290x Lightning not detected by motherboard

Hi, so I had just upgraded to a MSI 290x Lightning. I bought it used from my cousin who had used it for about a year and half with no issues. I upgraded from a r9 380. I did know that this card is on the hotter end and I have been able to keep the Gpu under 75 Celsius and even lower during games. Though, today I when I left for five minutes there was no signal on my monitor. so I restarted my pc hoping it would work( It didn't). So I opened up my pc trying to take the gpu out and putting it back in (didn't work). But I was able to go on my pc through my mobo and I was able to restart my pc and go into the bios to see if my gpu was detected. It wasn't so I open up my pc again and tried doing the same thing with the gpu but I noticed this time that my gpu didn't stay in. The side opposite of the lever that clicks in does NOT stay in when clicked. And ever since I'm getting no signal from my monitor, but from my gpu my monitor goes into power save mode. Any thoughts? (Sorry this is long)

* I think my motherboard is dead but I don't have this much knowledge of pc's myself.

  1. Power supply does not meet MSI recommended power rating. See Specifications for more details:

    r9 380 only needed 550 watt or greater PSU.

    Well, shouldn't the 650 be fine for now? I'm not overclocking or doing any changes with it, It's just there temporary till I upgrade towards overclocking and wanting to make any changes to it. Plus when I also plugged the HDMI cord into the motherboard nothing came up on the monitor also.
