Clunky spacebar on Dell RT7D50 after R+R/ cleaning
\015 Took off spacebar on Dell Desktop keyboard (RT7D50) to clean underneath. Made note of orientation of the little "swaybar" underneath. Cleaned, reassembled. Spacebar is now loose and clunky, "swaybar" is loose and does not transfer force from side to side as is should. Seems the answer should be simple but after 2 hours fooling with it, I cannot resolve the clunk. Any suggestions appreciated.\015
Is it the plastic or metal bar?
You have it in backwards.

I have a dell dimension E510. When the computer boots up it runs fine for about 5 minutes, then the fan begins to speed up. It will speed up a little, then drop off a little surge more and then the end result is that the fan is turning fast so that all you hear is the fan. Is this a fan problem or something else?
This Dell unit is (like most of their models) difficult to clean the fan and heat sink - you MUST go to the Dell web site and download the Dell Dimension 5150 Service Manual to do the job properly. Contrary to most machines, Dell really knows how to ... Dell (6F858) Cooling Fan
