to hit the left side. How do I fix this?


Pull the space bar off by using your fingers. Underneath, you'll find a metal rod. Take note on which way it is facing, and how it fits. Make sure nothing in broken under the space bar, then put the space bar back on making sure it hooks in correctly.

I have a mac Laptop and the space button on the bottom of the keyboard is stuck down .. can this be fixed?


It is tricky to repair the space bar. It has a plunger in the middle and is held in place by tension clips. The tension clips are what make the spacebar pop back up. Usually one clip comes loose and the other side still bounces. If the spacebar is stuck down with no bounce, I would check to see if there is something wedged under the spacebar. Get a can of compress air and blow under it, hopefully this will release whatever is under there. Only take the spacebar off carefully without jerking it upwards. If it breaks the clip holder at each end, you will need a new KB.

Good Luck.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Space bar is sticky du to liquid accident ( soft


Get a Electrical/Electronic solvent spray from RS, give it a good spray (with Power Off!) and operate it lots of times. The spray will evaporate naturally and may remove the gunk! Ian.

My keyboard is inserting spaces where they don't belong.  it is usually around R's, N's and spaces (I  press the   spacebar once it it inserts 2 or three spaces, the  faster I type the   worse it gets.)...

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
