Question about Acer Computers & Internet
On the TV, check the menus to see if there is an audio input selector and, obviously, ensure it's set to the right socket. In some cases the audio is linked to the video input selection so if you connect the video using a SCART connector, the TV will ignore the phono sockets. There is often an SVHS connector for video which is associated with the phono sockets and to use this you will need a VGA to SVHS cable. If you're in the UK, these cost a few pouns from eBuyer. Again, make sure the right input is selected on the TV menu (although some do it automatically).
Many monitor TVs have an independent volume control for the PC audio input and by default this always starts off at 0 so you can't accidentally blast your ears. Adjust to taste :)
Can you plug a pair of headphones into the PC socket & make sure you're getting audio out of it?
And finally, do you have an MP3 or CD player you can use: connect it's headphone output to the TV & see if that works.

Have you got the TV set to the correct channel ? A lot of the TV's have a PC input, but no sound when that input is selected, so plugging the audio into another input won't allow you to use it as a monitor and have sound at the same time. If it were a desktop PC, you could use a DVI-HDMI convertor and get the sound in that way, but most, if not all, laptops have analogue 15 pin video outputs.
