Default No Sound XP

Hey all, I was doing some work on a hdd out of another pc with my spare pc. After using the machine to reformat the hdd I hooked up the old hdd and restarted and now windows has no sound. When i go to the device manager it shows my on-board and sound blaster card are installed and working properly. But the system tray has no icon, and when you go to control panel sound opt. i cant adjust anything. I says no device available. any ideas?

Look! It's moving. It's alive. It's alive... It's alive, it's moving, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, IT'S ALIVE!

Disable your onboard audio in BIOS, if you want to use the card. The two are fighting against each other.
