Default Sound card problems, please help!

I just installed my first liquid cooling system (huge success by the way) and moved my sound card from the very bottom PCI slot to the next one up. Suddenly my computer doesn't recognize the sound card and can't find it! Do I need to change it somewhere in my system, telling the computer that I changed PCI slots? or do I need a new sound card? Please help!!!

Are you sure its seated properly? If you put it back to where it was, will it work?

See, that's the problem, I can't put it back in the PCI slot it used to be in because I've got my tubing running in through the bottom ports.
