You also need an audio cable to go along with the VGA cable. You will need a 3.5mm audio jack cable. Plug one side into the headphone jack of your laptop, the other side into the 3.5mm audio jack that is right beside the VGA connector.

I hooked up my laptop C300 to my tv. I get picture but, no sound. Do I need a sound card? If so, which one?


It all depends on how you connected to the TV. There are 3 common ways, using HDMI, DVI or a VGA cable. Of the 3, only HDMI transmits sound from the computer to the TV. If you are using DVI or VGA, you will need to connect a cable from the audio out (headphone) jack on the computer to audio in on the TV. If you are actually using a HDMI cable, it is probably a setting somewhere.

Unless you hook HDMI to HDMI, you won't carry sound across the HDMI cable. If you're using a VGA to HDMI converter, you'll get the picture but no sound.

I have a feeling the headset jack on the TV is an output rather than an input. Most TVs accept HDMI, RCA, or a digital audio input (either coaxial or optical). Unless you have a S/PDIF optical output from your laptop (and you obviously don't have an HDMI output), then your only other choice is likely to get a cable that splits a 1/8" headset type connector into two RCA plugs that you'll plug into an AUDIO IN input on your TV.

What cables do I need? I used a vga to vga cable and received a picture on the tv but no sound.


if you are trying to hook your computer to your tv you need an hdmi cable if your tv or computre has no hdmi port than you need to use a 1/4 to 1/4 in cable running from your headphone jack on the computer to a 1/4 input on your tv as the vga cable you are using does not carry audio.

I have a acer extensa 4230 and wanna watch download movies on tv


You should be able to connect using vga if the TV has a vga input. Once it is hooked up you can toggle the display using the key combination fn+f5.

No HDMI audio at all.


Could be lots of things, from bad cable, to your laptop no outputting sound, to your tv not functioning properly. A work-around might be to use the VGA output (and sound output) from your laptop until you can resolve it better.

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 :)

check this out http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/762913.html *A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable. you will need a seperate audio cable unless you are going to use your laptop's speakers
