Have you loaded the Drivers for the new card there will be a setup file on the CD, if you are Win9 look for the folder on the CD if XP or any other look for the driver folder

smjl, had the same problem a couple of months back with a friends computer. It turned out that the motherboard didn't like the sound card being in a certain slot so try moving it to another PCI slot.

You should run the CD that's what they put it in for

Does windows detect the new card?

Remove the old on board sound from Device manager too.
