Can the Geek Squad install my spacebar?

I was cleaning the keys on my laptop so I took them all off. I was able to put each key back on perfectly... Except for my spacebar. The bottom half of the key won't stay down and I can't figure out why or how to fix it. I have Geek Squad protection and really want to know if they could get my spacebar return to normal. Thank you!

You could always take it to them and ask. However with laptop keyboards...if one of the plastic clips broke, it'd be almost impossible to get the spacebar back onto the keyboard properly if at all.


Depending on the model/age of the laptop you could probably find a keyboard online and have GeekSquad install it for you if need be. I don't recall the exact pricing for those services (or if they even still do that kind of thing in store) as it's been a couple of years since I was an Agent, and I no longer work for BB at all. Miss my BB family though, enjoyed working there.

Hi Slakingking1 –


Welcome to the forums and thanks for posting. Cleaning my keyboard is something I like to do pretty regularly, as it can get pretty gross under the keys given enough time. That said depending on the type of keyboard some spacebars can be pretty tricky in my experience, so I definitely understand where you’re coming from.


Thankfully @Tanthalason beat me to the punch and was able to give some great advice, which I mirror. Your best bet is to bring your laptop into your local Geek Squad where they can take a look at it in person and determine if there is damage, or if this is something they can quickly fix for you. Let us know how it goes!
