Not sure I understand. Try rephrasing that.

Firstly, try to keep your arms touching the case whenever you're
holding components. Very sharp case edges can be painful but they
are good for grounding you [kidding].

Remove everything except what you need to get into the BIOS. This is
not easy, but it is easier than total failure. Things you need
installed.
.... CPU and fan (always make sure the CPU fan is running,
always)
.... one stick of memory
.... video card

Thats because you're stupid. The OP is describing the BIOS error beep
code.
