Question: Malfunctioning spacebar Inspiron 15

Sticking space bar

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000series,and, it's making me NUTS!
The spacebar isn't doing its job about 75% of the time. Seems to be the right side as opposed to the left side.
I have checked for hair, dust, crumbs, faeries etc .. nothing ..
If I pry off that puppy, am I going to forever regret it ?
I do believe I am under warranty of some sort ..
Thanks for listening .. OH .. some times my 'E' like to go

When typing the words skip to and begin in other places in the sentence or in the paragraph. Annoying. Also the only way I can space is to stop after every word and hit the center of the space bar. I have vacuumed my keyboard thoroughly, and, although better, not operating properly.

Answer:Keyboard (and spacebar) malfunctioning.

Laptop or PC?If it's a PC then you can replace the keyboard. If laptop then you could use an external USB keyboard. If it is specific keys (like the spacebar) then it can sometimes be cured, at least temporarily, by turning the computer off then giving the offending key(s) several quite hard taps.I doubt this is a software issue but the keyboard itself playing up.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Not quite sure where to ask this, but I was wondering if someone might be able to help me with my problem. Last night the spacebar, backspace, and enter buttons stoped responding. Also, I can no longer scroll up and down on a page with the arrow buttons. Before this problem happend, I think I some how clicked on the Ctrl button and some screen came up about something but I don't quite remember what it was about. Also, the shaded box thing that appears behind something when you click on it kept moving up and down before I shut it down. This no longer happens but it may be linked to my current problem. I called the Dell Support but they told me there is a problem with my hardware and I can't understand how that could be since it was working fine just a short while ago and I didn't do anything to it. Nothing has been spilt on it and it hasn't been hit or anything. By the way, I am typing this with an on-screen keyboard which explains the spaces. Quite annoying. I hope someone can help me. Thanks.

I am currently using windows 8.1 on my Dell Inspiron N5010. While the wireless module is working perfectly, the Ethernet port gets frequently disconnected due to unknown reasons. To make it function again, I need to reinstall its drivers every time. Can anyone figure out the cause behind this and solutions if any?

Answer:Realtek Ethernet port malfunctioning Dell Inspiron N5010

Bad cable, bad Ethernet port, bad router or switch. You can go to Realtek and download the latest driver from them.

My spacebar only works when I'm holding the shift key.

Please can you help me by suggesting what might be doing this....

I've tried other keyboards - same problem
 

Answer:Please-help-fix-my-spacebar!!

You could try changing language settings of your keyboard, and then changing them back.

Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages Tab -> Details -> Settings Tab -> Add -> check that box for Dvorak -> OK -> Default input language -> English US Dvorak -> Apply -> Default input language -> English US US -> OK -> OK.

If that didn't fix it then I don't know. It was just a guess anyway.

When you changed keyboards, did you try USB and PS/2?

Question: Took off spacebar.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop, and today I started to take off some of the keys so that I could clean underneath them. I had no problem putting the alt, ctrl, and arrow keys back on, but the spacebar refuses to click back. I read an online manual (http://www.wikihow.com/Pop-a-Key-Back-Onto-a-Dell-Laptop-Keyboard) on how to put keys back on. There are a few pieces that they describe in the manual as "u and o shaped pieces" that are supposed to rise a bit from the surface of the keyboard. The one in the middle(there are three for the spacebar) is risen, but the two on the ends lie flat. I don't know how I'm supposed to put my spacebar back on with those two pieces lying flat. Help?

By the way, you can only imagine how fun it was to type this with a tiny button for a spacebar.
 

Answer:Took off spacebar.

Have a good look at the underside of the spacebar and likewise look at those pieces lying flat. Get a pair of tweezers and or a fine screwdriver to lift the clips so you can get an idea of how they connect to the spacebar. Take your time to figure out how it all works and assuming you haven't damaged anything when removing you should be able to clip it back together quite successfully.

I have never seen Fn + Spacebar do anything.  On the paper that came with the ThinkPad, it says this magnifies the screen contents.  But nothing happens when using this with the net, or looking at an image, so when does this work?

Answer:Fn + Spacebar - when to use this?

It "magnifies" the screen by temporarily reducing the resolution. You need to have the ThinkPad Full Screen Magnifier utility installed for this to function.

I interpret your description to mean that striking the spacebar does not generate a space; the cursor does not advance.

Use on-screen keyboard
[*]Start ! all programs ! accessories ! Accessibility ! on-screen keyboard
[*]Open Notepad (or other suitable application such as this reply window)
[*]Use on-screen keyboard to test spacebar.[*]If on-screen keyboard experiences the same problem, then we need to dig deeper. Presently I have not located any help deciphering scancode maps.

You can perform a scancode 'hunt' by striking every key to confirm the generated character corresponds to the key. The hunt looks for the space for a different key stroke.

