My first venture in accessing internet on tv. I deployed a VGA cable from the appropriate ports on a Sanyo dp32640 TV to a HP 2000 laptop running Windows 7. I checked to see that PC was enabled on the input menu of the TV. However, with everything turned on and the PC input selected I got a "no signal" message.

I was playing with the display settings on the laptop. Because of or in spite of what I did, I began to get the PC image on the TV. I navigated to Youtube and played a video and it was displayed on the TV.

Two issues: 1 - The image on the TV is completely blue. And 2 - sound comes from the computer and not the TV.

I assume I have to run a separate, audio cable from the computer to the TV.

I tried tweaking the color setting on the TV without success. I have no idea what else to do.

Hi mate.

I don't think a VGA cable carries sound, you'll need a HDMI cable in order for the sound to work.

If it's set up right, your entire desktop should be displayed on the TV screen, mouse cursor and all and it should be in the same full color. You may have a bad cable or it may not be fully connected properly

Yes, you'll need a separate audio cable if your TV has that input.

Your better off using Apple TV or Chrome cast and "cast" or airplay apps etc or mirror to your TV than deal with VGA on a TV which always is diffluct

I think this is a good suggestion. I do this sometimes and has worked for me.
