How have you wired the 2 cards to your one cable cable?
The direct cable signal is usually not able to drive 2 receivers.

Do you have error messages in /var/log/syslog?

- Use the new card "in place" of the old to make sure that this 
  new card is not DOA

- Place the new card (alone) into the intended slot.

- use different slots
 
- Use the old card as second board


- Remove all hardware not required

- Tell the BIOS to reassign the  PCI resourses

Are those interrupt shared?
