Okie so I have just added a Radeon HD 4870 to my system. I have a sound blaster X-FI PCI card on there.

this card worked fine but now Windows 7 wont acknowledge it is even attached to my pc.

I have a:
P5W DH Deluxe ASUS Digital Home Series Mobo.

I'm thinking some how at boot the audio properties that are part of this gfx card are stopping the X-FI card from working. Its most frustrating as I don't really want to try and revert to the Mobo's on board sound.

Anyone come across this problem before?

Nope not in device manager at all. Whereas before I put the Radeon 4870 in it did for 3 years and 3 OS installs.

Looks like thats exactly what the HDMI audio device is doing :(

It's not...

Tried clearing your CMOS or doing Reset Configuration Data (ESCD)? Also sure if the card is still working?
