    HP has recalled about 6million Laptop Power Cords which may overheat and pose a potential fire and burn hazard.

    The affected cords have an "LS-15" molded mark on the AC adapter end of the power cord.

    Customers should immediately stop using and unplug the recalled power cords and contact Hewlett-Packard to order a free replacement. Consumers can continue to use the computer on battery power.

    (until it runs outta juice .. then they are done until the replacement cord arrives)
