First things first: "work" in giving this away has dodged the "responsible disposal" bullet. Drivers for this unit are probably limited to windows 98 or earlier, as the last Packard-Bell was produced in that era. Drivers for sound in particular were Packard-Bell only, and since they aren't around any more unless you can get your hands on the original installation CD you're out of luck to make the existing soundcard work. You do howrever have the option to install a newer soundcard, that should fix that issue. As for the shutting down, make sure the heatsink has good thermal contact with the processor as it sounds like the processor may be overheating. If there's a fan make sure it is running.
You've got a challenge if you want to see it all work, have fun.
if you are replaceing a hard drive all you will need to do is make sure you match it up to IDE ATA133 or SATA type connections. otherwise the hard drive info should be printed on the top of the old drive.
Green is for audio. Make sure you have the proper audio drivers. Check the device manager ofr yellow exclamation points. If so you should do a "Windows Update" if it doesn't have updated drivers for your machine try using google to find Packard Bell's support web page.
