I have a ASUS lap top with a HDMI output and a projector with a VGA input. I bought a HDMI to VGA adapter and connected everything . I used external speakers connected to the projector but get no sound. The picture is fine. I tried connecting the speakers to the laptop but that didn't work so long as the HDMI cable was connected. Do you have any ideas?

A VGA port cannot carry sound, only video. 

 

Edit: What is the model of the ASUS?

You'll have to change your audio output device in audio settings. No doubt it has the HDMI set as active when the cable is plugged in. Simply right click on your sound Icon, select playback devices, then select "Speakers" as your default and that should fix your problem.

Did your converter also include 3.5mm audio?

The adapter I tried did not have an audio output. In my ignorance I wasn't aware that VGA didn't carry audio. I now have an adapter ordered that has an audio jack output. I do appreciate the help.

Make sure it has the same outputs as the input of the projector. Some have the 3.5mm jack and some have RCA jacks.
