I don't really understand but a VGA cable does not carry sound.

Your thread title says "connect laptop to pc" but do you mean "laptop to tv"?

Do you have picture and sound on your TV with your current set up?

Make and model of both laptop and TV may help to identify the problem.

If you've got picture and sound from your laptop then I don't understand your problem.

You should be connecting to RGB In (D-sub 15pin) - PC

PC Audio Input 1

the problem is the sound comes out on a differnt channel ie, (av 1) instead of (av 2) so just want to know if the audio y cable (jack one side, red and white connection the other side)is the correct cable
