What can u plug in the vga audio outlet in back of tv i tried my computer speakers to get better sound from internet but i got nothing have computer hooked up to tv thats why i m asking just looking for sound dont like the sound when speakers are hooked up directly to computer tower help someone
On my Digital Lifestyles TV model LT4232, there is an (1/8" mini) input next to the VGA input. I picked up a $10 cable from a local shop and haven't had problems with it. If you are using an RCA on my tv the audio will be on a separate source from the video.

What are the settings for the computer? Make sure it is set for the vga output. If it is a laptop, this is usually done with a function (FN) key. On your settings screen you can set the resolution and which monitor you are using.
When you are using the TV as a monitor (VGA) you need to connect the audio out from the computer to the VGA audio in of the TV. (Otherwise connect computer speakers to the computer (if a desktop) and use those speakers.) The audio out for a desktop is usually marked by a green 3.5 mm jack. The VGA audio in will be a 3.5 mm jack as well; so an audio patch cable (3.5 mm M/M) is needed. (The green port is normal for computer with Line-In, Line-Out and Microphone ports. If the computer has an option for surround sound, check the manual to make sure which port you should use for Line-Out.)
If your cable box has an internet connection (like some DVRs, blu-ray players and TVs), the HDMI cable will carry the audio without separating it out unless you feed the signal through a home theater system (or audio receiver) for a surround sound system.
Which model TV do you have? That will help track down where the VGA audio in port will be. Some models have the VGA audio in next to the VGA port. On other TVs, it is near other audio input and output jacks. Usually it is clearly labeled but you may need a magnifying glass to read the text. (Sometimes it will be labeled VGA/DVI audio in.)
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (I have one TV in my household where the DVI audio in uses 2 RCA jacks, even with a computer as the source (so there may be some TVs with that for the VGA source as well). For that situation, I use a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA (M/M/M) cable or an adapter - either 2 RCA (F/F) to 3.5 mm (M) at the computer with an RCA audio cable or 2 RCA (M/M) to 3.5 mm (F) at the TV with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable.)
Hi, on the back of your t.v. near the V.G.A. input should be marked another small hole for P.C. AUDIO INPUT or something to that effect, it actually is nothing more than a headphone jack that you connect to P.C.'s LINE OUT/HEADPHONE jack-it's easy to find, the sound on your computer will stop when you plug in a " MALE TO MALE 1/8 INCH STEREO " cord into it. This will give you sound on your T.V. Good luck I hope this helps, Prodzilla.
You need a seperate speaker system when your tv is on vga there is no option to recieve a sound input. In fact if you hook your cables for sound back up to the tv you will probably find that there is sound but on a diffrent input channel. The other option is to use a diffrent type of connection like hdmi if your computer and tv support it which DOES support audio and vido throught the TV.
The HDMI on your laptop is for video and not for sound meaning you only get video and no sound.
Your laptop however has a sound card built in and has a output jack after witch you can purchase a 3mm jack to RCA converter and then plug it into the TV that way. But I do not see the sense in having sound from the computer come out of the TV speakers.
It would be allot better if you had a receiver, or some amplified speakers.
You case is simple the PC will not pass audio to the TV in that form factor.
Most laptops come with a VGA output terminal.And it depends if your LG LCD TV has VGA video input(it should be similar with your laptops' terminal).So if yours is equiped with that(VGA video input)It is indicated by The word or acronym "PC"input,and use a VGA cord available from Staples,best buy or your local computer shop.Also include an Audio RCA plug(Red and White) with an stereo earphone plug on the other end or else you'll have no sound.The RCA plugs goes to the audio input in your TV the other end goes to the speaker phone jack of your Laptop.
If you mean you've connected your computer to a VGA connector on the TV so you can use the TV as a monitor, not getting sound would be normal. The VGA input on the TV is video only. Any sounds the computer produces would still come only from the speakers you have connected to the computer. There isn't any problem that needs to be corrected.
If I'm not understanding your request, please post a follow-up comment and I'll try to help you further.
you could try the scart socket for audio out ,it could be worth a try.
A scart to phono adaptor would let you connect to your amplified spaekers but would only give a fixed audio level,
ie you could not adjust the sound via the tv remote control
be careful if you connect any speakers to the tvs speakers you could damage the audio op stage on the tv ,
