What is the easiest, cheapest and best way to connect my home PC (Dell Inspiron 530S/ Windows Vista Basic) which looks like it only has the VGA and USB ports to my Emerson 32" HDTV which only has the Y Pb Pr , S-Video and RCA? Is it even possible?

Your TV has what they call component inputs which are generally red blue and green. Your PC only outputs VGA (USB ports are not used for video). You will need a VGA to component converter. Depending on the quality you are looking for the prices can range from $6 up to $18 or more. Here are a couple of them:
For $7: http://www.amazon.com/eForCity-POTHVGARGBX2-Premium-Component-Cable/dp/B000P3Q0YW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1381519141&sr=8-1&keywords=VGA+to+component

For $18: http://www.amazon.com/Lenkeng-104724-Monoprice-VGA-RCA/dp/B001CJOLBW/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1381519141&sr=8-5&keywords=VGA+to+component

Testimonial: "My Tv does not have the Red, Blue, Green component. It only has Y, Pb, Pr and S-video, RCA (yellow, white, red) And from what I understand the VGA signal on my computer can't be translated into any of the ones my T.V. has. Basically I need to know if there is any way to go from VGA to the ones I've listed that my T.V. has."

SOURCE: How to play movies from computer on tv?

if your tv has vga in, then you need a vga to vga cable (like a screen wire) then change the resolution in the settings of windows (put 800X640 resolution before you plug tv so that you can know what is supported)

if it doesent then you cant do anything other than buying a video card with hdmi or dvi (with a dvi to hdmi) with a hdmi cable then plug it in (will auto detect)

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron 530S beeps three times when

Beeps during startup/POST means you have a hardware failure that is stoping the computer from starting up normal. 3 beeps means you have faulty RAM. You could trying removing a stick if u have more then 1 installed, however replacement is ideal. RAM is highly inexpensive and is a DIY project that would take less than 10 minutes to complete. However if your computer is under warranty I suggest calling dell and letting them deal with it.
Here is link to beep codes for future reference
Let me know if you need instructions on to swap out RAM, I would gladly assist, please rate
