hi, first Identify what computer you have. Is It A Mac or PC?
If it is PC
There should be 2 small 3.5mm coloured sockets on the back,front (or both ) of the main box (tower/desktop unit). You should find that they are coloured Green and Red. Green is for sound output (Headphones/speakers or hifi) and the Red is for sound input or Recording. Used for things like microphones. Some will accept line sources such as mixers and Ipods pr cassette players, but please check your sound manager, mixer settings in your opperating system to make your you have an adjustable input setting for Mic and Line input attenuation as not all do and you may end up with a distorted mess. You may also find there is a small diagram of headphones or a microphone to indicate sound "in" and "out" ports.
If you have a mac
Appart fom me being envious :-) there are two sockets. On laptop types, on the side or on the tower types on the front,back or both. They have a diagram of a microphone and headphones. Hadphones is for audio output to headphones, speakers, hifi, dj mixer. The Microphone is a sound input. Please read above for microphone port usage. Hopefully this answers your question. Please also bear in mind that if you have no sound once plugged in, you may need to adjust the audio properties in the system in the system and/or program you may be using
Well if you currently find the sound of the Bose acceptable and your inbuilt HD TV speakers poor, then the answer is yes. Should you not like the sound of the Bose, plugging them into an HD TV won't make them sound any better :-)
Just use the headphone out of your HD TV to connect. You may find you need to enable the headphone socket/volume via the menu settings on your HD TV
You need to check if the green cable from the computer tower is blugged into the back of the monitor (The cable looks the same at both the ends) this is for the output to come through the monitor.
If that is plugged in and if not working, Try a headphone on the tower and check if the sound is coming from the headphone, If yes, You will have to adjust the volume on the monitor or the speaker of the monitor might have gone bad. If there is no sound coming in, Then the problem is with the tower and not the monitor.
You don't write which operating system you use, but generally you should be able to choose where the sound output goes in the Sound Properties in Control Panel. If however Sony decided to put some special software that does the thinking for you, and directs the sound output via the HDMI when connected, then you have to dig deeper...
