Default Old Toshiba laptop to connect to HDTV

Hey everyone!

I have a Toshiba Satellite AMD Athlon X2 P320. It has no digital audio output, one vga port and no HDMI port.

Is there ANY cord or hookup I can get that will allow me to hook it up to an HDTV?

Like this?
Amazon.com: VGA to HDMI Cable, 6 feet: Electronics

That cable won't do sound, though, as VGA doesn't handle it. You would have to use external speakers or an audio cable for it.
