Default Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Problems

I recently built a computer and everything is working fine except for the sound card. When the computer is turned on, I recieve the alert that new hardware is found. I try to search for drivers by selecting the CD drive with the CD that came with the card, but it says that nothing can be found. When I run the CD to install the card, I get a message stating that there is no Sound Blaster Audigy 2 card plugged in. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is or how I can fix it?

You could also try moving the Audigy card to another slot and try again. Spooky, but it does work sometimes.

I did try both disabling the onboard sound and switching the slot it was in, but I still had no luck. Is tech support my last option?

Does anything show up in the hardware window in Control Panel?

Also, the OS is Windows XP Professional x64 edition. Could this be causing a problem as well?

Does that not need 64 bit drivers?
