Angry Droid one troubleshooting...Inopperable

My droid one almost never responds to touch. it barely functions. it presses random keys and commands on its own, including calling ppl during class. i cant unlock it at times. it will shut itself down.it "shakes" violently(not vibration but the screen itself). i have reset it three times and brought my apps back with appsaver. please help. never dropped or gotten it wet. my guess is a virus. can anyone help? thanks

It's not a virus. It's bad touchscreen. If wiping/resetting didn't help then it's a hardware issue. You don't have to drop or get your device wet for it to develop problems.

Whoa, there, folks, there is one piece of information we're not getting here.

ridersway, When you reset it to factory defaults, does it still go crazy, or only after you restore your apps using appsaver?

It may very well be an app that has some sinister aspects to it...

But, the above causes are also possibilities....
