Dell Laptop&Sound Stick Speaker Problem

  tagnet 12:27 19 Feb 2006

I have a Dell Laptop Inspiron 5150 running Windows XP Home Service Pack 2 and I am trying to use Harman Kardon Sound Stick Speakers. These were connected via the speaker/headphone jack and worked for a fews days and then stopped. I have tried all the hardware tests within Windows and checked back with Dell. I have also loaded the new driver that Dell suggested, but still no good. There is either no sound or sometimes there is just distortion. The Sounds Sticks work fine with my MP£ Player. It may be a coincidence but at the time the speakers stopped an Halogen Bulb in my ceiling light fitting also blew. It was shining onto my desk where the laptop was located. Any suggestions?
