Question about Computers & Internet
VGA /audio cable
You can buy a vga to hdmi cable from monoprice.com Although this will only do video. VGA is video only, HDMI supports audio and video. You could, in conjuction get a 3.5 headphone jack to RCA or composite on the same site for sound. Both cables are pretty cheap.

SOURCE: connecting PC to TV
Most tv's are not compatible in this matter. They were made to be a tv, and not a computer monitor. Some of the newer tv's are compatible. If they have a vga port then they are compatible, but may not support or have the resolution expected. The vga to s-video cables were designed mainly for the use of the newer computers with vga ports to older flat panel monitors with s-video ports, at the time that vga was first coming out. This cable is on the verge of obsolete. So, I don't believe that you're going to be able to hook the two together, and get the outcome you want.

There is a option on T.V.'s that you need to put it to VGA on the t.v. also you can go into properties on the output of the video to the t.v. and laptop to verify that it is sending a signal.
Also check to make sure all the cords are pressed in properly and that the cord doesn't have any cuts or cracks in it or any pins are bent at one or another end it happens sometimes it get's plugged in the pins aren't hard to bend.

if your tv has vga input there should be a "line in" input very near it. VGA can only get its audio source through a "line in" connecting to the coaxial audio inputs will apply the music stream to a different video input on your tv. your tv has video 1, video 2, vga, and so on, but the vga cannot show video and then audio from the video/audio coaxial inputs. you will need something like a dual male tipped 3.5mm audio connector.
Good luck and pls rate this post

Youll need a regular VGA cord and a 3.5mm to RCA conversion audio cable from Radio Shack like the one below.
forget going the HDMI route, it isn't worth the money youd have to spend on a converter. once you got your cables hooked up, consult this: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/learnmore/northrup_multimon.mspx

this is a cable that will do the work if your TV supports hdtv ..if not you will need to have a video card that has more options ...anyway the idea is that the connection will be like a DVD player in RCa cable ..and the sound the same ..need a cable with a 3.5 jack ..and a rca in he other end..or 2 if you have stereo input ...same elder models have single jack stereo input for sound..
