    Attempeted to install Airpace Wi-Fi Lan card and pushed card in and did not make correct slot,heard a small electrical noise,smelled small burnt smell. LIke a dope I did nort unplug power cord. Tried to to intstall in another slot correctly,system would not power up. When Airpace was removed system would restart. I suspect the PCI slots are shorted/disabled,if thats possible. How to correct?

    You'll need to buy a new board. There's no fixing. Your power supply may need to be replaced, too. One or both of them is probably dead.
