This is because it is the second installation of the same video card. I have the same label on my SB X-FI USB 5.1 card. It's nothing to worry about.

Uninstall the device drivers, then reinstall the drivers. Then see what happens.

Edit: also this may sound very stupid, but once I plugged the speakers into the wrong ports on my soundcard, and got exactly that, although I doubt you just did that..
