Windows doesn't detect my speakers? Detects headsets/headphones

So, for some reason my speakers; Bose Companion 2 Series II speakers that I got a while ago aren't detecting on my computer. The speakers work, plays audio through my laptop and my phone, but not through my desktop. Tried to play it through the headphone jack on my monitor (which works) and it didn't play either.
