Ok, awesome, who is your TV made by. Because it has the VGA input, I'll assume it's an HDTV. And it's made by Sony? Toshiba?

Unfortunately, I can't find any detailed illustrations for the back panel on that unit. There is probably a 3.5mm jack above or below the VGA port that you could use. But for the most part, you can't use RCA+VGA on the same input channel unless there is an "AUX audio" you can change the input to. You could plug into the AUX channel on any receiver/pre-amps if you have them.

On my Toshiba, there's an option in the menu, to take the audio fron either the HDMI port, or one of the sets of red/white plugs.

Assuming your computer has a 3.5mm stereo port, there's no need for adapters. Your television has a 3.5mm input for this very purpose located on the right hand side. Just use this cord to connect everything together.
