Before I commit suicide - help me! dead soundcard?

By integro

  1. I can't believe it...My laptop: HP 530 built with azalia codec, intel high def.
    I just plugged in my mono speaker built-with-amplifier in the headphone input. (the drivers for sound were installed and there were just 2 inputs: headphone and mic) After I plugged the amplifier's cable out, there was a buzzy-unsmooth and distorted sound in one of the speakers of my laptop.(when I tried to listen a song, the sound was mono, buzzy, with distortion and I couldn't understand anything) And there appears to be no sign of life for the headphones input..
    To conclude is there anything to do? Did I really f**** it up?

    No,don`t commit suicide...........yet !

    So your laptop sound was workin fine,then you plugged an amplifier into

    the headphone jack,and now all you get is a buzzy distorted sound from

    the onboard speaker,and nothin from the headphone socket ?

    It sounds like you killed it..........commit suicide !
