If you know the value to bind combobox which seems to be your key to find other details of the row, why can't you bring all other columns from database? Isn't it a very simple SELECT statement.
Share what have you tried so far or the relevant code so that we can understand the problem correctly.

@Suvendu , thanks , but I know how to display all the data in the datagridview using SELECT statement .So question is how can I fill the row in the datagridview keeping the value of first cell freeze and fill remaining cells with data returned from query.
i am using simple fill method to do it , but it is not working.

Always use  Reply   button to post comments/query to the concerned user, so that the user gets notified and respond to your text.

var ComboBoxValue = ((Combobox)GridView1.Row.FindControl("Combobox1")).selectedValue();

If your comboBox is populated for example, with the column 'Name' then you have to write the required ADO.Net in order to gain access into the database and make the appropriate changes.

using System.Data;
using System.Data.sqlClient;

DataTable table = new DataTable();

using(sqlConnection connection = new sqlConnection(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["preffered Connection string"].ConnectionString.toString()))
    using(sqlCommand cmd = new sqlCommand(String.Format(@"Insert into tbl_Clients("+ "LASTNAME" + "," + "PHONE" + "," + "CELLPHONE" + ")         Values('{0}','{1}','{2}','{3}') Where Name ={4}",value1,value2,value3,value4,ComboBoxValue.toString()),connection)){
         using(sqlAdapter adapter = new sqlAdapter(cmd) ){
 GridView1.Datasource = table;

If you would like to populate a single Row then you have to be specific about it and specify the required Row and cell in order to do so.
OnSelectedIndexChanged(object Sender,EventArgs e){
   var DataRow = e.Row

This is an event of GridView of which the EventArgs variable might give you the specified Row that the changes are taking place.

Hope this helps!!
Best Regards

Also, you have a syntax error in your INSERT statement.

And an INSERT statement doesn't return any rows, so you can't use a SqlDataAdapter to load the results. You should be using ExecuteNonQuery instead.

And your code won't compile, because C# is case-sensitive.
