    Laptop keyboards are pretty cheap and are easy to replace.

    What is the make and full model number of the laptop?

    There should be a model number, if it is not on the back of the laptop, it will be in the battery Compartment. Gotta know which model.

    I've bought laptop KBs for as little as 8 bucks from ebay or amazon, but you will have to get it installed by someone who knows how to do it, maybe a friends knows how.

    Also, see if you can download Hiren's Boot CD from mu link below, boot into "Mini-XP" - See if the spacebar works while booted to Mini XP. If it works there, then it's an OS problem.

    It will be something like: HP Pavilion g6-1096sa

    For example, I did a Google search for keyboard for HP Pavilion g6-1096sa

    First hit shows a keyboard for $20.98 here

    You're welcome. Just make sure you get one for the correct HP model. The one I posted a link to may not be the one you have.
