My laptop sound card is not working and I will use ipad's speaker for my laptop with bluetooth pair. For example when I'll watch movie on my laptop, its sound play with my ipad until I fixed my laptop sound card.

How can I?

You can use Airfoil to do this via your wireless network. Run Airfoil Speakers Touch on the iPad, and the Airfoil application on your Windows or Mac OS X computer.

Can I play sound from iPad while I don't have any sound card on my laptop? @DanielBeck – Navid_gh Apr 18 '13 at 12:10
@Navid_gh What kind of laptop doesn't have any sound? Chances are Airfoil won't work because the applications don't even start playing. – Daniel Beck Apr 18 '13 at 12:41
My laptop ( XPS L501X ) sound card is not available, I think it's broken.My Kmplayer started and play video and its sync with ipad and ipad showed receiving sound data from kmplayer but iPad don't play the movie sound. @DanielBeck – Navid_gh Apr 18 '13 at 18:30
@Navid_gh Did you mute your iPad's speakers? Are you able to play sound in other apps? – Daniel Beck Apr 18 '13 at 20:49
