We love our pets, unfortunately they love the cables that make our electronics work. You should periodically check to make sure all cables (especially power cables) are in good condition. Check for any break in the outer protective casing and replace immediately if bare wire is exposed. A cable in disrepair can be an electric shock and fire hazard. Even if you don’t have any pets you should still check your cables. If they are not tucked away it is very easy to run over them with your computer chair, or to step on them throughout the day. Check that you don’t put too much pull on the cord itself. This can lead to the wires inside shorting out, the wires and insulation pulling away from the plug, and even damage to the port the cord plugs into.
If you find you have a faulty cable come on down to SoftQue Computer, we offer a wide selection of cables at a discounted price.
