You should be able to get speakers that plug straight into the ear phone socket

the speakers do connect into the earphone socket but the music is still distorted. I have ran test on soundcard and thats all fine. Someone said to me i need to bypass it by using the bios. But how do i access the bios?

You perhaps could borrow a pair of headphones to plug in, and check if it is still distorted.

If so, then whatever you do it will remain so, as there must be a fault on the card.

if OK, then you should be able to connect an amplified pair of speakers with no problem.

All the best.

Get some USB speakers, it will disable the onboard ones when you connect them. click here
