The type of computer is not relevant. This turntable provides output at nominal "line level" and can be connected to your MacBook with a properly shielded audio cable through the audio input.
For best results, you might want to disable automatic-gain-control (AGC) in the "Sound" preferences pane in the "System Preferences" panel, and set the level manually such that the input does not overload.
As I mentioned above, the signal level is nominally "line level", and that can mean very different things depending on context. You might find that using a passive volume control (potentiometer) between the turntable and the computer's analog-to-digital converter can greatly improve the quality of sound.
The internal speaker should be disabled when you plug in external speakers. If not go to Start > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Pick a task.......>Change the speaker settings >Audio tab.
[ Note* An internal speaker can be used for the BIOS Beep Codes. If it is this speaker should not be disabled. BIOS Beep Codes are the way the computer tells you something is wrong, and an area to look into, for it ]
Do you see the sound plugs on back of your pc? If you have those on back of your pc near the keyboard, mouse or video plugs, then you have onboard sound & it should be enabled in your pc's Setup. Look in Device Manager (right click My Computer, select Properties, then hardware) to see if the audio hardware is listed. If so, does it show it's working properly or needs a driver? If it's there and shows to be working properly, look in the Control Panel for the Sounds icon & see if it's been disabled. Make sure your speakers are plugged in the correct plug & are good. If you see the audio plugs in back of your pc & no audio device is listed in Device Manager, the audio might be disabled in your machine's Bios Setup. If it is, then enable it. Windows should install it then next time it starts.
First of all try to disable the onboard sound card. Enter the bios by pressing "del" or F2 during the boot process, navigate to find sound options and disable the onboard audio. Boot the pc normally, go to the device manager and uninstall any audio drivers. Shut down the pc, unplug the power cord and plug-in your new pci audio card. Start the pc and install the drivers for your new audio card.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

It is probably too late to help you, but others might have this problem and we solved the issue by disabling and enabling.
Click on windows button (bottom left hand corner), control panel
- Playback tab
You will find that there are a number of different speaker setups in that area. One set will have the light meter moving, but there won't be sound from your speakers. This is because the modern computer is much more like an amp and has the ability to have different speaker combinations and settings. You only use one speaker set-up.
- double click on a speaker option, advanced tab, and test. If there is no sound, then your speakers aren't connected to that port. Move to the next one.
- Once you find the correct speaker setup for your system, then disable the previous setup and ensure this one is enabled. Once the meter bar lights up for the right speaker combo, all sound will work as expected on your computer.
The modern computer is much like a stereo amp now, and you have to tell it which set to use. (For some reason it works well enough, until you start adding stereo components onto your system.)
Did you plug in the audio cable to the back of the computer? If so, this may have disabled the front audio connections (or vise-versa). Try unplugging the audio cable from the computer (that is connected to the monitor) and see if your headphones work. If so, there is the solution to that problem.
Check the audio connection on the back of the monitor and double check that it is plugged into the correct port on the back of the computer. If the monitor has amplified speakers, it would be a good idea to connect to the 'line-out' connector on your computer. This would avoid disabling your front audio panel.
Lastly, check the volume on your monitor's built in speakers. This monitor can double as an LCD television, so it most likely has a separate volume control (that defaults to 0).
