For awhile now, my AC adapter has been sort of loose in the jack in the computer, forcing me to contort the wire in any number of ways to get it to plug in and start charging my laptop or running on AC when the battery is charged. Today, it has become almost impossible for any of my contortions to work and I may have bent the wiring a bit too much, even with copper's resilience. I checked the HP website for help and parts and the AC adapter may be out of production. What do I do?

I'm also worried about short circuits, sparks, and the fact that it's almost impossible to charge the battery now.
