I recently bought a monitor at an estate for $10, never opened and I have one of those roku boxes that has hdmi and RCA(Red,White,Yellow) and the monitor only has DVI and VGA, so I bought a hdmi to dvi adapter and I get picture but no sound!

What do I need to get picture and sound wroking?

What type of audio input does the monitor have? Only through the HDMI, or is there a 3.5mm jack somewhere?

So the monitor has speakers, and a 3.5mm audio input.
That would seem to suggest an RCA -> 3.5mm adapter cable.

RadioShack, Walmart, probably your local Dollar Store has one similar.
(assuming you are in the US)
