Direcly I can't think of a way. The easiest way, and the way I would do it if I had to, would be to use a modern receiver with hdmi inputs. Plug your pc via hdmi into the receiver and from there send the signal to the tv with whatever output works for you. Otherwise you are going to have to buy a hdmi to composite adapter that costs at least 50 eggs.

The cheapest thing you could try, is buy a vga to composite/cinch/svideo cable, 2-3 eggs, and use a 3.5 to cinch cable to transmit audio. Be warned though the analog TV resolution is going to be around 640x480, so its going to look like ass. I tried it a few years back and just ended up buying an HD TV instead.

3.5mm is the standard audio out on your computer, and cinch is the red and white cables. You can get that at radioshack for a few bucks.
and then get a vga to rca cable. Note if you only have DVI ports it will most likely NOT work since the signal is digital but needs to be analog. If you have only DVI ports you will need a converter of some sort. Be it a receiver or hdmi to rca converter.

Yes I meant vga port on the graphic card. At least the vga to rca/svideo cable is really cheap on amazon. If it doesn't work at least you won't have wasted a lot of money.
