Answers :

Move the sound card to another pci slot on your computer. Open up your pc and where the sound is move it one slot over. First, NO power on!!! Than move it. when you start your pc it will display a message (new hardware found) at that point you can reinstall the driver software for the sound card and the M controller will install as well.
