    I have plugged in a new sound card to my HP Pavilion 500 PC series because I want one sound to card to run with iTunes and the new one to run with another media player.

    I simply opened the case and plugged in the new sound card (Sound Blaster Audigy FX). The new sound card is working but the original one is no longer working.

    Any help to get them both working at the same time?

    Windows, by default, will only use one chipset for all audio.

    Some media players will allow you to select the destination (ie: audio chipset) in their configuration. If either of your media players has that option (in the audio configuration of the media player), then use that player to select the non-default audio chipset.
