As the title says the control panel says the speakers are unplugged but that's not the case. I have built in speakers with my monitor so how it can be unplugged I have no idea. I just recently put this pc together and updated the drivers from the motherboard disc that came with it. If there's some cable I forget to run from the monitor to the case then, well, I'm just foolish but I don't think that's the case (this time). Here are my specs:

Asus P8P67 Rev 3.0 mb with Realtek ALC892 integrated sound card.

Asus VH242H 23.6"

Not an ideal sound setup but that can be upgraded later. I'm just looking to get what I have now working.
 
You may have speakers built into the monitor, but you still need a cable from the front line out jack (the light green one) to the monitor speaker in jack. You need a 1/8" stereo jack to 1/"8 stereo jack cable. One should have come with your monitor. Otherwise, the cable is about $5 at your local Rat Shack.
