Thanks for the solutions.
It seems like my A/V button on the remote controller does not work for swithcing to A/V mode.
Now I am using HP picture in picture display the vedio from XBOX. However, I can not hear any sound from Xbox though the sound is still working when I switch back to computer mode. The connection with an external speaker does not help. The audio ouput through hdmi actually works well when I plug in a HDTV. I am looking for the solution for the sound from XBOX.

What I did for my xbox was use the hdmi port in back and connect it to my monitor for the video and then use another cable (the a/v cable) which is also plugged in to the 360 and use a coaxical cable from that to my headphone adapter. Or you could use the white and red audio on that a/v cable. If you only have the hdmi cable hooked up to the 360 then it will use that cable to route audio and video signals through.
I believe a vga a/v cable for the 360 is what you would need.
