Prong on my laptop charger bent is there any way to repair it
Assuming that it is bent beyond just being able to straighten it, the best solution is just get a new charger. If you are handy with a soldering iron and you can find a replacement end that matches (electronics stores, Radio Shack) you can cut the old end off and solder a new one on. Look at the old one carefully and make sure that you connect the new one the same way. To get a good look at the old one, once you've removed it from the chord, split it open so you can see exactly which wire goes to the inside connector and which to the outside connector.
Best option is to replace it. If its under warranty call mfr

I thought the power cord had a short in it, but I took my laptop apart and looked at the jack and found that these little prongs on it were bent and not touching the other piece inside. I moved the prongs back and it seemed to work for a little while, but then it started messing up again.
