Have you tried going into the bios and telling it to reset the escd values?

Sounds like the new graphics card has a irq issue with the audio.

Also if you have a integrated graphics card I would disable it while I was in the bios.

Check if your cable is connected well.

That occurred to me as well but it wouldn't explain the device working properly when the graphics card was removed.

oooh that's right the 240 has hdmi doesn't it... DER...

Okay you need to go into control panel -> sound, and set the built in sound device as the default.

The hdmi audio driver on the graphics card is over riding it. You can also click on the hdmi audio device click properties and use the drop down to disable it. (I would personally do both)

That should prevent the conflict.
