    How do I make a computer put sound out through a TV's built in speakers?

    I am trying to run my computer using a Samsung HD TV as the monitor. How to I get the computer to put sound out through the TV's built-in speakers?

    If you are using a HDMI cable, it carries sound as well as video. Your PC should detect the connection and allow you to set it as a sound option in your control panel. Other than that, I believe you would need an auxiliary cable to do the same thing.

    Check your sound card specs to see if it has 'line out' sockets and - if it has - what kind of cable (phono plugs at both ends being the most likely) you'll need to connect your sound card 'outs' to the tv 'in' sockests.

    If you have a regular Headphone port on your computer, you can just buy a 3.5mm to RCA converter cable, and it then just plugs into the RCA ports of your TV, but it depends on how you're getting the video onto your tv.

    If you're using the RCA yellow input for your TV than your fine to use just that video selection.

    But if you're using a different input for the visual, you'll need to figure something else out for the audio.
