Mine is done via a hdmi lead from graphics card to lcd tv.
I had to change the settings for the audio device in control panel to use the hdmi settings.

Also using vista

VGA/15 pin D-Sub doesn't carry audio. HDMI on the otherhand does.

If using VGA there should be an audio input on the TV for sound. If there isn't one marked PC or PC audio try the left and right channels for the composite and component inputs.
