Dell E1505 speakers melted, New speakers smell burnt too.
My son had tried cleaning my laptop with soaked kitchen towel when turned on. Everything went out. When i tried turnign it on it did not. Water poired out. I disassembled the whole laptop and saw oxidation on the motherboard circuits. I cleaned it with a needle and tooth brush. But my speakers had totally melted. So I removed them. Even the top molding had started to melt, left some marks from the heat of the speakers. After the cleaning the laptop started. TG.
I got new speakers. But they too started smelling burnt and started heating up the top mold. Any particular reason why that might be happening. Any way to check or reset speaker system.

Re: Dell E1505 speakers melted, New speakers smell burnt...
The speakers are heating up because there is a short in the audio circuitry on the mother board, and I would consider you extremely lucky if that is all that is over drawing current and heating up. You may get lucky and be able to connect external speakers to get sound without melting your laptop.

Check your system if you are able to hear sound using any headphone..if you are able to hear sound from headphone then the problem is with your dell speakers,else you need to update sound drivers for your system...Thanks..
Usually, the crackling indicates a connection that's not making a good connection. you can try twisting the plug where it connects to your computer and see if you can get it to make a better connect. Also, you may try cleaning the plug itself. When cleaning contacts with any sort of household alcohol, be aware that it can leave a residue so you'll need to use a clean/dry tissue to dry the plug and remove any residue. -hope that helps.
It should be having onboard sound card, check from Bio's setup whether the Audio is ON. also check in control panel sound and media devices and check the volume maybe it's very very low or on mute. Also try with other speakers
Sort of confused a bit I understand you buying a new system you say the sound does not come out the rear and centre speakers does the sound come out of any spearkers other than the two you mention if it is then your wirings are wrong if the sound is not coming out of any speakers then its the sound card BUT you will know this immediately you disconnect that system. The sound would be coming out of the laptop ordinaryly? which is it?
