If the bulge in the keyboard area is due to a bloated battery,

then the solution is to replace the battery.


Bloated battery needs to be replaced.


"Fat" Battery / Bloated Battery / Swollen Battery


  • If the battery is in a swollen or bloated condition, the battery must be removed from the computer and replaced.
  • There are no other remedies, tests, or useful options.

Two choices - actually three:


  • Purchase and change out the battery yourself for the expense of having to purchase said battery.
  • If the computer is in Warranty, contact HP Support, submit a case, prepare to send the computer to HP for repair.


Third, unofficial option

  • Wait for an agent to find your message, evaluate the content, and respond.


Lots of people do opt for the third option - "bloated" battery is a sensitive subject for some.

The fastest option is to purchase and replace the battery.


We can provide the information to help you replace the battery.

There is also video available.

Essentially, the information you need is located in the Service Guide for your computer.




Warranty Check – Contact HP


If the battery is failing (or has failed) and the computer is within the Warranty Period, contact HP Technical Support.
