Hey guys,
Like an idiot i left my laptop (white macbook 13" most current version) on a high shelf while charging, and tripped on the cable. Instead of detaching like it should, the laptop fell and landed on top of the power cable which pushed all of the sockets about 1-2mm into the computer. Any suggestions on how to fix this? the laptop now sometimes fails to charge as the cable cant make full contact

cheers!

Either the macsafe in board is just loose or it's trashed anyway its easy to replace it if its damaged (if you have experience taking apart computers since it requires you to remove the logic board).
