I added an additional 4 GB of RAM to my Brand New Acer Aspire 5 and have a black screen. The battery charge indicator light show bright blue as does the power on light. I DID NOT compensate for static discharge while adding the RAM Stick. Am I doomed??

Did you check if your new ram stick has the same spec as the old one? They must be the same; capacity doesn’t have to be the same.

Try removing the stick and see if it boots.
If it does, and the specs are the same, try reinserting the new one.

Some of my PCs always get a black screen the first time after a ram upgrade. If I turn it off then turn it back on it usually boots.
