I have connected my laptop to my element tv via vga cord;sound is comin frm laptop..want the sound frm TV; THEN, I have a headset/microphone ... can I connect my headset/microphone to the TV?


If you need to get sound from your TV, you should have a sound input socket in your TV. If you have that you can connect an audio cable from your sound sound socket to your TV.
The second option is that your laptop and your TV should have HDMI ports. If its there, you can use an HDMI cable(instead of VGA cable)to connect the two. With HDMI cable, you will get both video and audio through that single cable.

If you need more help please let me know

Guys, Recently i got LG 22" LCD TV. It has VGA port and HDMI port. When i connected my CPU cable toLCD via VGA port it didn't show anything, :"( i checked input MENU on remote then it shows only 4...


HDMI [High Definition Multimedia Interface]. VGA [Video Graphics Array]. AV [Audio Video]. By these definitions itself talk to you about the inputs your TV have; and it do not support VGA. Output from PC is VGA. Without a VGA input with the TV, you can't connect the PC to TV. I think I'm clear. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

I have amazon prime on my desktop can ihook it to my tv


You should be able to discount your monitor cable from the back of the monitor and then connect it to the TV via the VGA port, you r other option if the graphics card supports it would be to connect via a HDMI cable and run the TV as a 2nd screen.

Connecting dell mini inspiron with LCD with HDMI cable on both si


You just need a HDMI cable to go from the laptop to the TV. It is refered to as a patch cable. You then go into the TV menu and set it to component or in some cases it will say computer. The VGA on the TV just allows both style interfaces to be connected.

Can I connect my dell latitude d360 laptop to my tv?


you need to have the same connections on both my laptop has svideo or vga connector, some have Hdmi which is the newest, but the tv and laptop have to bot have the same connectors, it may be a dvi, or any that I mentioned, then you need a cable for your video, and another for your audio, both the audio and video cables are run to the tv, the only one that has both audio and video is the HDMI which tv's from the last hear or 2 usually do have. Then depending which input the laptop is using which it will tell you where the connection for the tv is, you set it to that input and that turns your tv into a giant monitor

PS3 setup to Denon AVR 2807 & Samsung LCD


Azahid

Since you are running the to LCD monitor instead of a LCD TV this is where you run into the issue. because the monitor is not setup to pull out the audio from the HDMI connection. So there is a few ways that you maybe able to to this.

The first one is look around at the different output cables out there the PS3. (I just got one so I do not know the accessories that are out for the PS3) This is becoming a common setup so if Sony does not have cable that will split off the audio then a 3rd party group may. I know they have one like that for the XBOX 360.

Another you can try is if your monitor will except an analog connection you may need to go that way. That is how I have my XBOX 360 that is my room connected. I have a RBG HD to VGA connect the VGA input on the monitor and the audio going to my sound card.

The reason why I suggested going analog is that right with our curent technology that if you are run with the 2 formats at the same time you will get audio/video sync issues. So you need to go all analog or all digital.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions on this and/or need me to clarify anything.
