Sony says the operating systems listed on the box -- the ones out at the time you bought the software -- are the only ones supported:
-That- said, some people apparently have gotten Acid 6 working.
You have Acid 5. It won't hurt to check and update some other things, whether you're able to run Acid or not. (And if your computer is strong enough, you may be able to run XP in a virtual machine, but that's a whole 'nother story.)
First, click your volume control -- likely in the bottom-right corner, or through Start: Control panels, and ensure your "line in" level is set high and the mute is not off. Yeah, you probably did this. Please quadruple check.
Try Start: Control Panels: System: Device Manager. See if you have any little warning signs or Xs next to any of your devices.
You can also look in the audio device section and see what your sound card is. (A Dell made one day may have completely different guts than a Dell of the same model made a few weeks earlier.) You can take that information and download a new driver from the company, which will have more updated drivers than Dell.
Last, make sure you've installed the latest updates to Acid 5. It won't hurt, and might make a difference. Doubt it, but it might. And if you go the virtual machine route, you may benefit there from the marginal improvements:
