    To get volume to tv you need a cable to convert the stero to RCA. So the easiest way is to male to male and have one plug or you can get an adapter that converts your stero to two female rca for left and right audio.

    Here is a link for an adapter http://www.audiogear.com/cgi-bin/shopper.cgi?key=ADPT-2RCFMSM&preadd=action

    Here is a link for a cable http://www.audiogear.com/cgi-bin/shopper.cgi?key=Adpt2RcmMsm&preadd=action

    You can get these from any audio store best buy, guitar places, radio shack etc.

    As well VGA to HDMI want give you audio, but if you have an HDMI port, you can check if your labtop supports HDMI audio.

    Thanks for the help it only shows my laptop speakers there, so I guess it will have to be by RCA

    I have a HP DV7 which does support HDMI audio. but before I would just use the VGA output to my TV, then use the audio out jack, into my audio input jack. ( HEadphone Size on both laptop and TV.)

    More then likely if your laptop has an HDMI output, it will support both video and audio. The sound should automatically go to the HDMI cable once a connection between the TV and PC is made. If it doesn't you may need to go into sound settings and set the HDMI sound as default.
