I have a Hyundai HPTD-4202S and a Dell Dimension 3100

The TV has two inputs DVI-IN and RGB-DTV/PC INPUT my PC just has the standard VGA monitor output.

Am I right in thinking that all I need is a VGA to DVI cable?? Will that give me sound?

Or do I need a TV Tuner Card etc?

Thanks

You will need to use the RGB-DTV/PC INPUT with a VGA cable from the pc. The TV should have a separate sound input, feed the soundcard output into this. If your tv doesnt have this then you will need to use an external amplifier.

You're right it has got a seperate pc sound input.

So should I be able to buy a straight VGA to RGB-DTV cable? Just looked on ebay and can't find one?

perhaps you need to update the drivers on the DELL although 1024x768 is proabably a decent bet try 1280x720 if you can
