If you think it's a software problem, head over to the alienware website, and download the audio drivers.

If the drivers are up to date, you want to go to Control Panel>Sound and make sure that the active device shows the name of your soundcard. For instance, my sound card is a Sound Blaster Recon3Di so it shows:

Sound Blaster Recon3Di
Default Device
