Default Video Card Shortage

I had my computer on and on the side of my vid card with all the pins tried to place a water cooler heat sink in it. I think i shorted it out.
it turns on and nothing on the screen. I got to fix this!!
I tried the CMOS.

Wait, so let me get this straight.

You tried to put a water block on your video card with the PC ON?!

Oh dear.

I can't believe you fried it with your rig on!

Newegg.com - POWERCOLOR AX4850 512MD3-DH Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

And next time turn off your rig before you use a water block!!
