Solved!

laptop case is warped

HP Recommended
Example: spectre 360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Does anyone else have these problems?

Bottom case is coming off and is severely warped.

Spacebar has failed - only will work when tapped in just the right way.

Touchpad requires way too much pressure to work.

 

If it wasn't for the touchscreen my laptop would would be a doorstop.

The underlying cause is likely one of two things:

  • A bloated / swollen battery - if this is the case, the battery must be removed to relieve pressure
  • A failing / failed hinge mechanism

 

It is likely the first of the two - fat battery
