Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
My tv used to play the sound on it from my laptop when I hooked it up with the hdmi cable. now it doesn't work anymore. I think that I may have inadvertently pushed a function key or something? I need help getting the sound to play from the TV again when my laptop is hooked up to it through HDMI port.

Connect the hdmi (in) to the TV and the computer hdmi. Go into the sound settings (control panel or settings in Windows... preferences on a Mac) and choose the hdmi as the playback device. Also check the volumes on your TV and computer. If you said what OS and what version of that OS you were using, I could be more specific.

In your internet option and the menu advanced, you've got a sub-menu "multimedia" ,disable the box with "play sounds in webpage"

if it worked fine at some point then it should work fine now... i use hdmi to hdmi from my laptop to tv all the time dvi would only cause quality loss.
the first thing i would try would be to change your resolution on your laptop to a couple different settings. a lot of times, if its not set to one thats compatible with your tv, you won't see anything.
if that doesn't work, go to personalization and open the tab that says "connect an external display" and toy around with it. but yeah it doesn't sound like you have any hardware problems there.
hope this helps

check this out http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/762913.html *A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable. you will need a seperate audio cable unless you are going to use your laptop's speakers

Easy...first connect the hdmi cable between laptop and tv. Press and hold the 'fn' key on the laptop keyboard - bottom left corner. while holding the fn key, press and release the F4 key. This will toggle the laptop between its multiple display capabilities.
Press and holfn - press and release F4 until you get an image on the big screen.

You will also have to get a sound cable which you will plug into the speaker bit of your laptop and the 2 rca connections into your tv they will be 1 red and 1 yellow
