Alright thanks for the help. At one point i could see the card under sounds in my device manager stating that resources were missing and that i'd have to disable some other device for this one to work. One last thing that i want to clarify; Apart from my graphics card, there's no other card installed on my board at all (not including the sound card). Is the on board sound card using resources even after i disabled it through bios? Or is it just my mobo messing around?
Disabling onboard devices in the BIOS may not necessarily free up resources. It all depends on if the BIOS' resource assignment routines were written and tested properly by the motherboard designer/manufacturer's BIOS modifier.
Make sure you have the latest motherboard BIOS revision installed.
