Wear an anti-static wristband, if possible. These are sold at most electronics stores. They provide a conductive path to ground which gets rid of the static charge before it has a chance to zap your precious PC.
If you don't have a wristband, just keep one hand in contact with the bare metal frame of the computer at all times (not a painted or coated surface). If the PC is grounded, touching its frame will ground you as well. To ensure the PC is grounded, make sure it is plugged into a power outlet with a 3-prong plug. You can safely do this AND keep the power to the PC off if there is a rocker switch on the back of the power supply. If not, it's not safe to work on the computer without the cord unplugged, and you should just buy an anti-static band.
As an alternative, buy another 3-prong cord and snip off the flat blades, leaving only the grounding portion of the plug. You may also purchase one of these cords already to go from several catalog outlets.
If the equipment is cold, wait until it has reached room temperature. ESD builds up much faster when it's cold and dry (low humidity). Before you open the PC case
