Question about Computers & Internet
I have a vga port which is good for the picture only. The sound is not so good with audio line out. Is there some way of improving ?
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.

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

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.

Interfaces 1 x Display / video - VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) , 1 x Network - Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX - RJ-45 , 1 x Microphone - Input - Mini-phone 3.5 mm , 1 x Headphones - Output - Mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm , 3 x Hi-Speed USB - 4 pin USB Type A
The above interfaces are in your laptop. There is no S-cable or HDMI interface.
If your TV have VGA port you can connect your TV to the VGA port in laptop. This will alow you to convert the TV as monitor.
