So you are hooking your audio out on your computers souncard/built in sound, to the stereo input to your tv?

So since you are going from a 3.5mm jack to stereo, you need the right cords. If you have a cable that came with a digital camera. Same thing.
you have to be on the right input on your tv.
Make sure the sound on the tv and computer are working.

Samsung TV has sound but no picture

Try unplugging the TV from the wall for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. This will re-boot the TV just like re-booting a computer. If this does not work, it could be your bulb. Go to to see how to change the bulb.

Picture sound

Make sure the thumbdrive is formatted for the computer in use. For example, a PC formatted drive may not work on a Mac and Mac not on a PC etc. I sometimes have this issue as I use Mac and my work colleagues use PC's.

Want to connect TV to PC and need to know how to connect

You can most likely connect your computer to your TV, but it depends on what kind of connections your computer has and what inputs your TV has. The best solution would be if your computer has an HDMI port and your TV also has one. If your computer doesn't have one but it has a DVI connecter, that is the second best solution because you can just get a DVI to HDMI adaptor. The last solution is the worst case scenario because it is analog. If your computer and TV both have VGA (the blue trapezoid plug) you can just get a VGA cable and connect the two like that. The reason that is the worst is because the quality is not that good, but in the end it will work. If you want sound, you will need a cable unless you have an HDMI port on your computer and TV. If you don't just go to the store and get a 3.5 mm headphone jack to RCA connectors and plug that into your TV.

How can i watch movies from computer to my tv

You probably need to get a composite video output card for your computer. Actually, I've seen many cards that have both a composite video output AND a DVI output port on 1 card. The DVI output will give you a noticeably sharper picture than composite video, but you need to check if your TV has a DVI or HDMI input. (If it was manufactured after 2000, it probably does.) If you TV was manufactured after 2006, it probably has 1 or more HDMI inputs instead of DVI. You can buy a DVI to HDMI converter cable. That takes care of the picture; to get sound to the TV, you will need to connect separate sound cables to your TV. Your computer needs to have a line-level output jack on it's sound card, and you will need to get an adapter cable (from Radio Shack) to convert the stereo mini-plug to 2 RCA type plugs to plug into your TV. And that should do it!

Can i hook up computer and use tv as monitor

I believe your TV only has component video and S video inputs Therefore it depends on what the video outputs are on your computer. If you have S video out on your computer's graphics card then you can plug it right in. Sound must be run separately from your audio out jack to the TV. If your computer has an analog RCV video output then that would work too.

No sound when hooking up DVi to HDMI...

This is normal, when you go from HDMI to DVI, the sound does not get transmitted. You need a separate cable to go from audio output on the computer to Audio input to the TV. There are speaker (headphone on laptop) jack to RCA audio cables, you could also go with digital audio or even optical out if your computer and TV both have the input and outputs.
