Answers :

Computers have two seperate systems - one for video and one for sound.\015\012
\015\012
The only computer (or laptop) connection that carries both video\015\012and sound is HDMI. If you do not have a HDMI/DVI connector on the back\015\012of your computer, then you will have to use the VGA-composite or\015\012s-video connectors to display your PC's output on an external monitor\015\012like an LCD TV.
\015\012
On both my HP and Dell laptops the display settings (Start/Control\015\012Panel/Personalize/Display Settings) allow two modes - single or dual\015\012monitor mode. Single monitor mode allows me to switch between any one\015\012of three possible video outputs - VGA-composite, S-Video or laptop\015\012screen, or a split-desktop (display spread over two seperate monitors).\015\012Dual monitor mode allows the same display on any two of three possible\015\012video outputs.
\015\012
Switching is performed using the fn keys on the keyboard (fn key\015\012plus the F2, F8, etc. function key with the display marking). You guys\015\012use single monitor mode until you figure out what your are doing.\015\012Select VGA-composite or S-Video.\015\012
\015\012
Non-HDMI sound to your TV monitor or sound system must be obtained\015\012from your laptop's Headphone or S/PDIF jacks. Headphone is stereo and\015\012S/PDIF is 5.1 surround sound. Headphone is electrical, but S/PDIF may\015\012be electrical or optical (laser light). You must set the sound jack\015\012that you intend to use as the default on the PC control panel\015\012(Start/Control Panel/Sound).\015\012
\015\012
None of these connectors is two-way in the context of an LCD\015\012monitor - your PC cannot record a TV picture or sound from the external\015\012monitor. To accomplish this you must purchase a video converter box\015\012that converts cable TV or video+sound inputs to USB format usable by\015\012your laptop. Do this and you can turn your laptop into a Tivo\015\012recorder/DVD burner using Beyond TV, Sage TV or a variety of other\015\012software packages.

I have just bought the logitech x-540 speakers and have found that they have 3 input cables (one for each of the left, right and centre speakers). However my laptop only has 2 input 'holes'. The headphone one and one next to it (mic one maybe) I can connect two of the cables and seem to get sound out of all speakers if I use matrix mode but i'm not sure if this is the true sound I should be getting?
