The improvement in cabling technology has made it possible to export the audio and video from your computer's graphics card to your external devices with just a single cable. The entire hook up takes only a minute or two and you can be enjoying your digital media files on your TV or sound system.

2). Insert one end of the cable into the port on the laptop, and plug the other end into the port on the receiver.
3). Play a song on your laptop and press the "Source" or "Input" button until you hear the sound from your laptop over the receiver's speaker system.
