Maybe try installing OpenAL.

It might also be as simple as copying OpenAL32.dll to the Systems32 folder.

People disaprove of copying over .dll files you can find all over DLL sites, but it has worked for me several times. Try what Tiv suggests. If that doesn't work, reinstall the game. It should actually install OpenAL itself if it needs it...

You could also try copying the openal32.dll into the game directory.

This is what you want to install: http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/oalinst.zip
