Could one be an onboard sound card (on your motheboard). And the other could be the pci one? There should be place in the BIOS to disable onboard sound cards, just look around for it. If not, and your pc is an older one, it might be on the motherboard with a jumper to turn it on or off.

Did your new card come with an instalation cd? I would suggest running any drivers that came on that, or looking for new drivers on the internet. What brand and model is your card?
