Dell Latitude D830 instant off whenever loud sound played

Ok i work on computers for a living but this one has my mind blown. I have a Dell Latitude D830 and whenever I have me headset unplugged and the sound coming from the speakers if theres a loud sound played, or if im on skype and someone coughs or creates a spike in the sound the laptop instantly shuts down. My thought is that a speaker is vibrating and shorting on something to cause the instant off but I figured i'd get a second or third or fourth opinion before I tear into it to find the evil monster inside.

    Sorry should have mentioned that i usually dont ever have the battery in it and is always plugged in, as the battery lasted me a whole 8 months and died lol. Though i suppose the same could be happening with the power supply, a sudden over draw that it can't make up for. Thanks for the idea Azraelsrl, I hadn't thought of that.

Either that or the battery is near the end of its life and when a big spike in current is needed it fails so the voltage drops and the processor chokes, instantly shutting it down.

    Had exactly the same thing with a D830. I first thought it was a video problem as it happened during video playback. Updated video driver - still stuffed.
    I thought I'd try playing an audio only track - same thing, instant power off.

    Re-installed the sigmaTel audio driver and it's now working fine. (a few hours now anyway).

    I have never seen a shutdown like this due to a driver problem but there you go.
