PCI sound card not working after installing PCI wireless card

My sound card doesn't work if I put in a PCI wireless card. I tried changing my Bios settings to let the OS configure PCI and still doesn't work. If I remove the PCI wireless card, my sound card operates like normal.

  1. A bad pci slot? Wither either card work in both slots?
  2. I have multiple PCI slots. The sound card stays at the same spot but when I put in my wireless pci card to occupy another PCI slot, my sound card stops working.
  3. Funny enough, I had the same problem in the past... what are makes and models of your sound card, wireless card and the mainboard?

    Rocketfish 5.1 sound card
    Linksys wireless card
    Asus m4a88td-v Evo extreme 3? forgot
  5. Rocketfish... alright, don't know that brand, gotta LIU real quick :)

    So, sound card is healthy, as far as I understand? First try out ONLY WLAN card in the same slot where sound card is sitting now. If it works fine alone, try whatever card is less valuable/is on warranty out in different PCI slots (IME, bad PCI slot can mess up a card).

    Are both cards recognized in Device Manager? Drivers installed?
