    Turn off your system, move the soundcard to another PCI slot & boot the machine up. It'll detect the sound card again & if you're lucky, it'll use the installed drivers otherwise you'll have to reinstall them.

    Maybe you could fill your system specs in your profile. With more information about your system, it'll be easier for us to offer probable solutions.

    Since you are unsure if the the PCI is no good, try to install your soundcard in another pc. If it works, then there's a big chance there's something wrong with the PCI slot.
