What happened to my sound card?

    My computer speakers died suddenly with a blown fuse. I assumed it was
    the speaker power supply so I replaced the speakers with a pair of
    cheap ones that also died (no sound and the power light was off). I
    could only blame the sound card so I replaced it and the fuse and all
    is well. What could go wrong with a sound card that would cause this?

    Thanks Don but I am inclined to think that whatever was wrong with my
    sound card killed both sets of speakers. I just don't see what fault
    could cause that.

    Interestingly, I have just come to the same conclusion that you have
    about power protection and UPSs. I'm not sure if my troubles started
    just before or just after I installed my new Powerware 5110. At around
    $100.00 its about the same price as a quality surge suppressor.
