Alienware X51 sound problem

I bought my X51 last year and then upgraded the OS to windows 8 by myself.

I updated the bios and drivers accordingly , the audio worked fine at first BUT when I bought a new Sony TV monitor (KDL-22EX520) recently and started hooking it up to the computer using HDMI cable instead of DVI cable + audio cable, the sound would cut out randomly. For example, I play a song in Itunes and pause it for a minute, I replay again and then NO SOUND!!! Each time I have to log out and log in again to get the sound back and it is really annoying.

Is it a driver problem or anything related to the graphics card GTX555? Please help.
