    Im having a major issue with my Droid! It is pulling up apps, dialing numbers, typing texts, trying to reset my settings, and when it starts doing all of this the only way I can stop it is by pulling the battery out. Then it takes FOREVER for it to turn back on. I have tried debugging it with my computer and nothing seems to be working! HELP!

    This sometimes happens with off-brand chargers plugged in, are you using anything other than what came with the phone?

    you could try a factory reset first. I can't think of anything else that might help. Most likely a hardware issue.

    If you wanna try a factory reset, it is in menu>settings>privacy. If you cant access it due to the screen not cooperating you'll have to do it from the recovery menu: power off>power back on while holding X on the physical keyboard until the android screen>press volume up and camera button at the same time>use D-Pad on keyboard to select factory reset from the menu.

    something else might be worth trying, boot into safe mode and see if it still does it
