Our expert says:
You can't get electrocuted (i.e. killed by electric shock) by static electricity, under common circumstances, with one exception: getting struck by lightning, which is a form of static electricity, or static discharge. An electric shock from static electricty is usually mild, although it does happen more often to some people, and some experience it as a larger, and more unpleasant shock than it is for most people. However, what you describe sounds like a much greater shock than is normally associated with static electricity. Does this only - or mainlly -
happen when you are in your home? If so you should have an electrician check it out, and definitely have your PC seen to.
