[SOLVED] Power Cord sparks, is it safe to plug a new cord to my PSU?

I have a power cord for my PSU but I think it got bent on the center part of the cable, and it doesn't work as of today. I tried finding the bent part then it started to spark as soon as I replugged the power cord, so I immediately unplugged it. The PSU seems to be fine, it doesn't look or smell bad, but is it safe to plug this thing again using a new cable?

Anyway this was my fault, the power cable was under a heavy box which I didn't knew until this happened.

Yes, completely safe as long as the new chord can hold the power of your pc, if it can't, it probably won't boot at all or just power off on heavy loads, in that case, change it immediately
