    I'm sure if your battery had caught on fire, they would have said, "It was a well known recall."

    Bumping this thread up. I too have a Dell laptop but I checked out the Dell website and put in the code and mine isn't affected.

    I thought I heard it was also some Apple computers.

    I'm beginning to wonder if I need to question if my Compaq laptops' batteries would overheat as well.
