Question about Computers & Internet
You never plug anything into the expansion slot whilr the computer is turned on and running. This is a sure way of damaging the motherboard.
Turn off the computer and remove the wireless adapter and then boot up your computer, if it still does not boot up then the motherboard most likely been damaged.
I suggest you take it to a computer repair shop to assess the damage and give you a repair quote.
