connect PC to TV

by kallen420 - 8/18/09 7:24 AM

Hi, I have a new Samsung LCD HD TV LN40b530 and I am trying to connect my HP DV9000 lap top to it so I can watch movies from Netflix.
I bought the D Sub cable and that worked, the picture from computer is now on TV, but when I tried to connect the audio it won't work. I bout a cable that has a red and white ends on one side and a single one on the other. I tried to connect the single one to the computer and the other 2 to the TV but I don't get any sound. The cabe I bought says Stereo Y adapter and the store clerk said it should work. Do I have the correct cable? If not what do I need and how should I connect it. When I spoke to the tech at your company he told me to connect it into the spot right next to where the D Sub cable goes on the TV, but there is no area right next to it. There is one for a red and white above it to the right and one on the bottom. Please help, I'm tired of going to stores here and talking to people who don't know what they are doing. I'm not complaining about your tech's they have been very helpful.
