Ant's solution works as well. One way or another you need the VGA connected to the TV and the "headphone" jack connected to the tv.

Never used this card, but it's an example. You'll want to make sure it comes with a low-profile bracket or you'll want to pick one up while shopping if it doesn't (they are only a couple bucks).

Heres a diagram

$5 lead does the trick

I am probably going to go with Ants solution until I can afford to get a good GPU for it..

Just an update, Whilst I was connecting my laptop up last night to the tv in my bedroom and the HDMI cord wouldn't work, I had a spare aux cord and VGA cable, So the TV has input for PC sound and I hooked that up and it works fine, Would it also work if I use a pair of white or red cable for audio in TV's like the AV cables plugged into my desktop without needing any adapters?

Yeah you can get a 3.5mm plug to RCA audio plugs cable. Get one that's attenuated otherwise the audio signal will be too strong and it will distort.

Yeah I am going to go that way as it's the most easiest, simplest and cheapest.
