Hi:
No, you wont get sound unless you run using a vga cable, as that just is video. You would have to run a seperate sound connection from your laptop headphone jack to the audio in of your television.

Have a Westinghouse HDTV ...using it for a computer monitor only...pc comes in great...but no sound...connected them with a 15 pin analog VGA cable and a stereo mini cable for sound


Have you installed the driver for the monitor? Look for the cd that came with it and install it to your computer. If the driver is already installed, then update it. You can use RadarSync to update all.

To convert a LCD Monitor into a TV
Instructions
    • 1

      Compare internal and external TV tuners that are designed for use with computers. See if the tuner supports HD, DVI, component video, S-video, stereo, surround sound or other features you might like to use. Ensure that any internal devices will work with the expansion slots in your computer.

    • 2

      Purchase a regular TV tuner if your monitor has S-video, coaxial or RCA inputs. These can be seen at the back of the monitor. S-video should be clearly marked; coaxial is a large round port, and RCA inputs are typically smaller and brightly colored. If your monitor does not have these inputs, purchase a special TV tuner designed just for computer monitors. If you would like to use the tuner with your computer and monitor, choose an internal TV tuner. If you're using your computer monitor as a television on its own, select a stand-alone external tuner. Install the internal TV in your computer, if applicable.

    • 3

      Connect the TV tuner to the monitor with the proper cable. Select S-video as the connection option if both your tuner and monitor support it. Choose RCA component video as your next option. Use coaxial only if your monitor and tuner do not have the aforementioned connections. If your monitor has none of these connections, use a standard VGA cable to connect the tuner and monitor.

    • 4

      Connect the tuner's audio outputs to your monitor's speakers. If your monitor has no speakers directly attached, connect external speakers to the TV tuner. This can usually be achieved using regular audio or RCA cable.

    • 5

      Install an HD antenna high on a wall if you will be picking up free over-the-air television signals with your monitor. If you will be using satellite or cable TV with your monitor, simply plug the satellite or cable set top box into the tuner using RCA or coaxial cables. Then connect the tuner directly to the monitor.

    • 6

      Set your tuner to the channel you use to pick up television stations. If you receive free over-the-air television, this channel will be 3 or 4. If you have satellite or cable TV, this station is determined by your television service provider. Check the documentation that came with your system to determine which channel to set the tuner on. You will probably need to change channels using the satellite or cable box rather than the TV tuner.

LG W2361V 23 Vga to HDMI Cable Not Working


You have a cable problem as no such thing as a VGA to HDMI cable exists.

HDMI is a didital signal and is thus not compatable with an anolog VGA signal. HDMI to DVI cables however do exist as both are digital signals.

Hope this helps.

How to connect samsung pasma tv to pc?model number is PS42B450B1XUM


Hello,

That does depend on the PC, but I'll assume it's a pretty standard PC.

You ideally need a Male 15Pin VGA cable to Male 15Pin VGA cable. (aka A normal Monitor Cable) The same as you probably have connected between your PC and Monitor.

Your TV has a 15Pin VGA Female socket on the back, this cable plugs into here.

For Sound the TV has what looks like a headphone socket next to the VGA Plug. You need to use a Stereo Jack Plug to Stereo Jack Plug Cable. 3.5mm. This goes from your PC's Audio Line Out (rear of the PC) to the Plug on the rear of the TV. It is usually marked Aux In or PC Sound.

Enjoy, The PC will look great on the Tv.

Monitor outputs from PCs can be very fustrating. First of all, is the PC a laptop? If so most of them do not have a dual monitor capability for supporting an external monitor, or if they do it can be difficult to get it to use both monitors at the same time. Try updating the drivers for the video board. Most of them are sold with drivers that are outdated.
