    What started to smoke exactly? You'll need to give a lot more info if we're going to work out what's gone wrong.

    Whatever started to smoke is destroyed. Since it was memory you installed then like the memory is burnt, and possibly the motherboard as well.

    You probably need a new motherboard, and the piece of memory you tried to installed will need to be replaced too.
