Question about HP Computers & Internet

No D.C. power

I have two H.P. pavillon dv9610us laptops for my family. The cat decided to chew on the d.c. side of the power supply on one of them and now the a.c. light (lightning bolt) does not come on but the blue ring light around the power cord does when I use the good power supply. The laptop does work when a fully charged battery is put in. Is there a fusible link or a fuse that could have blown? Have not tried to take case apart other than to reseat r.a.m.

Do I need to buy a chew toy for my new cat?

That's agood question. I have seen chewing toys available at cat shops but in generalcats are more into scratching than chewing. Kittens might enjoy a chew toy butit really depends on the cat. Don't spend a lot on those kind of toys unlessyou see that your cat is really into chewing.

Dog chewed wire in power adapter

If you have a soldering iron and some experience, it is easy to solder the parts back together, just be sure to examine the cord closely for any chew marks /pierces. If you do not have a soldering iron / eperience, generic power supplies for laptops with voltage switchable voltage for different brands and different heads are about 30$, check your local store. be sure to by one with enough watts to power your system.

Remember this is a DC output...Make sure you have the right wire hooked together. What I mean is if you soldered the wires make you didn't reverse the negative and positive. Otherwise look for a new power supply.

My cat chewed the wiring on my Bose in-ear headphones

Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.

My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)

Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.
