Having problems with your Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System (3-Piece) ?

I can mute and unmute but can't adjust the volume with the wheel.

\015 I've had these speakers since Dec. or Jan. and they've worked great, until today when the speakers started to make loud, high-pitched sounds. I unplugged the control pod, power cord, and USB cords and left it unplugged for a while, because the sounds totally scared me and these speakers are too expensive to get damaged, haha. I plugged everything back in and now I cannot control the volume with the control pod. I can mute and unmute, but turning the wheel does nothing. Now, the only volume control I have is the system volume which isn't as accurate or smooth as the Bose one. What can I do to enable the control pod volume adjustment again? I'm using an iMac (aluminum) with OS X Leopard (well, tomorrow I will be using Snow Leopard =]).\015
