Acer Aspire 7520g dead after new GPU

Hello guys :pray:

I just recently bought Ati Mobility Radeon HD 3650 to replace my old broken Geforce 8600M GS. The card is compatible with my laptop, which is using Vista Premium 32bit.

Installation of the card went just fine and nice until problems began. I booted my laptop and saw the usual Acer logo. After that came black screen where it said something about hardware changes and that windows cannot boot.

I chose to let windows repair problems (stupid me) instead of picking normal boot. Then there was nothing. Black screen. I rebooted but now it wont even let me into BIOS. Same with desktop display, it just gives me -no display-

What the hell did just happen? Why did Vista kill my new Radeon?

I have tried these things:

* Try broken 8600M GS, works fine in safe mode via using desktop display (laptop display full of graphical bugs, can't do anything but otherwise windows boots fine etc.)
* Removing old nvidia drivers using driver sweeper
* Update BIOS succesfully (1.08-1.33)
* Made sure many times that the card is succesfully placed in.

Because I can't even access BIOS there isn't much I can do.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I'm really clueless and frustrated right now :sigh:
