I have exposed cables within my battery charger adapter. What should I do and how do I do it?

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!
As far as I know, we're not Licensed Electricians here, so you're only going to get my personal response ...
But, if it were MY adapter, it would depend on which "side" of the adapter the cables were frayed -- the AC side, or the DC side.
The AC side connects to the wall; the DC side connects to the laptop.
If the DC side, I would wrap the exposed area in electrical tape. That's only carrying low voltage DC current, so it's not dangerous.
If it's the AC side, I would replace the power adapter. That side is carrying high-voltage AC current, and that is FATAL if touched, and can also cause Fires!
Your adapter -- your choice.
