Take a RCA cable and use the red/white hookups to the tv and the other end into the computer.

Or i take a headphone plug in that has a red/white end connector and plug that into the tv and the smaller jack into the computer audio spot.

It is necessary to change the audio input signal to match the name of the inputs to which you put the RCA (red/white) cables in.

As long it is on the Green Audio Out port, it should work. Make sure a sound device is enabled and that it is on/turned up. There might be options on your television as to where you plug it in. What sort of connections are you using from the PC to the TV? Component cable splitter?

for the audio i am using a wire that plugs into a headphone jack or speaker jack, and converts it into the audio composite cable (red & White)

I mean for video. That will help me to assign a proper audio port. Most TV's combine audio/video input channels to save confusion. So if you're not using DVI in as the primary video source, chances are the audio won't work there.

Which video input are you using?
