Hello guys

I have one question, just recently (like 2 weeks ago) my macbook air started "reforming itself". Sounds funny, but now there is a big bubble with the peak right left to my touchpad (and on the bottom side of the macbook air on the same spot as well). There was absolutely no influence from outside (heat, fluids, hits). So the problem needs to stem from within the macbook air..

This means: I cannot close the air anymore, because there is a 4mm gap on the left and on the right side when it is closed. Furthermore, it cannot stand on a straight desk, because there is a bubble on the bottom side (as explained).

So, I am interested, did anybody have the same problems as I do???
My question sounds strange, but I wouldn't know anything else to do.

Thanks,
Tobias

Could it be the battery? If it is, I suggest you take it in for repair ASAP before the battery burns or explodes.. You do NOt want a chemical fire on your hands, lap, desk, house, etc.

I thought about the battery as well.. have you already heard about such things going on? I was just overwhelmed this morning when I saw it. ****, this may be really serious.
Thanks, if anybody else knows another reason, would be great!

plenty of threads and posts about bulging laptop batteries all over the Internet... It happens. It's unfortunate. It's good that they bulge before burning so you got a chance to get it fixed before you get hurt.

I hope you went already before it's too late!
