    If using an external keyboard will allow you to enter spaces then it's possible it's the keyboard that's broken.

    I believe the problem is the little silicon piece under the spacebar, its the one that completes the contact between the key and the sensor when pressed, before buying a new keyboard, just give it a try. take out the space key with a thin knife by inserting it in one of the corners and then pulling up. if done gently, it shouldnt be a problem. once thats done, put the little silicon thing back on the sensor and try pressing it with your finger(the silicon piece), if it works then thats great, otherwise i guess you'll have to replace the keyboard sensor.

    If I'm not wrong, that link you posted for that item is a part of the top case.

    It's better if you get the whole top case. Such as this. Easier to install.

    Sorry - I guessed it was a Core 2 model - the instructions are just the same.

    For a Core Duo model you can user either the Core Duo topcase (orange wire) or the later Core 2 Duo model (Mark/Version 2 - silver wire)

    Buy a spudger - it will make life much easier....
