You could try removing items from startup. Start > Run > type MSConfig > Startup. Uncheck items you don't want to load. This will make your PC faster. This can also be done with CC Cleaner if you haven't done so already.

Packard bell netbook nav50 battery stopped charging properly. bought a new charger and battery and it still wont charge it up.

LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

You need to UNINSTALL the drivers and not delete them if you had done so on the PC. If this wont help it is possible that the OS must be reinstalled after formatting of the drive and thereby the drivers can be installed.

Packard bell desktop wont boot up properly. packard bell screen shown but cant use the commands like f8 and f2 wont work

Hello JD , It may be an issue with your keyboard not registering before you get into windows. I have a couple recommendations for fixing this problem which are two of the more common issues. The first idea is if you are using both a USB Mouse/Keyboard, consider trying to find a PS2 (The classic/old purple or green circular connections) and hooking that up instead. You could buy a new one, but this isn't a 100% guaranteed fix so if at all possible I'd try and borrow one from a friend who may have old computer parts lying around. They however aren't very expensive and you would only need the Keyboard to complete a reformat. The second idea works for most people but some people may not feel comfortable doing it. It involves opening up the computer. 1) Turn off computer 2) Unplug it 3) Open it up 4)Make sure you ground yourself before touching anything inside it 5) Locate a watch battery thing on the motherboard 6) Pop it out, may need a flat head screwdriver for this, but don't be too forceful 7) If there's a power button on the motherboard, hold it for a few seconds 8) Recommend waiting approximately 5 minutes 9)Put the battery back in where you got it 10) plug the computer back in 11) Power it back up. This is a common fix for a fair amount of people who run into this same issue. I hope that this has helped you and have a great day JD!

Cant use old packard bell speakers

No . The reason that you cannot is that they are amplified type speakers and the amplifier section appears, based upon what you stated, to be in the old monitor.                      Sorry.
