You might be better off with external speakers connected to the laptop's audio output. Flat panel TV speakers tend to be weak.

If you want to continue with the HDMI option and your laptop doesn't have an HDMI port, try a USB to HDMI adapter. Look carefully, some models output 720p not 1080p. One possible unit: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Aluratek-AUH200F-Aluratek-USB-to-HDMI-1080p-Adapter/16386417 . However, your video rate may be sluggish due to the limits of the USB port. (If you have a USB 3.0 port on your laptop and find a USB 3.0 adapter, it won't be as bad. USB 2.0 adapters are more common.)

Look at the specs for your laptop or add a comment with the make and model. My mom's HP laptop (purchased in 2009) has an HDMI out; however, the audio driver doesn't go to HDMI out by default.

You may need to adjust the audio output options. (In Windows 7, Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Then Select Manage Audio Devices under Sound. Check the Playback tab for your audio output options and change the default device if needed.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: VGA and Audio cables connected to PC but no audio through TV

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

SOURCE: connect my laptop to tv with a sound

Your computer may have come with cables to do just that. If not, you have options:

For video, I would check your TV inputs to see if it has a VGA port, since that would be the easiest. You can also get VGA to RCA or S-Video converters online as well if your TV does not have a VGA port. Almost all TV's these days have RCA inputs.

For audio, you can get a headphone jack (3.5mm) to RCA converter.

If you can't find the converters at your local electronics store, just google VGA to RCA and headphone to RCA.

Once you have the necessary cables connected to your TV, your computer will recognize that it has been connected to an external video source. I'm not sure, but I think it is either key combination Fn+F6 or F7 to perform a monitor switch. You can also right-click on the desktop and select properties (or personalize in vista). Then switch to the settings tab (or Display settings in vista) and click on the alternate display.

It may be that your cable box is outputting at a resolution your TV doesn't recognise or doesn't support. Do you have any other connection you can use from your cable box to your TV to check the settings?

No video signal using HDMI cable.


This sounds similar to my Vizio's second HDMI port; they sometimes become finicky after a while. You may have to just adjust and wiggle the end of the cable inserted into the TV; if it works, then make sure you don't even slightly touch it or else it'll lose signal again. If you have any other ports, try them instead; otherwise the problem may eventually get to an unusable point. You will have to have the port repaired or the TV replaced.

No sound on TV with hdmi cord


HI Mike,

Sometimes HDMI ports have their sound channel shared with the VGA/RCA port and they need to be switched around in the TV settings.

I dont know what is brand is your TV set so you will have to check yourself in the sound settings and also check for PC settings, see if you can change that around.

You can also just try another HDMI port on your TV that have the sound dedicated to it.

Sound but no picture


Your player has several outputs and you might want to start with the basic Video Audo Left Right output first.

Set your with your plazma to see if you can change the input types to accept the video and audio input which will probably be labeled AV 1, AV 2 and so on.

My guess is that you have it set for Component Red Blue Green which his a high def (just before HTMI) and requires a separate audio cable. Your player, depending on the age of the unit, probably will not have Red Blue Green picture output.

Next if you have an HTMI output from your player hook that to your Plazma in the HDMI 1 position and select it on the TV's setting. Audio and Video are both carried in the HDMI cable.

Good luck, my name is Eric Kirkhuff
