Plasma Hook up

I am trying to hook up my 42' plasma to my computer so that I can use it as a monitor. The problem that I am having is that i don't have a HDMI jack on the plasma, only s-video. The other is that I am using a Bose surround sound system and A direct TV system along with it and I cannot figure out how they should all be wired together. Thanks for any help.

The only way that you can connect a tv using s video, is if your pc has an s video out on the graphics card, so as to clone the screen or by a vga to s video adapter, see below to get the sound you will need an auxilliary in audio phono connection on the tv or your Bose from your sound connector at the back of the pc, normally the green socket
