Question Thesea are audio jacks right?
After I hooked up my computer to my TV I got audio jacks plugged them in and the computer sees the black jack but there still no audio, These are audio jacks right?

Yes,that is a 3.5mm to rca splitter cable.
If you are trying to use the TV speakers for computer audio
the small end of the cable should go in the green jack.
You also need to make sure the TV connections are input and not outputs.
If they are inputs,you would need to check the settings in the TV to
select that input.
If you are trying to playback TV through the computer speakers,you need
to connect the 3.5mm plug to line in.
I am assuming you have windows 7.
Go to start/control panel/sound.
On the recording tab,make sure line in is set as default then click properties
and make sure the levels are turned up and it's not muted.

Yes I have windows 7, and yes I am trying to use TV speakers for computer audio.
You said "the small end of the cable should go in the green jack", Which one? I have 2 small ends. Also when i plug red and white to red/white input and the black jack into headphones my other speakers stop working.
So maybe it sees it but it doesn't communicate with my computer?

Usually the output on the computer is the green jack.
The small plug on your cable should go there.
The red and white plugs go to the TV input.
And you would still need to check the TV menu and select that audio input.
Like I said before,make sure that is actually inputs and not outputs.
Front audio jacks are usually designed to automatically turn off the back jacks.
The sound card on your computer should have some audio control panel software.
If your audio is HD,you may be able to set it to run both the front and back at the same time.
Might be worth checking into.

I plugged the black end into the green hole in my computer, and the red and white jacks into the input of my computer and no sound. and I went threw the TV settings and Computer settings are on but half the sound is blocked off. More specificly the "headphone/audio out", Everything else blocked off, it doesn't seem to matter for PC.

The green jack is analog audio.
You want to connect the black end of your cable there.
Then set the default playback device to speakers.
That will activate audio on the green jack.

Then connect the red and white connectors to the TV and
make sure the input setting on the TV is set to the inputs.

Make sure the volume is up loud enough to hear in windows
as windows will be controlling the volume.

It doesn't see speakers when I unplug the external ones, and if i leave them plugged in (usb for power) those are the speakers. Other than that there's no sound anywhere.
