Default Melting problem with my laptop

A few months ago i dopped my laptop on its side and the charger got pushed up into its socket. it seemed to work fine for ages except i'd have to move the charger around to actually get it to charge. Recently i started noticing the charger getting very hot and only a couple of days ago it melted right through the back of the laptop and the charger head itself is completely destroyed.
Does anyone know of a way to fix this and roughly how much it will cost?

Get a new charger. There are several opportunities out there, take a look on Google.
