SOURCE: VGA to SHARP flat sreen tv
1. vga to vga cable
2. vga to dvi cable
3. vga to dvi cable, then dvi to component cable
Your tv must have 1 of the following:
- vga connector
- dvi connector
- component connector

You just connect the green plug to a mini 1/8 line out or use a stereo RCA male to mini 1/8 female adapter (radio shack or cyberguys.com) and connect your desktop speaker to that.
You can also connect surround sound speakers if your flat panel TV supports it. There are two ways, one is with the digital out, usually a black socket, to a digital input, also usually black. This is pretty much the same as a coaxial connector. Other options are to use a fiber cable but the difference is negligible and the headaches severe. Many flat panels have the good old green socket, which is analogue and most surround systems will take an analogue input. The difference in surround sound is quite considerable using analogue.
The most affordable surround sound speaker systems are made by Creative Labs and include models less than $200 and usually include a remote. Which ever you choose, you want the remote so you can mute when the phone rings and also control the volume as well. I've used newegg.com as a vendor for these systems extensively as you usually have 30 days to return as unacceptable for your application. Avoid Ebay.
Let me know if this has only opened the door to more questions or if you have all you need to know.

Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.

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 :)
