How can I hook up an amplifier to Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop to hear DVD's better? Answered

Want to watch DVD's in our camper, but we can't hear them and need to increase the sound with speakers or something. Has anyone done this? Thanks.

You can connect line-out on your Dell (or headphone socket) to line-in / aux-in on another stereo. If you want to build one look around here?

Thank you. I bought 3 different external speakers to try out. I was mainly worried that they could be harmful (too powerful?) for my laptop, but found some that are specifically for laptops. Appreciate your input.

You mean that the inbuilt speakers are too quiet? You could either get some cheap external speakers or fit an auxiliary input to your stereo with a 3.5mm male jack on the end to fit into your laptop.
