Monitor not showing picture after new gfx card

I borowed my friends graphics card because mine was broken.
I tryed to put the card in with the power on the pc ON, after that my pc rebooted all of a sudden,
and when i connected the card and the monitor, the monitir is not showing anything, and the inside of my PC smells like
burned plastic, I removed the card and its still not working. The card is OK i think, it doesn't smell wierd of anything.
I tryed removing the power cable for a minute and its still not working.
HELP!!!

Installing (and removing) cards or any parts with the power on can result in many potential failures including motherboard, the card that was removed or inserted, the power supply.

You should have a qualified computer technician check it out to see what was damaged.

The card was inserted, but i have already inserted the same card 2 times before and it worked just fine.

Any time you remove or insert items with the power on there is the potential to cause failures, burned components. You may get away with doing it but its never good to do it.

Does swapping the RAM help?

Who knows? You have to find out what is wrong, just swapping parts is not the answer.
