Windows 7: Windows 7 missing Realtek's 'Speaker' after transporting PC

Windows 7 missing Realtek's 'Speaker' after transporting PC

I transported my PC from The Netherlands to Argentina in a suitcase.
When I arrived I noticed that the processor's cooler was loose but so far the computer was in one piece.
In order to place the cooler again and protecting the mobo I had to take apart the mobo.
When I try my pc everything was working but suddenly I noticed that Windows 7 doesn't detect anymore the "Speaker" interface, only the Realtek Digital Output.
Did I forget some cable to plug (don't think so)? lose cooler damaged mobo?
It is a Gigabyte EP-45 UD3, It's a self-assembled pc.
Already tried latest drivers and erasing it and re-detecting it in the device manager.

Have you tried reinstalling the RealTek drivers?

Anything is possible with the loose cooler but I doubt that it damages the sound chip since you have the RealTek Digital.
