Moving the computer doesn't have anything to do with the sound. But connecting/disconnecting the devices may cause Windows to "hiccup" when trying to recognize everything.
Onboard sound devices are particularly finicky. Try removing all the sound drivers using both the Add/Remove programs and the Device Manager. Then uninstall the sound card from Device Manager.
When you reboot, don't let it get into Windows - go into the BIOS and disable the onboard sound. Then boot into Windows and root around trying to get rid of any remaining vestiges of the sound card (such as the hidden devices in Device Manager).
Then reboot, re-enable the sound card, and let Windows detect and install it. Have the drivers handy (on a CD) so that you insert them if needed.
Hopefully all of this will enable the sound to be restored.
