Have you gone here and downloaded the correct drivers for your card: Creative Support.

There is a driver available that may help your system recognize the card in Win 7.

If the new drivers do not work, I would also try disabling the onboard sound if there is any. I know it's a longshot, but I have seen stuff like this happen befre in W7, and that is what fixed it.
