I want to connect a laptop with HDMI to a monitor with DVI and VGA inputs. I want to also have audio. Any suggestions for a cable?

You can use an HDMI to DVI or VGA converter, but you will lose audio output like you have said.

You'll need to use some sort of external audio device such as speakers or a headset.
