More then likely the compressor is locked up. Remove the belt and see if you can turn the pulley for the compressor. If this is the case then you will need to change not only the compressor but the condenser and receiver dryer as well. Any metal that left the compressor is now in these components and that will damage the new compressor.

Let me know if this the case and we can go from there.
