connecting laptop to TV


I want to watch a movie on the HDTV from my laptop by connecting them together. I have a VGA cable and port for video connections however I receive no audio using the rca cable plugging it to the headphone jack.

I tried changing the default on 'sounds and devices'. doesnt work.

ive recently upgraded to windows 7 but i used to use vista and it worked perfectly.

can someone explain this to me? I cannot use the HDMI cable simply bcause my laptop doesnt have the port.

thank you in advance for any assistance
