Hello, i recently built a computer, and i use my monitor which has inbuilt speakers as my speakers.

Monitor: Asus MX239H, this is the ports available: http://www.asus.com/websites/global/products/zZRAvMwYQk...

I also recently purchased the Razer Kraken Pro Headset with microphone as i needed a microphone. However if i plug the headset and microphone cables on to my case, the sound is not being played by my headset, instead it is still coming from monitor speakers, to solve this i plugged the headphone wire into the back of the mx239h, however there is no port for microphone in the back of the mx239h.

Please help me what do i do! thanks!

If you look on the back of your PC, you should see pink/red socket for microphone and green for headset.

Normally though, your case should have front/top mounted sockets that should override the normal audio output.

Did you wire the internal case cable for those sockets to the motherboard.

If you did, and you also installed the audio drivers, then if you right-click speaker icon in system tray, you can set default input/output source for speakers or headset.
