Thanks for the advice Plattypuss94! Unfortunately I got it too late. I did get the 7th Streak in before I read your post. (actually this one was just the 5th to replicate the same problem) I got it in, turned it on, got it on my wifi and google, then TURNED IT OFF and did not plug it in to charge, because I had computers to repair and wanted to do exactly what you suggested, hold the darn thing until it worked or broke. After I turned it off, I laid it on my computer desk right in front of me next to the keyboard and procceded to work on the computer I was removing viruses from and glanced over about 20 mintues later, and, yep, you guessed it. It had swelled up and popped the bottom of the case open. I knew before I turned it on that the LCD would be shattered. I, and Dell, are at a loss as to why this is happening. They are sending me my 8th one and I expect it tomorrow. I live at 3600 ft in the plains of southeastern colorado, the tempature in the house was about 77. I laid the latest one on a wooden desk next to my printer and keyboard. no magnets that I can think of anywhere close to it. I'll PM you before I turn the new one on! :-)
