HP Envy x360 Bulge Under Keyboard

HP Recommended
HP Envy x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Noticed a bulge under the touchpad/keyboard area in the general center/left area. I'm thinking it's a battery issue. The diagnostics tool under HP Support Assistance didn't discovery any issue. Not sure how to solve this.

  • Swollen battery might be hiding OR there might be evidence that the battery has inflated.  For example, notebook case is warped, touchpad stops working, “odd” bulging near the keyboard.

 

  • 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.
