    Hello all, I'd appreciate some advice.

    I'm expecting delivery of my Toshiba 27wl56p today and as a result, I've decided to try and sort out my Celeron 2Ghz pc so that it's at least some use on it.

    First off, I downloaded Power Dvd 6 trial. Now when I use this, I get no sound from the dvd. I'm only using onboard sound at the moment so if anyone can tell me how to get it to output to that, I'd be grateful.

    Secondly, I would like to have 5.1 sound in my bedroom from it. I have a brill old Dts and DD amp but need to obviously get a decent sound card, which will output to it via either coax or optical. Any recommendations?

    Thirdly, I'd like a graphics card that would utilise the hdmi socket of the Toshy. I don't play games, I'll only be watching Dvds on it, so I'd like it to be as cheap as possible really. Any recommendations on this too?

    I know I'm a cheeky beggar and asking a lot lol.

    Regards

    Jambo.
