    Spacebar not working?


    Hi everyone,

    I have an msi windpad 110w, and I have the windows 8 consumer preview installed. When I first installed it, everything worked great, but recently, the spacebar has stopped functioning properly on my virtual keyboard. That is, the entire keyboard works fine, but when it comes time to press space, it often takes between 2 and 4 taps in order for the space to actually register... it is extremely frustrating.

    Does anyone have any idea as to why this might be happening?

    Have you checked for any updates (MS) and it could be a driver issue?
