Monitor is plugged in properly to the back of the computer, and yet the speakers built in the monitor are not working. The computer doesn't even recognize it as speakers. The computer says there is no audio system plugged in.
Do you have a Sound Card installed in your computer, if not. Buy one at any local pars store. Now, if you have one installed. Then you must update your drivers or you are plugging your cable to a wrong output. Use the light green 1/8" connection.

If it has built-in speakers then it will have on screen volume control, that is how you can tell if it has built-in speakers, I cannot find any info on this VN205N. You are better off using power speakers anyway with much better sound than the the monitor built-in speakers.
If your monitor has built in speakers then there should be a small jack in the back, usually green in color. You would need to run an audio cable from the monitor to the proper jack on the back of your computer, usually the green color like on the monitor. Once connected you should be able to use the volume button on the monitor to adjust to your preference. But remember external speakers are usually a higher quality than those built in to the monitor. Hope this helps.
this may be a second post since it appears that fixya didn't take the first one:
you should have a speaker cable in addtion to the monitor cable (big thick cable) coming from the monitor. the speaker cable (much thinner with similar plug as free standing speakers) needs to be plugged into the sound output jack on the back of your computer (jack is possibly colored green).
Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.
I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.
If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.
Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.
Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.
If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.
For your monitor with built in speakers, there should be a cable usually the plug is green in color, coming from the monitor which needs to be plugged to the back of the computer for the speakers to work. If you don't see a cable, then there is a plug on the monitor where a cable would go.
Yes you can connect external speakers. They plug into the back of the computer. There are usually round ports on the back colored blue, pink, and green. Figure: http://www.ultimatepcrepair.com/files/bsound.jpg (sometimes there is more, depending on your computer) The speaker cable plugs into the Green color one.
you need to ensure that the speaker lne cable is connected, this should be a double ended 3.5 jack plug cable, one end plugs into the back of the monitor, the other goes into your speaker port on the motherboard of your computer, sometimes there is a power cable required too
