Seriously, these are myth. To be true the shock have to be a bit big so you can feel it. these day component are made good enough ( if you have good component ) to resist to esd. It can happen but it's like to have a DOA CPU, rare...really rare, kind of thing you see 1 time in a life.

Ask for more.

The shock does NOT have to be enough to feel (or hear) it. I believe you can kill something with static with 1/3 of the discharge needed to feel it. You could have just done something wrong installing it. Is the fan spinning? Is anything beeping/flashing?

if fan is spinning but no video a lot of the time your power supply is not giving enough power on the 12v rail so no picture this is just a guess. becasue your not telling us what the problem are so far?
