wrap sand paper around something and sand out the groove so its deeper. be extremely careful though.

Use a very small file and file it down just a bit, but be very careful as funk said

Wouldn't that lower the height of the string, creating fret buzz?

action can be adjusted fairly easily to stop this.

If this has to be a really super quick fix and you don't have time to go get a new nut, my friend's dad did this to a crappy first act bass we found in his basement:

Take off busted nut.

Take a Knex or Lego piece

File away grooves for strings

Place where nut goes

play away.

We used a Knex piece and it worked suprisingly well. no strings popping off, no fret buzz or anything that i can remeber. it was okay, you know, for a first act. I wouldn't advise doing this unless you absolutely have to though.
Slap a bass, not a ho.

this happened to me the other day, and the quick fix was to make sure the string is wrapped around the bottom of the tuning peg, and not the top. worked for me.

Mabye you're playing style is cause the strings to constantly ring, I've never had that problem on any bass I've played, and if it's on both basses, it's quite possible it's your playing style causing the problem.