System Restore to a saved point that pre-dates this problem.

Question: X61 Spacebar

Hi, all a sudden last week I noticed that my lenovo x61 spacebar was loose, I quickly tried to push it back into place but it remained loose, I then noticed that some of the small black clips had broken off or were damaged/bent. As a result, I can no longer clip my spacebar in place and am having to press the rubber button everytime which is painful and time consuming. Would anyone know if it is still possible to clip back into place my spacebar, and if not, where I could buy a cheap one online? Thanks

Hi mikeyhg, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
 
If parts are broken, you probably need to replace the keyboard. You'll find them on eBay or can get them from IBM spare parts (the part numbers are in the Hardware Maintenance Manual).

Just wondering if other people have experienced problems with the spacebar on the B50-70 or if I have a fault? I've only had the machine for 1 month. If I hit the spacebar in the middle with reasonable amount of force it works fine. If I just do a light touch, specifically on either end of the spacebar, I can feel the button depress and click, but no space is actually generated. The result being that I can type along sentence and when I read it back a large number of spaces are missing in the text I have typed. I searched the forum and didn't see other people with issues, so may be I have a fault that needs to be sent back and repaired?

hi Trevor,
 
Can you try to shutdown or restart the machine and see if the keyboard backlights are lit during POST.
 
If it works, try to toggle the backlit feature via Fn+Spacebar and observe. Otherwise, if the backlights are still not working then I would recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report the problem as you likely need a keyboard replacement.

Try an external keyboard and see if it does the same thing. If so, then it is a Windows setting. If not, then your keyboard is broken.

I just bought a brand new Lenovo G550 laptop from Comet, and the space bar does not always register when I press it. If I hit it at normal typing pressure directly in the middle, then it works fine, but it requires more and more pressure to activate, the further towards the ends I press it. Since I normally use my thumb to press it on the far right-hand side, this means it does not work unless I type really hard! Has anyone got the same problem or can offer a solution? 

Answer:Spacebar does not always work

The actual "actuator" pad is under the middle of the Spacebaron keyboards. Due to different designs, some are more sensitiveto a key press near the ends.Look closely when you press the spacebar towards the ends.Does the whole bar move down uniformly?Or does it sort of pivot?There is a spring-like clip towards each end, and it is possiblethat one or the other is broken, or something is caughtunder the key.If it all seems to work properly, you may be forced to adaptyour typing style!

Question: Spacebar functions

Hi, I recently bought the Lenovo B590 laptop, and I've had some trouble with the spacebar actions. When doing a search in an internet search engine, using the spacebar doesn't provide a space, but rather selects any search suggestion that may pop up. Also, the spacebar scrolls down pages and decreases volume in media players. These are spacebar functions I'm not used to, and if there is any way to stop it from doing these things I would appreciate someone letting me know!

Answer:Spacebar functions

hi ernie_ran,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
This is indeed an odd function of the space bar (AFAIK, it shouldn't function differently on the B590).
 
Can you try to boot in Safe Mode with Networking and check if the space bar functions as a "space" while doing a search in an internet search engine (this will isolate third party apps that might be interferring with the spacebar function).
 
If the spacebar functions normally in Safe Mode, perform a clean boot and observe the machine in normal mode.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.

Purchased my T400 last april for college.  I always noticed it was a bit fragile, it felt like stuff was shifting around and that the battery would fall out.  But it stayed together and got mr through my first year of college. The space bar has been sticking for a couple of weeks now.  And when I was cleaning my laptop (blowing the dust out from the keys, etc) the spacebar fell clean off.  I snapped it back on, and it was fine for a while.  But then 10 minutes ago it fell off.  And all the little plastic pieces that hold it together fell apart. I certainly can't fix it myself.  Way too many tiny fragile pieces. Anyone know how/where/if I can get this fixed?   I find it odd that this happened, I don't smash the keyboard when typing or anything. Sarah

Answer:My spacebar FELL APART.

You probably have the perforated plate keyboard, rather than the solid plate keyboard. This problem is actually quite common in the perforated keyboard, i have seen this behaviour occuring in quite a few Thinkpads recently (albeit the user was a hard typer).
 
Do you still have warranty left?

Hi all, I have had a Toshiba L750 for about three years. Initially I upgrded it from Win 7 home 32bit to Win 7 Pro 64 bit and generally I have been happy with it. I prefer to use Internet Explorer 9, even though I have tried IE10 and IE11 plus Chrome and Firefox.

About a month ago I removed the standard HHD and put in a new 480GB SSD and did a fresh install of Win 7 Pro and SP1 and hopefully all relevant Toshiba drivers.

Sometimes windows dont open maximised so I would do Alt + spacebar the "X" to maximise the window, and that works on all but IE9. I know it worked on my old HDD, but not the SSD with the fresh install.

