Space Bar Not Working

This question is not answered

My space bar is not working properly. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it will not put a space in. It just recently started, and I am not sure what to do. Can anyone please help?

Thank you

  • Hi,

    Welcome to the Community. Please mention your system model, when posting on the forum. Check if the same thing happens in safe mode. Press the F8 key on startup at the Dell Logo, select safe mode, and log in, check if the spacebar acts the same way. If it does, you may want to reseat your keyboard.

    Thank you

  • My system model is Inspirion N5010.  How would I reset my keyboard?

  • If it's just one key that doesn't work properly, replace the keyboard.

  • Hi,

    Below is the link to reseat the keyboard.

    If this does not work, and you have an active warranty. Send me a private message, by clicking on my user name, add me as a friend, and send me your service tag, phone number and address.

    Thank you
