Ask Newt Gingrich.

In any case, there are all kinds of things that can fail inside a powered speaker. Open it up, disconnect the driver from the amplifier, then use an AA or AAA battery to see if the driver is still alive. If it's not, you've found the first problem. If it is, it's time to replace that chip amp inside the speaker.

Default hmm

most every computer speaker set's cabling is less than stellar, you might want to check the cable for breaks in the wire - or "looseness" where the cable enters the speaker.
