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).
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.
make sure windows volume control is up. its the speaker next to the time and date ,on tool bar ,bottom left normally.
play a song or video or such. then check the cable in back of monitor it has a plug/connector that looks like a headphone jack /plug follow it to the back of computer its color coded. be certain the speakers have power if needed they will plug into monitor dc jack if the speakers are removable. and check the vol control on the speakers.
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
