Hmm so this means I will need a seperate sound system?

Not a sound system, just an audio wire, they very cheap.

Headphone jack from your laptop, to the headphone jack to your TV.

This is what I currently do with mine.

ALternatively, you can get VGA cables with an attached audio cable for a little extra, think I paid £8 a few months back, just more tidy and saves the extra wires.

Ok simple enough thank you. Will be getting a system at some point anyway.

Oky doke, not 100% sure, but I think, you'll need something coming from the laptop.

Eg, if you display whatever is going from your laptop on the TV, you'll need something coming from your laptop.

I guess that you'll need this wire to work with the sound system.

If someone can confirm that be great.

hth, pretty hard for me to explain via forum speak :)

Yeah will look a bit more into it nearer the time. No rush. Thanks again Deal4me

I think you'll need a 3.5mm headphone jack going to 2 phono connectors.

Not sure if the tv will let you set audio from one source and video from another source at the same time though.....

Just use a 5.1 sound system connected to the laptop surely???
#11
well the laptop will have its own speakers anyway, but most tv's i think have an audio input beside the vga, mine does.
