Having problems with your Dell ADA745 Computer Speakers ?

Dell E1505 speakers melted, New speakers smell burnt too.

\015 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. \015\012I 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.\015

Answers :

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.
