Moved soundcard stops working

  1. Hi,

    I recently bought a HP desktop (HP Pavilion Elite d5100t ATX series) and installed a new video card, GeForce 9600 GT to replace the crappy one it came with. In order to install it I had to move my sound card (a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium from HP) to a different PCIe slot. It seemed to still work after the first reboot, but now it does not seem to recognize the sound blaster, but says my sound device is :

    "Realtek HDMI Output
    Realtek High Definition Audio"

    In device manager it says I have "Realtek High Definition Audio"

    Is this the onboard soundcard taking over or something? Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated
