In your situation you will have to use a vga replacement cable in order to show video on your TV. And depending on the graphics card inside your specific model will determine the quality of the video, if you're using the ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 you should be alright.. And to compensate for the sound you can always get yourself a pair of those Bose Companion 2 Series II speakers for $99 at Bestbuy, they're only little 2.0 speakers but they will put out decent sound and bass.
Bose has incorporated something called TrueSpace Stereo Signal Processing Circuitry, which it says is a "proprietary technology [that] helps maximize audio performance by widening the image of closely placed speakers. You experience audio that seems to come from a soundstage wider than the two speakers, allowing for full performance beyond the computer screen." According to Bose, the speakers also automatically adjust tonal balance "for rich, convincing audio performance at practically any listening level."
