    I really doubt you fried the whole board unless you were installing the card with the power on or with the power switch on on the power supply...good idea to turn it off or completely unplug it when installing and removing cards. If it only boots to safe mode then there is still an issue with the drivers. While in Safe mode uninstall any of the applications that were installed when attempting to install the new card. After that go into device manager and delete all references to the current or old video card under display adapters. Reboot and it should load Windows and ask you for the drivers for your old card when it detects it again.
