    So i connected it through HDMI. There's no audio, which cable do i need to make it work? It has an "Audio In" port, which cable do i need to use that port?

    Use a standard 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable. Go from your headphone jack on your MacBook to the audio input on the monitor.

    Shouldn't be. MacBook - audio out (headphone) | Monitor - audio in (I don't think it has audio out). You might check volume and mute on your MacBook and then their may be a setting on the monitor for audio since it has built-in speakers.

    The volume for the monitor is set to 100 already. Restarted a couple times. Tried to unplug and plug. Still nothing. :(

    I know for sure it's not the monitor since it was used for a PS3 before.

    Try listening to youtube or iTunes through headphones connected to the laptop, to make sure that there is nothing wrong with the headphone port
