Default Video card burning??

Hey guys! I was just playing COD6 and then... BOOM! my screen went down and I couldn't restart it. And then I smell a really weird smell, like if some plastic was burning... And I thought my screen burnt or my video card burnt...

But here is the catch: the Acer I have won't power-up, but when I attach it to another power cord, it can!!!

I also have another Dell monitor and when I plug it to my video card, everything is fine (my system is booting, can get to the desktop without an hitch)... That's why I don't think it's my video card... Because anyway it is not that old (GTX 260).

I can't explain the monitor mystery though... Canit be the power cord?!?
