Notebook VGA output, has it a digital signal?

I have a Presario A900 (A961EM) with a VGA output. I want to connect it to my HDMI TV which has a HDMI socket. If I connect the laptop to my TV with a VGA to HDMI lead will it work with video and sound?

Re: Notebook VGA output, has it a digital signal?

I am highly certain that it will not work, I'm afraid..

 

VGA is an analogue signal, HDMI is digital.  

 

If you have a DVI port on the TV, you will be able to connect with a VGA to DVI cable.

 

Also, VGA does NOT carry sound data, so you would need to connect the sound elsewhere, via the headphone jack.

 

Hope this helps

Hi & Thanks, I had to connect with S-Video and Audio leads. No DVI on my TV, but thanks.
