Have you opened case to make sure all connections are secure? Something may have come loose while you were transporting it. Give us more info about your computer (e.g. make and model, cpu, ram, name of psu, etc.)

The most common cause of this when you have moved a PC is that the weight of the Heatsink / fan combination in combination with the adhesive effect of thermal tape or dried paste caused them to tug on the processor when you hit a bump and it is no longer securly seated in the socket.

Some times just pressing down on them gently will solve the problem; but more often you need to remove the heatsink/ fan combination and then raise the zero insertion force lock down lever on the CPU socket, gently press the CPU back in place and lock it down , apply fresh thermal paste if needed and resecure the fan.

Of course as noted, it could be a problem with one of the main power cables coming loose or even the switch to motherboard cable.
