I just recently bought the TV found at this link: Click Here

I see that the TV has a VGA input so I though it requires the same cable as a computer to a LCD Projector. But then it came to my attention that a TV's speakers would be better if the audio played on them than on a laptop's. So what cable would I need to show my computer screen on the TV and hear the audio on the tv? OR can I only show my computer's content on the TV and have to use to laptop's speakers?

The vga cable only carries the video to the monitor or TV. To use the TV speakers for sound-output from your laptop you would also need to a connect the audio-out port from your laptop (if it has one) to the audio-in connector on the TV, using a cable with suitable connectors at each end to match the output-port on your laptop and the input-port on the TV.

Could you post a link to a VGA cable so I can see what the one I need looks like? Also could you post a link for the audio cable that runs from the laptop to tv?
