How can I connect my laptop to the lcd (Watching Movie)?

Hello folks. well I'm gonna explain the problem that's been bothering me for a long time. I've got myself a laptop which doesn't have HDMI port. what I wanna do is watching movies, by play the movie on the laptop and watch it on LCD. I don't have any problem about transferring the picture to the LCD. I use a VGA cable and I got the picture so good. my problem is the sound/audio of the movie. I can't find a way to transfer the sound to the LCD. I want to hear the sound from the TV not the laptop. I want to control the sound on the TV with the remote control and I want to hear it from the TV. so I bought some audio cables but they didn't work. and now after more than a year the problem is still bothering me. I've got some pictures of my stuffs. first one is the back of my TV, you can check all the ports of the LCD :

second picture is the in/out ports on my laptop :

and here is the cable that I bought to transfer the sound but it didn't work. I thought maybe the cable is damaged so I bought another one,which looks the same, but that didn't help me :

so I really appreciate if you give me a solution.
many many thanks in advance

Hiya pal and welcome to the forums

What you need to do is connect this cable



From the speaker out connection (green hole) on your laptop to the (pc audio in) on the TV. Connect the vga cable configure your laptop screen settings for dual view (if needed) Change the source on your TV to PC, and away you go.

Hope this helps a bit

Hiya buddy. thanks for the reply. well it seems that I don't have the cable you're suggesting. so it means that those two audio cables that I bought are useless (in this matter), right? so I'm gonna buy this green cable. can you please tell me the technical name of this cable, so I can request at the store? and by the way I already got the picture perfectly with the VGA cable,the only problem is audio. so after buying this green cable I don't have to do anything else, right? I mean the picture still goes through the VGA cable and then the audio will transfer via this green cable?
thanks again

No probs pal

It's called a 3.5mm Stereo Audio Jack

3.5 mm Stereo Jack plug

Once you have this cable you should be fine
