The bottom pic looks like the cable I used to download pics from my older digital camera. It too has a 3 circuit 3.5mm plug on one end and a serial plug on the other.
The top looks the same but the two seperate wire on the top one has me pozzled.

If you're PC runs fine without it, store the wire or just trash it.

I think I know what it is for. It may have come with your video card, you plug that into your video card adapter and you plug in the end "stereo" peice into the Yellow Input circle in the back of your Television. Maybe?

looks to me like a it belongs to a camcorder/digital camera that you can attach to your plasma or lcd screen. you can use this type of 3.5mm plug for video and then attacht the other end to the screen