Typically hitting Alt + spacebar will bring up a small menu, but not with IE9.

Is there some setting I need to enable in IE9 or maybe the Registry?

Hoping for a solution, regards, Phil.

Hi Its been over 2 years since ive had the lenovo thinkpad T60 and in the past few days my thinkpad told me an argument was way overdue.The spacebar stopped working on the right side.I found a similar post with the same issue and will try that solution out tommorow when i get the correct screwdriver.Are there any other solutions that any of you could be kind enough to provide? If not where can i go about ordering a new lenovo T60 keyboard and how much would it cost.Let it be known I live in the UK and would like the quickest delivery possible(preferably from a UK based supplier) as this issue is severely affecting my productivity.I use the laptop on a daily basis and it now takes me alot more time and stress to write documents up. Thank you for both your time and patience forum volunteers.  

Answer:T60 spacebar not responding

usually these problems are only resolvable through a keyboard change, you can obtain a keyboard from ebay for around 40 pounds including delivery. There are several different manufacturers for the keyboard, all with different key response, if you like the key response of the current keyboard, then it is advisable that you order the same part no. version. The part number is on a sticker under your keyboard. (FRU 42T3209 and 39T7178 are compatible with the T60). You can remove the keyboard by first removing the palmrest, there is a total of 5 screws. If you need more instruction follow the manual in the link provided below. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-62733.html

Probably not the answer, but because my kids the laptops and are kinda pigs? We have had issues with food (bread crumbs, sesame seeds, ect) under the keys, particularly the space bar. More likely, since it's new its a hardware fault but if when pressing it you feel it''s not moving uniformly?

Question: X250 Spacebar

I recently bought an X250, and immediately upon using it, found that the spacebar is not as responsive as all the older thinkpads I've had in the past. Specifically, when I type I press on the right side of the spacebar to create a space, but my usual amount of force is no longer responded to by the keyboard. If I push harder, it will respond, but that's annoying because it slows down my typing speed. If I press on the middle of the spacebar it works much better, and if I press it with my left thumb it works better, too. Does that mean I'm typing wrong all these years, or did I end up with a bad key?  I have depot service, so would Lenovo address this if I send it in? If I send this in, do I need to remove all the data on the machine? Would they replace the spacebar or the entire keyboard as I saw somewhere? How long would it take? Gotta say that the keyboard is much worse than the X230 that I am coming from. Thanks for any heads up!

Question: Spacebar Issue

Hi folks. I recently bought myself an Aspire ES1-512 laptop for the purposes of writing and I've noticed that the spacebar only seems to work if you tap it firmly in the centre. If you tap it nearer to the edges/corners it doesn't produce a space which is quite annoying when you do a lot of typing. Just wondered if it was a fault with this laptop or if it's just how the spacebar is on this model. I've never experienced this on any other keyboard (including another Acer).Also, it's not a specific application this happens on, it happens on all of them (Word, Scrivener, Final Draft, and on internet search engines, emails, social media updates etc.).Cheers in advance,John

Hi Zoogu,
                
Welcome to Lenovo forums.
 
As per the query we understood that you are looking for the spacebar key not working in your Lenovo G5070 laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that you have cleaned the keyboard but still the key is very hard, check if there are any liquid spillages. As this might be the issue with the keyboard which needs to be replaced. Please visit the nearest service centre for further details.
 
Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
 Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

Hi

My granddaughter has a Toshiba Satellite A20 laptop. As she was typing the space bar came off. We tried to fit it back in but when depressed, it doesn't pop up again. She can use it without the space bar as there is a button she can press down on - it only works that way.

Is there a way that we can fix this ourselves or must we bring it to a Toshiba dealer ?

Thanks!

i wasn't sure where to put this question cause it could be related to almost everything since i don't know what exactly the problem is,

here's what happens, sometimes and it randomly happens cause yet i failed to find out any action related to this, when m playing a game or typing in skype.. cause those what m mostly doing, the keyboard kind of stops typing and i hear those dings, when that happened if i press the spacebar my wifi connection disconnects, and all i have to do is to reconnect to it and continue what i am doing, if i don press the space bar after hearing those dings it won't disconnect me till i press it. so basicly when this happens i can't use the spacebar for a good long time if i don wanna lose the connection.

any idea what would that be related to? and how to fix it?

Answer:Spacebar Disconnect Wifi??

Quote:




i hear those dings




Is this a Laptop or a desktop? What is the make and model?
What Dings are you talking about? Is it the sound when you plug in a USB device or Disconnect it?
If you are using a USB keyboard on a desktop computer, plug the keyboard into the Back USB port and not the front or through a hub as these ports are weaker.

