I'll need a bit more information on your issue to help you first:
1.) You said: "trying to get sound on the tv to the computer". -- Did you perhaps mean that you're trying to get the audio which comes out of your computer to "play" on your TV?

2.) If I assume correctly, then you have the audio cable connected to the wrong place on the computer.. and possibly on the wrong place on the TV. If you are indeed trying to get the audio from your computer to play through the speakers on your TV, then you need to:

(this is also assuming you're using a "headphone jack-sized" plug on one end, with the other end being the old-style "RCA" left and right channels.. [Left = white; Red = right])

Firstly, the 'headphone jack"-style end of the audio cable needs to be plugged into the "audio out" or "headphones" jack. Sometimes the audio jacks on a computer are color-coded. If this is the case, the green jack is the one you want.

Next, the other end (which again I'm assuming are the left / right channels -- [white / red plugs]) needs to be plugged into the "audio in" on the TV which matches with the same input as your VGA cable is plugged into. Once the cable is hooked up in this way, you should be able to hear all audio coming from your computer on your TV's speakers.

Please let me know if I'm assuming incorrectly on what you're trying to accomplish with the audio. -- I hope I was helpful! Please let me know if you have any other questions!

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.

I cant connect my tv to computer


Hello

All modern TV's can be used as computer monitors - you just need the correct cables and select the correct input on the TV.

What cable are you using to connect your PC to your TV? VGA or HDMI? Your listed TV has both ports but your computer may not have a HDMI port. Either way, connect the correct cable from your PC to your TV and note how the port is labeled.

Turn the TV on and then find the "Input Select" button on the remote and press it until the above port appears on the screen.

If you use the VGA port, you will need to hook up the audio from the PC to the "PC/DVI Audio In" port so the sound will play on the TV speakers.

You can find the manual for your TV here:

Hope this helps!

I want to connect my dell inspiron 1525 to my lcd hd ready tv but have no idea how to? Does anyone have any advice?


The 1525has a a hdmi port which you can plug a hdmi cord into. This may not support the audio. the tv and pc should detect the new monitor automatically or you may have to toggle it by hitting F4 key.

I have a 42 in lcd i hooked my computer up to it the computer sound isnt comeing out of the tv how do i get it to come out my suround sound there is a jack like a head phone plug where i hooked the...


Now i assume you have connected the Computer using a VGA cable ( 15 D pin connector )bobhifi_41.jpgbecause if you had used an HDMI cable the sound would have come by default. The VGA cable only carries analogue Video signals. So you will have to get 3.5 mm phono to 2 RCA cable to connect the sound out of the PC to the TV's audio in socket ( next to the VGA socket labeled audio IN )

I have a V-zon digital tv that I can't get the sound to work when I am on the internet or in other words I don't know how to hook the cable box to the tv to get the sound. The tv can only get the pictures...


When you are using the TV as a monitor (VGA) you need to connect the audio out from the computer to the VGA audio in of the TV. (Otherwise connect computer speakers to the computer (if a desktop) and use those speakers.) The audio out for a desktop is usually marked by a green 3.5 mm jack. The VGA audio in will be a 3.5 mm jack as well; so an audio patch cable (3.5 mm M/M) is needed. (The green port is normal for computer with Line-In, Line-Out and Microphone ports. If the computer has an option for surround sound, check the manual to make sure which port you should use for Line-Out.)

If your cable box has an internet connection (like some DVRs, blu-ray players and TVs), the HDMI cable will carry the audio without separating it out unless you feed the signal through a home theater system (or audio receiver) for a surround sound system.

Which model TV do you have? That will help track down where the VGA audio in port will be. Some models have the VGA audio in next to the VGA port. On other TVs, it is near other audio input and output jacks. Usually it is clearly labeled but you may need a magnifying glass to read the text. (Sometimes it will be labeled VGA/DVI audio in.)

I hope this helps.

(I have one TV in my household where the DVI audio in uses 2 RCA jacks, even with a computer as the source (so there may be some TVs with that for the VGA source as well). For that situation, I use a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA (M/M/M) cable or an adapter - either 2 RCA (F/F) to 3.5 mm (M) at the computer with an RCA audio cable or 2 RCA (M/M) to 3.5 mm (F) at the TV with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable.)

We've hooked up a desktop PC to our Philips 40pfl5505d/f7, and we can get video but not sound. we have a stereo mini cable from the speaker (green) slot in the comp. to the PC audio in/ out slots...


if you have the video cable connect via the vga to vga lead then if you look next to where the vga cable is connected on the tv there is a pc audio input socket, what you need is a 3.5mm stereo jack to a 3.5mmjack you have it on the right connection on the pc you just need to connect it to the right input on the tv which as i have said is next to the vga plug

Connected samsung TV to PC vi VGA cable as suggested by samsung support. Visual working correctly, no sound output. Tried hooking up standard audio jack leads with l-r splitter to TV to get audio. No...


You need a seperate speaker system when your tv is on vga there is no option to recieve a sound input. In fact if you hook your cables for sound back up to the tv you will probably find that there is sound but on a diffrent input channel. The other option is to use a diffrent type of connection like hdmi if your computer and tv support it which DOES support audio and vido throught the TV.

Have hooked up Magnavox 19" tv as computer screen but don't have sound.


If the computer was connected to the Magnavox using the VGA connector you will not hear sound through the Magnavox, as the VGA connector is a video signal only. Unless you use the HDMI connector, which carries both video and audio, you may not have sound. Verify the back of the Magnavox to see if there are any audio inputs from the PC that may work alongside the VGA connection. Most televisions with a VGA connector do not have this feature as the VGA is strictly for video signal and not sound.

Vga audio in


VGA does not provide sound, only video signal.
to get sound, you need to run a signal from the audio output of the computer (1/8" mini) to the audio in of the TV (RCA).
