Here's a Contact 13 Consumer Alert for anyone with an HP or Compaq laptop.

Hewlett-Packard is recalling nearly 6 million laptop power cords because of possible overheating.

The hot cords can cause burns, or even start a fire. HP has already received 29 reports of power cords overheating and melting or charring.

The company will replace the adaptor for free.
