I did a pretty bad mistake and put a wlan card wrong way around. It was Anatel WN5301A. I put it in the right slot (PCI) I managed to put it wrong way around. My PC booted for 1 second and then shut down. It usually means that something shorted and PSU turned itself off. I tried to boot it for 2-3 times until I removed the wlan card. Now It boots and I dont get any display. I tried onboard graphics, 2 other graphics cards but nothing. Tried reseating RAM. Fans, hard drive leds etc. work so its getting power. The cables were fine. Should I replace my motherboard? Could it have damaged my other hardware?
My motherboard is Asus M5A78L-M LX3
Power supply: Cooler Master GX 750W

I don't think your motherboard is broken if it boots. Try testing all your connections, ex. your monitor connection. Hopefully you had the computer unplugged and off when you were doing this hardware install..

With the booting I meant that fans and led and all get powered. But it doesnt boot since it isnt giving anything on the screen. I also told that the cables were fine.

I'm not exactly sure how you managed to put it in the wrong way.

I would remove/unplug the CD/DVD drives, hard drive, graphics cards and anything else except the RAM and PSU from the motherboard. Then try to boot. Try getting to the BIOS. You may need to reset the CMOS.
