But I think this is a good question for Dell support- is it still undr warranty? This shouldn't happen.
My daughter's Dell laptop runs hot so we bought one of those USB plug in fan decks for underneath but your problem sounds way beyond that.
Sounds like you have a lemmon on your hands.
Like I said, I'm just a guy on the street but I think even Dell would be upset if they knew their machine is melting charging equipment.
I hope you don't 1) leave it on unattended on your bed or 2) leave it on for long periods of time.
Soulds like a fire waiting to happen.

1) Get a can of compressed air and use it to blow the dust out of the slits that ventilate the laptop.
2) Please go to the Malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the Instructions to do before posting in the malware fourm.
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
