Hi I'm not a qualified professional electrician but I do repair laptops and pc's. Anyway my question is this. On a couple of cables there's a piece of tape. It looks to be woven from wire fibres and it's silver / grey in colour.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
I'd appreciate it someone could help me out.

There are various woven metal wire fabrics and materials that are used for electrical shielding, usually to prevent radiofrequency interference escaping. As above, post a pic for more specific info.
