I'm trying to fix...the...spacebar...on...my...daughter's...computer......as...you...can..gather...it's..not...working....I've...tried...popping...off...the...spacebar...and...cleaning...it...but.no...luck...I've...also...tried...reinstalling...the...driver...again...no...luck

She..has..a..Toshiba...satellite...running...Vista.

If...it...can't...be...fixed...can...I...rename...a...key...to...work...like...a...spacebar?

This...is...annoying...to...say...the...least.

Thanks!


Edit: I am able to access the on-screen keyboard and the spacebar is working.

If Jimmy cracks corn and nobody cares, why did they write a song about him?

Notebook keyboards are a pain to try and fix. You might want to google for one, or try ebay.

Good luck.

Usually there are a series of clips on the sides of the spacebar that you will have to fasten in and lock down. Unfortunately, there is no standard, or easy, way to do this except through trial and error. You may have to just replace the keyboard, which is also a pain on laptops.

I sent it back to Toshiba and they replaced it under warrantee.

Great! :thumbsup:

It is always better to get the original part. Especially under warranty. Free feels good! :huh:
