:lolflag: sorry this made me laugh

what apps are the issue? when does it occur, what language is the keyboard set to? how old is it? USB or PS/2?

How did you make the post above with out the use of a space key? So we can gauge what is and is not working.

It would appear that since the op has not answered any requests for more information the op must be a troll. Can a mod please close this thread?

Or they have limited internet connection. Or they have to reboot back into working OS. 1 hour of no reply does not worrent a troll.

Never knew that about the "sun icon". Thanks.

Still don't think it is "nice" to close a thread after an hour. Some people do not enable subscription and take a time getting around especially new people to the forums.

May be a silly question but have you rebooted at any point? I had a screwy issue last week where my F-keys stopped working, and a reboot took care of that.

There are many criteria which may class someone as a troll, but not posting a follow-up in less than a day ? Gimme a break.

He may well be trying to find his way around the forum, having "lost" his original post.

I am awfully sorry.
I have a laptop and my space bar does not work on open office and firefox.
