Hello
I installed my wifi card today that came with my gigabyte sniper 3 mobo to connect my wifi xoom tablet. The tablet is asking for password and there was no password setup option when I installed the cards drivers.
I can't figure out how to access the card to set a password.
Please help.

You are trying to connect a table to a PC via wireless without using a router ?

You are in for a lot of work. You either need to set your PC to run as a AP (ie pretend it is a router) or run in what is called ad-hoc mode. Many tablets are a huge pain to get to run in ad-hoc mode.

I am going to suspect you have a wireless router already so you are best off connecting to that and access the pc via its ip address.

I thought the wifi / Bluetooth card that came with the mobo was all I needed.
The tablet detects the signal I just don't know the password or how to make one in win 7

bluetooth you might get to work but it is not done with a password so I have no clue what you are looking at. WiFi the PC does not transmit anything it like your tablet tries to find a router.

What you want to do is actually fairly advanced. There are instructions on how to make a ad-hoc network on microsofts site that you need to go and read if you want to do that.
