VGA, and supervideo only carry the visual signal, so if you use one of this cables, (both the computer and the tv have to have the same output/input) then you have to have a cable attached to the computers audio output to carry audio to the TV. If your computer has HDMI output and the tv has an HDMI input, then that carries both visual and audio. When you attach the video cable to the tv, put the tv on that input source and the computer will sense the device and if the drivers are updated will fire the signal up automatically and give you the choice of using only the tv, or using both the tv and laptop monitor.
Hopefully, you did not try to put the memory card in while the pc was on and you ground yourself to the pc first. You would be amaze how quick it is to short your motherboard with static shock. Try taking the memory card out and power on your pc. If it power on, you may need to use a different memory card or make sure it is completely seated in the slot. If the pc don't power on, you may have shorted your board and it wil need to be replaced.
