HI All,

I recently got a MSI GS63 gaming laptop, and i realise that the extreme left and right of the spacebar key cannot register the key stroke, unless I hit the key very hard.

I was wondering what can I do to fix this? Seems to be the steelseries keyboard that is not properly designed. If I hit the spacebar key in the center area... there is not problem.

Advice anyone?

Regards,
Michael

I found this link to the same issue I have...

It seems this is a very common issue. I went ahead with the fit found on page link

https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=267543.msg1530175#msg1530175

I popped the spacebar key and pasted a piece of paper with transparent tape. The paper is cut to the dimensions shown in the picture, and i folded the paper once to give it some thickness. *Make sure the tape dont block any of the small clips that will clip to the metal arms.*

Make sure you dont force it too hard, the parts dont feel very solid.

But after i pop back the key, you should hear the clicks that the metal arms is clipped back to the key itself.

I have to say... After the "operation",

NOW my spacebar key WORKS prefectly through out the length of the key...

Hi boonkiatkoo78,
 

Could you help point the no response area of spacebar with a picture or a short video?

Hi Sportkung,

I cannot upload any video since everything is working PREFECTLY now.... but I have attached a picture with where the position of the spacebar key is not registering or I need to hit very hit and far down.



I am glad that it is working now... This is a good laptop... I didnt want to return it just because of the spacebar key issue. MSI should have 2 - 3 key button inputs rather than just 1 in the center.

Is there a video on how, specifically, to do this?  I'm going out of my mind and I don't want to break the keyboard popping the key up.
