Well I know about ESD but I was wearing a static wristband grounded to my computer. I can still get ESD wearing that?

What was the computer grounded to? Were you standing on carpet while wearing socks? What were you wearing? Synthetic clothing materials are famous for generating ESD buildups. That's why they are banned in my lab at work.

I could go on... There are so many sources it gets a little silly after a while.

Yea sorry guys if I'm sounding like an A## but I'm just really frustrated right now so I'm sorry for being upset. The computer was on a wooden desk in a carpeted room and I was wearing a cotton t shirt jeans and shoes.

Call the RAM tech support and tell them it is not registering. Have them walk you through troubleshooting it, making sure to mention the wristband and other precautions you are taking. Do not mention suspicions about frying the RAM. Let them help you determine it. If it still won't work they will probably RMA it.

Does anyone have any constructive suggestions to help him determine this with certainty?

Will my computer have just a black screen because of that? Because my board has 256mb of built in RAM...

Yeah, Greg is right. In this case with tech support, ignorance might be bliss.
