If you own a Dell, Hewlett-Packard or Toshiba laptop made between 2004 and 2006, your laptop’s battery may be involved in a massive recall announced this week.

More than 100,000 laptop batteries made by Sony Corp. have been recalled by the computer makers following at least 40 incidents of battery overheating, including reports of smoke and flames coming from affected portables.

The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) echoes recommendations by computer makers to remove the battery from any potentially affected laptop immediately and contact the manufacturer to request a replacement, under the recall program.

The CPSC has posted a full list of the makes and model numbers of laptops affected under the recall.
