    Either faulty soundcard (hardware)
    Or compatability issue with your hardware and the sound card.

    Just get another (different) PCI sound card

    did you turn OFF any onboard audio in your BIOS (if applicable)?

    Did you install the drivers?

    If both do not apply, your card is bad or incompatible.
