You don't mention if you have installed the drivers for this new card? Have you done so?

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

You said you disabled the onboard sound.
If you disabled it in Windows try this,

Turn it off
Turn it on & tap the F2 key
That should get you in to the BIOS setup
Use the down arrow key to hilite Intergrated devices & press Enter
If there is a listing for soun, sound device , or audio change it to Disabled it [set it to off]
Press Esc to exit
Exit saving the changes.

Disabling the onboard sound in Windows won't allow your sound card to work.
[That will simply stop the sound from working in Windows]
The onboard sound has to be disabled in the BIOS.
You can only use 1 sound device at a time & as long as the onboard is enabled in the BIOS your sound card won't work, it will default to the onboard during startup .
