And I thought I could use these things to hook it to my computer.

Just try it, you might have to force TV detection on a TV with no S-video or DVI. I wouldnt use the TV as a monitor for extended periods if its not new enough to have a direct PC input then its not going to make a great monitor.

plug the s-video plug into the back of your card and all you have to do then is plug in the yellow plug because thats the only one that will display video you may have to by a cable that is a "male to male" to get it to plug into the TV

as warriorscott said you may have to force TV detection through your cards driver settings and being that you have NVidea i cant help you cause im running ATi so you may have to do some looking around with your settings
