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.

Hi, I connect my samsung tv to my pc with vga wire, I can't get the volume to work. can you help me please?

If I understand you correctly, the sound from the computer is not passed through the VGA cable.

You will have to connect the line out from your computer to a sound input on the TV. Sound is supported via RCA jacks or on some TV's the Scart plug.

Viewsonic n3246w manual

I have had this problem before and all you have to do is click on the sound button on the task bar (bottom Left) and click 'mixer', make sure that the sound is coming to the TV and if it is still not working try moving the HDMI cable in a circle while it is still connected to the TV and the laptop/computer. Hopefully it should then make sound but if the problem still persists try restarting the laptop/computer and/or TV. The cable might be broken so if the steps above to not work try getting a new HDMI cable and make sure it is plugged in properly into the TV and the laptop/computer. Hope this helps.

How to ii get sound to work from comp to tv i used a vga cable connected it to tv and video card but cant get sound

Without knowing what computer you have and which TV for that matter and which inputs and outputs are on each of them, I can only give you very rudimentary instructions.

before you do anything make sure the sound on your computer is working with some kind of speaker connected directly to your computer.

For the next step your TV will need an input audio jack, either "auxilery Input" or "Microphone" should do. If neither of these are availible you may have to connect your computer to a stereo reciever in the same way.

Once you have located the connection points all you have to do is to connect a cable from the TV (or as mentioned a Stereo) to the computer. If you do not have a seperate sound card in your computer (don't worry if you don't, these have become for the general public obsolete) then the computer will have an auxilery output jack somewhere on the back or maybe even on the front, it should be located next to the Microphone and Headphone jacks. If all else fails you can use the Headphone jack for this purpose also.

Having done that you should be able to run the sound to your TV or Stereo.

Hope I was able to help you

Ever since plugging in hdmi cable to lgtv can't get sound from headphones ive checked headphones on stereo they work. ive cloned computer with tv im getting sound through tv but nothing from headphones...

there's no way around that. if you use hdmi for sound, it shuts off the digital to analog converter on your sound board. so the headphone jack won't work while the tv is pluged in.

Not to computer saavy so please keep it simple. I have a Sony Vaio VGC RA840G desktop with 5.1 surround sound. Also have a Samsung LN46A850 S1F HDTV. Also a home theater system. This is hooked up to cable...

From the looks of the TV manual you have everything right, so it's very odd you're running into this problem.

Have you tried swapping through the sources? I find with one of the TVs we have on display at work that any time I'm having some troubles with it I will change the source from PC to something else, then back to PC.

If that doesn't work then I'd suggest you try reseting the sound settings back to factory default. The instructions are on page 45 of the TV manual. From the TV menu select "Sound", then "Sound Reset", then either "Reset All" or "Reset Sound Mode". I would suggest reseting all.

Last option would be to try using the headphone jack in the side of the TV, though this is a last resort kind of thing since you would have to unplug it every time you wanted to use the cable box.

Hope this helps :)

Your computer sound "out" jack has to be connected to the sound "in" jack at the back of the monitor(next to the vga input). To do this you need about a 3 foot stereo jumper cable with male connectors on both ends.
