My space doesn't work

  1. Hi,

    I'm using a Acer Aspire 3500 and the laptops' (keyboard) space do not work. I think I should clean under the keys but I have no clue how to open the "shell" so I can clean it up. Tips?

    I'm really tired of copying and pasting spaces.

    Ouch, copying and pasting spaces. That has got to be painful.

    You can look on the bottom for screws which should have a picture of keyboard by them. You can remove these, then turn the laptop over and open the lid to easily remove the keyboard. Just be careful as there are wires attached to it. As always DON'T FORCE IT!

    BTW

    Dunno if you have a numpad but if you do Hold Alt then press 3 then 2 on your numpad.
    This is an alternative method of creating a space :)

    Or use the onscreen keyboard.

    I know this does not answer your question, but its a workaround until someone does :)

    I wrote this message using it!

    You know the girls use to fix their eyebrows. So called a tweezer. [​IMG]

    Feels good not copy and pasting spaces! :)
