Laptop speaker problem

I have had a problem with my Toshiba laptop speaker for a while and want to see if I can fix the problem myself before taking in to get looked at (as it does have a few weeks left on the warranty).

The problem I'm having with the sound is it sounds muffled, distorted (almost as if you were listening under water if that makes any sense) but not all of the time. It will dip in and out going from completely normal to distorted. It varies when it does it, how long for and even does it (arguably more/longer) when you plug speakers into the laptop.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me trying to resolve this? At some point something was spilt on the speakers. Whilst cooking in the kitchen some pasta sauce splashed onto them. It wasn't a lot and I was very thorough when cleaning it. So essentially it could be down to that but my doubts in that lie with the fact the problem still persist with speakers plugged in!

Don't spill things on your laptop next time Happy

Since externals fail too.

Try some USB Audio card and external speakers as repair usually runs as much as the new laptop.
