You can try a HDMI /DVI cable. The DVI only carries video.

can we use the HDMI cable just to carry only video. I know that it carries both audio and video. But if u want HDMI to carry only video how do we usually do it

You will probably have to go dvi to hdmi (http://tendonusa.com/shop/product.php?productid=39&cat=8&page=1) If you are trying to hook up surround sound you can usually use an optical audio to go to the receiver and then turn off the sound coming from the TV.
