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.

Packard Bell oneTwo L5351

hmmm.. seems had a problem directly on the hardware side of your computer. my only and good recommendations to you is, first, check if your packard bell desktop has or still have a Warranty, if its on warranty, you can go to the service center to check the hardware of your PC. Second, if your computer is Out of Warranty you can check it by your self, open your CPU Drive, clean the dust inside the Hardware then check everything if all the wire's are still INTACT to each other.

Keeps locking every 5 mins

Sounds like it's hibernating. Go into control panel and check the settings. Personally I always turn off the hibernation facility, it's a PITA.

Packard Bell? Those are old, I would guess not many if any of the modern day slots.

Pc won't start

Think your power supply died. Check that out first since they are relatively inexpensive. Or throw in a known working PS to see if that does the trick. Write back with results for further info.

Reinstalling windows on desktop

you will not be able to get the drivers for the packard bell computer, especially for windows XP. the computer was discontinued way before XP came out, as well as the company going out of business. There is a new packard bell company, but based in Europe only. In addition, when you use the HP cd, it will probably say not compatible with non-hp computers.
your best bet is to download you important information and store it on a new unit.
