I got this amazing netbook a week ago, and nowadays it’s always with me wherever I go 🙂 However, the one I got have a tiny little problem with the space key being a bit loose, which means that every time it is used, you hear a click sound that is loud enough to be a bit disturbing at the library or during lectures.
I guess this could be solved by returning it to the store, but I bought it from the net and the problem is so small that I would prefer to fix it myself. This is my first laptop/netbook, though, and I don’t have any experience with the mechanism behind the keyboard keys. Anyone know how easy they are to remove? Do the NC10 keys work the same way as the other laptop keyboards that you can find key removal guides for? I have tried a bit to bend up the top part of the key, but it just doesn’t want to snap off and I’m afraid to break anything.
Happy with any help I can get.
Same here. The keyboard is great – nice and quiet, but for a wobbly space key that annoys the hell out of me. Any advice would be appreciated.
Same problem here. I don’t see how you can do much about it. you could possibly back fill the key to dampen the sound!?!
Yeah, I’m not really sure either, but my theory is that the little metal bar placed under the spacebar isn’t tightened enough, and maybe could be bent out a bit or have something placed around it. This is assuming there actually is one on the NC10 model. The only thing I know so far comes from the keyboard repair guide found on [link]http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/03/20/key-fell-off-keyboard/comment-page-1/[/url], including a picture of the space bar specifically.
Gonna try and snap it off in a day or two and see how it goes. Kinda using the cute little thing for some studying right now, though, so I don’t have time to check it out just yet.
I have noticed the same slightly loose spacebar on the new Sammy i bought for my wife. I guess she may have to live with it unless there is a simple way of fixing it:)
Mine does not have any noticable wobble.