Brand new W510 THinkPad, and the spacebar isn't working (works with an external keyboard, so its not a software problem). Is there a way for me to fix it myself, or should I send it to support? This is very annoying with a new laptop  Thanks!

Answer:New W510 spacebar not working

Does it move and sound as normal? There is very slim chance that they installed it wrong and you can readjust it by removing it and putting it back in place. Although I have always found installing space bar quite difficult. If the space bar does not exihibit any unusual sound or motion when pressing or you just don't want to mess with it then I would say it's factory defect and there is no other way but to send it in.

We have a 625 which seems to have a odd problem.
You can type a message as long as you do not use the spacebar. If you press the spacebar you can not type anything else.
If you avoid the spacebar you can type whatever you like, although messages that read "thisisjustatestasmyspacebardoesn'twork" become difficult to read.
As it is a key and it's the same in portrait or landscape I think it's a bug rather than a hardware issue.
Any help would be massively appreciated.

Works Suite 6.0 Spreadsheet
If I want to enter an address in a cell, I would enter 123 Main St.
However when I enter 123 and press the spacebar, apparently nothing happens to indicate a space. If I then enter the word Main, the space will then show in that cell. Why does the space not appear at first.
Thank you
Herbh
 

Answer:Spacebar Works Suite 6.0

Because 123 is a numeric value and you are using a spreadsheet, designed to perform calculations.

As soon as you enter a non numeric value (M), the spreadsheet determines that you are not wanting a number al all, and reverts to text formatting for the cell?

You may need to get a new keyboard. It's possible that it is just a bad connection, and you can check that, but chances are that you'll just need a new one. I just replaced the one on my Satellite because it was silver and I wanted black. It was not too difficult.

If you want to be sure it is a hardware problem and not software, boot up a different operating system and see if they work.

I've had my 9550 (i7 Touch) for about 3 weeks now and the spacebar has been one of several nagging issues. 
Unless I reliably hit it dead center I get sporadic recognition of key spaces, or alternatively double-spaces.
I haven't had any luck with Dell phone support.  Is this a design issue or do I have a legitimate problem on my hands? 
Most of the day is spent in MS Word and Excel and the lack of a properly functioning spacebar is a severe nuisance.  I've noticed the issue is worse as I hit the key closer to the sides or on the lower half (closer to the palm rest).  I have never had issues with other laptops, dell or otherwise.
Do I need to call and pester phone support?  Any other avenues I can pursue?

Answer:XPS 15 9550 Spacebar non-responsiveness

I too have a 9550 XPS 15 (non-touch) and have had issues with the spacebar.  It's just not bouncy. As previously stated, I often miss spaces and sometimes get double spaces.

Often when typing, the spacebar doesn't register that I've just tapped it and I end upwithsentenceslookinglikethis. I've cleaned all around the spacebar including using a vaccuum cleaner along the sides just in case anything is stuck down there. It often feels as if it only registers a space if I hit it at a specific area in the middle of the bar although it does seem to work occasionally if I tap either hard with a bit more force. Is there anything realistic I can do to deal with this so I get a space no matter where I tap on it?

Hi,

This is the 3rd spacebar I have ordered. I realize there is that metal thing and where it goes in the spacebar. I checked as before to see that the metal thing was secure in the plastic holders. It was (as I thought before), and I proceeded carefully to put the spacebar back in (with the metal thing towards the back forming an upside down U).

When I did, once again, the metal piece dislodged itself from inside the keyboard and I put it back, however, it's not firmy in the grooves as it was. It works, but feels different than all my other keys and sometimes, and it is not working smoothly.

So now I have 3 spacebars with the metal bar. Previously, I taped it so it would not move and it worked, just not perfectly. Am I putting the spacebar back correctly? The metal thing isn't by any chance toward the front, is it?

I'm not ordering another one.

What can I do ?

Many thanks,

Answer:Session Password set as a 1 spacebar

Hi D3fman. Welcome to the TenForums @D3fman

First I would just try hitting enter, no spaces.

Next I assume this is a local account and there is no other admin account. (When you get this solved I would create another admin account so you "Have a second set of keys".)

Before proceeding are you using any disc encryption / bitlocker? These processes very well will cause loss of data.

You could use option 4 in this tutorial to enable the built in Administrator account. From there you could reset your password to your local admin account.

Enable or Disable Elevated Administrator account in Windows 10

I also came across this process. I've seen similar threads on the Internet but I have not followed this process myself ​so it may be better to use tutorial. It looks straight forward enough. If used you need to reset the utilman.exe that it has you overwrite.

https://www.howtogeek.com/222262/how...in-windows-10/

The process assumes that when you boot from media your Windows drive letter, on your HDD or SSD, becomes d:.

You can confirm this before you start the process by entering the command diskpart, when diskpart starts enter list volume, confirm your windows drive letter, then enter exit.
