Hi Steve, you will need a SVGA/VGA lead for the visual, to connect from the VGA out of the PC, and then on the back of the Bravia there is PC input (vga) connection. You will also need an Audio connection if you want to hear the sounds through the TV and not the PC, A normal 3.5mm lead will do.

still cant get the sound to come through the tv even with 3.5mm jack into rca,

Have you checked the settings on your pc for the audio output? (probably the headphone socket) and check that it is not muted.
