Computer speakers plugged in monitor, put sound is not playing.?

So I have a HP computer plugged into a Samsung monitor. Also plugged into this monitor is an Xbox, and Logitech computer speakers (As my monitor has none built in). When I play my Xbox the speakers are working fine, but my computer doesn't seem to recognise that they are there, so does not play sound through them. What can I do to make my PC recognise the speakers are there, and to make them use them while still having the speakers plugged in the monitor. Thanks.

    If the monitor is plugged in to the computer only through the VGA port then there's your answer. You still need to connect an audio cable with a 3.5mm headphone jack on one end and two RCA jacks on the other end. Go to amazon or ebay for prices. Here's a sample picture of what it looks like:

    Your pc soundcard isn't connected to the monitor, only the video output. You'll need a dual 3.5mm jack and a male to male 3.5mm cable from the green port on your pc to the jack. Plug the xbox into the jack too, then into the monitor.

    Ordenadores para trabajar o para jugar, simples o muy avanzados, siempre a los mejores precios en los sitios web, mi viejo ordenador, también comprado en los sitios web me gustaba mucho pero necesitaba algo más eficiente y más silencioso, el ordenador que compre cumple todas mis expectativas, además de ser muy rápido, con una buena capacidad de almacenaje, es increíblemente silencioso, lo he probado por la noche, en un silencio total y ni no parecía que estaba funcionando, una excelente compra.
