XPS 9550 speaker distortion

I bought an XPS 9550 a couple of months ago, and I was watching a movie on it the other night.  Suddenly I started getting a massive amount of distortion from the speakers.  And now anything I play on the builtin speakers distorts terribly.  I strongly suspect it is a hardware issue.

I went to Dells support website, however it incorrectly states that my laptop is out of waranty, which it shouldn't be for another 6 months at least.  It suggested ringing a premium rate phone number, but I am currently working internationally, so that would cost a fortune. 

Please advise what I should do next.

RE: XPS 9550 speaker distortion

The same issue. My speakers died, all i hear is rattle no sound. And dell support is awfull. First they said to wait untill i get some dispatch code. Now after two weeks i get a message like i am late and i should have printed and sent some shipping label,   I do not know how to send it to repair.
