    you can try to connect all the wires back together with electrical tape (each one separately)

    If I were you, I'd rather buy a new one. I dunno how many wires there are in a charger cord but you might connect the wrong wire and that can't be good.

    ive never repaired a charger cord, but im guessing all the wires are fairly large, and have multiple colors so its obvious which ones go where?

    best way to do it is with a soldering iron and some heatshrink... but if you arent cool with that sort of thing just buy a new one...

    You can grab chargers fairly heap nowdays from amazon on ebay, even eletrical stores do a universal one now. I wouldnt fuck about with the charger too much cos it could fuck the laptop battery, im on my 3rd laptop charger in 2 years. 2nd screen and 3rd keyboard too....i need to be more careful
