Computers do NOT detect speakers. Computers detect sound cards, which is the device that speakers plug in to but they are not aware of whether you are plugging in headphones, an amplifier or speakers.
The most common problems here are:
A: Your speakers are not plugged into the proper hole on the sound card. (most are color coded, make sure your cables jack color matches the color of the hole you are inserting it in.)
B: Your sound card is not installed properly. (This requires more info to resolve)
C: You volume is muted. (Instructions below)
D: Your speakers require power and are not plugged in or turned on. (Have you used these speakers before? Do they require power, is the power on?)
Go to your Control Panel under Sound and check your settings, make sure that your volume is NOT muted and that you have some sort of sound card showing.
If that does not help then please send me that Make/Model of the Computer you are using and Operating System (XP, Vista, etc) so that I may give you a specific answer with simpler instructions.

My computer is a SyncMasterP2570HD i cant get any sound to come out but it is detecting sound how do i fix it


The Samsung SyncMaster P2570hd is a monitor with speakers; it isn't the computer itself. I'll assume that you are dealing with a computer connected to the monitor and not a set-top box. Make sure that Mute is not enabled on the computer. There should be an icon on the lower right hand side of a Windows desktop. If the mute is enabled, it will have a red circle with a diagonal line through it. Left click on the icon to remove the mute (change the volume or click on the mute icon). Test the monitor's speakers by connecting it to another device with known good audio output.

Next how are you connecting the monitor to the computer (VGA, DVI or HDMI)? If you are using VGA or DVI (including DVI to HDMI), you need to connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the speaker (green port on the back of a sound card) or headphone jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor. The audio input jack is between the DVI and VGA ports. You can test the output of the speaker jack on the computer with regular computer speakers. Plug in the power cord (or USB cable) for powered speakers. If the free-standing speakers work, check the volume setting on the monitor with the +/- buttons to the right of the menu button. Do not press menu first, though. If that doesn't solve the problem, continue using the separate speakers. (Unless the monitor is still under warranty, it usually isn't worth taking apart a monitor to replace the speakers. You may be able find replacement parts online.)

If you are using an HDMI cable, check the output audio setting to see if the HDMI audio is available. For Windows, click on Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound (Windows 7). Then click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. In the Playback tab, check what available audio devices you have. Make the HDMI the default device by right-clicking on it and selecting Make this the default device. (Other versions of Windows will a slightly different route to this panel.) You may need to restart the computer to get the audio signal on the HDMI cable after setting this. Note: not all video cards/computers support HDMI audio. If you don't see HDMI listed in the Playback devices, connect an audio patch cable as with a VGA or DVI cable, described above. Use stand-alone speakers if the monitor's speakers are bad.

I hope this helps.

(I have had the speakers fail in monitors; <$30 separate speakers are an adequate replacement for those built into a flat panel monitor.)

External speaker do not work


Follow these steps: Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Manage Audio Devices under the Playback tab, select "Speakers" or any playback device listed. double click the device or click Properties. Go to Levels tab. Under the "Speakers" and "PC Speaker" area, adjust the volume level to its maximum. Then apply changes.
If the above instructions wont work, try this out:
Check if your speaker is detected when you plug it in.
If it isn't detected then either your sound drive has a problem/missing or maybe somethings wrong with your computer's headphone/speaker jack.
If detected, set it as your default device.

Hope it helped! :)
