When using the space bar on my Inspiron 1750 laptop, it causes letters to appear within the text other than where they should go which is directly to the right. Sometimes the letters will appear in the middle of a word far to the left or several lines up in the middle of a word previously typed.
I just replaced the keyboard and that didn't help. Is this a hardware problem?

I believe it's not you spacebar but your trackpad. When your typing your palms accidentally touches it and thus leading to the words jumping all over the place. Open up your trackpad options and find tap to click or something similar and disable it.
See if that works.
If the you can't find any trackpad options, then go to dell website, find your model, download the trackpad software, install, and then disable tap to click.
