If your keyboard looks like this you can get a replacement for less than $15 from Ebay

and a video on how to do it

it does look similar, but all that man handling, and from someone that supposedly knows what they're doing. i would be afraid of breaking something. all that for a space bar seems a bit much.

i do however, thank you for taking the time to post this. it was very informative, even if it didn't provide the desired result. :vulcan:

The shipping would be a killer.

i appreciate the gesture loafr. unfortunately, my mobility, and in general what i have going on, makes sending a keyboard too much of a hassle. a hassle either way, it would seem. i'll work something out.

if i didn't know any better i would say the spacebar has mood swings and decides to work or not work right, depending on the time of the day.

no problem, should see if there is a computer college teacher near you that might have someone wanting to do it for an extra credit assignment
