Default Mix RCA and Component

I am trying to hook up my computer to my TV but I have limited cable options.

What I have,

-HDTV output cable (it has three cables extending outwards that are red, green, and blue... same as component?)
-RCA Cables (2)
-S-Video to composite adaptor

My question is: can I attach an RCA cable to the HDTV output cable or will that not work?

and... Is the yellow cord from an RCA cable the same as a composite cable? Can I use that to hook up my computer to my TV?

Sorry if I am being confusing... I am really new to this.

Thanks for your help!!

No, you can't mix component and composite.

What inputs does your tv have? Just component I'm guessing?
