Heat dissipation from the unit in the same area of the speaker assembly, especially since you stated that the RIGHT speaker was smoked. Similar problems occur with this design flaw with any manufacturer as HP has the same problem with some of their models.
Your heat exhaust is killing the speaker, and I would also bet that your chipset is AMD and not Intel, the latter having solved it's heat dissipationn problems.
A more aggressive heat dissipation solution on the motherboard or redirection of the exhaust past fewer heat sensitive components would be a design goal.

There is a book, a friend of mine bought a copy and basically is a Vista 64 problem. It will not allow you to use unsigned drivers without typing in a line of code. It has so much useful data and allows you to tweak Vista just the way you want it and unlock features Microsoft doesn;t even tell you about. The info on the book is below. I'll try to get my hands on a copy and post your solution. Do check the book out, it's probably available through your local library. Here's that info:

Have you tried a Live CD?
Since you have a newer model, you can try the latest Ubuntu release located here.
Download the .iso file.
Burn the .iso file to a CD or DVD.
For burning .iso files to media, I like ImgBurn for Windows ( http://www.softpedia.com/dyn-postdownload.php?p=27810&t=4&i=1 ) and plain K3B for Linux.
Once the disk is burned, pop it in and make your machine boot from the Optical Drive (CD/DVD Drive).
Hit enter a few times once you are asked about the preferred language and to try Ubuntu without changes to your computer.
From there it should either boot up okay (maybe without sound because sound is iffy in Linux) or it will continue to be all kinds of badness.
The thing is at this point you should be able to tell if it is most likely hardware or software. If Linux boots up off of your disk, your Windows installation is hosed (not so bad, possibly cheap to fix). If you can't even boot into a Linux live environment, then the fix may involve money and a fair amount of screwdriver action.
