Certainly the battery can be replaced and if you are confident you should be able to find a helpful YouTube video.
If you aren't feeling confident your local phone doctor will be pleased to oblige.

not as good as real CLASS A amps of any kind.
the primary winding on the power transformer AC
may be tapped,
some transformer will run in 3 countries or more and switch or jumper to set , your countries voltage, 100, 120 or 250vac.
Iv'e repaired things like that back to 1965 and Ham gear too.
The primary must be wired correctly and 3 wire plugs best.

all I found is this,

PB is owned by as is gateway name (old)
PB did not make it that means did not/.
who made it is hard to track but is covered in the PB wifi
who did that, first ones sold in Penny's stores then now.
seems like same maker (in Europe) sells them in walfart now. do not buy this junk buy real PCs. ok
buy dell or hp.
then real support happens.

this:"? M3350

aio-sogrcu5w2ewb4tpvckapjvgs-5-0.jpg connect powered speakers to jack 6 line out.
green jack on most. is that. green means out.
tell helper what sound device you have,
1 common answer is I have some powered speakers. called xyz
then if dead. we make sure speakers work on PC #2 not this PC.
then we check w10 device manager for sound driver errors.
if yes, and I bet yes, due to 8 year age of this beast.
then finding w10 drivers can be hard.
the PC has tag. (sticker label)
this tag is the service tag and all numbers on it matter.
models /p/n and all.
this tells the helper what is inside and what drivers work.
The PC has sound chip that may or may not have windows 10 drivers. in most cases for sound they must come from PB
the sound chip is deeply in-meshed with the HDMI is why.

if the PC is not internet connected why expect w10 PnP to find the drivers, by MS automatic means. answer it can not.

It is normal that Windows reports programs as not responding when it try to close the computer. If all program is reported as not responding and the computer do not close at all, then it sounds like a serious problem. I would reinstall my Windows even though it is boring.

in what country ,we are USA
no PB in USA

Packard Bell... | Answered on Jul 14, 2019

we have no PB PCs in USA (not since PB went bankrupt 1999 )
nor did you even tell what kind of account it is,of 1billion on earth.
no country stated by you at all.
all hopeless lacking key facts like that.

what country? (you bought the PC)
what account?
what does not work, my guess some online accounts dead?

Packard Bell... | Answered on Jul 14, 2019

we in the USA (fixya is that) do not have any PB here. zero.
a table has the battery sealed inside.
to replace it we split the cases just like on newer cell phones,
using special plastic pry bars to do that.
use youtube, and search, "dismantling a table pc"
endless endless examples, learn to youtube
or learn to use your PB support page for your unstated country.
I can not guess your country and nobody ever tells it.
why , IDK , but is silly.

google "Packard bell , your country name , + support)
the login there and register your PC and ask for help.

bad buy of the year, PB stinks, its under dog PC
Acer owns it and support lacks as do books on it.
first off most of these are sold outside USA so you posted to USA computers but we have no such PC here.
only 1 for sale here on ebay. (and importer)
amazon. zero sold here in USA<
so where are you , the PB support pages are not the same
in UK
in Asis, or Africa or in India, etc.
google this
google Packard bell (+your countries name) and the word SUPPORT

that is how to get support, we have zero PC like there in USA>

Packard Bell... | Answered on Jul 14, 2019

what country, we are USA and no PB here, mostly.
PB is badged up ACER, PC, they simply own the name PB.
so what does reset mean. ally 10.1inches, ok.

pc have vast things to reset why not just say what is wrong first. so in the context of that we can learn gee you need x,y, or z.
post symptoms first or be more clear.

like this,
androiod is infected, what do I do.?
or is PC dead? totally, just clue heaps. any clues.

GB= UK? see this for UK>?

PB has horrible support, and worse manuals made.
only thing worse is same company but called Gateway PC.

why not register your PC first then ask them for help.

PB sells to UK, India, and Asia,africa and each has its own models of PC and support. no country stated, so super hard to answer you at all.
and not here.

no air books here on amazon
on fleaybay 7" air books with Android
only 1 listed, (means not sold in USA )
here is the one listing, zero W10, period here.

Android 8.1 Oreo go Edition
64-bit quad-core processor

call or contact PB, and ask for support.

what did it have before this, w7? and did it run ok?
did you check with PB first to see it will run w10
w10-32bit? or 64?

I first test the hDD first, using smart utilities first.
no OS loads onto any bad hdd.
are you in UK , England?

DESKTOPS, but what name is it above is model not name.
The GB site only show s this are not in GP Great Britain.
This PC maker is using BRANDED PCs.
using google I can' t find the model name at all.
who converted it, you, and with what media to do that.?
dropping off the suffix UK I see others calling it an Imedia.
look here see if w10 is even supported by the maker.
