I tried to find some info at http://www.packardbell.com/
but they wont give me anything without a serial number.
Other PB help sites say they need the motherboard type to help as they say the model number "means nothing".
So without information I can only guess. A lot of confusion is caused because sound cards used to have amplifiers in them. Thus you could plug in the unpowered "PC speakers" and get reasonable volume out of them. Modern sound cards do not have amplifiers in them so if you plug in PC type speakers you will hear (next to) nothing.
PB may have an amplifier hidden somewhere in the monitor/speaker setup.
Try your sound ports with powered speakers (ones you have to connect to the mains and switch on).
There are a whole load of other options but it depends what you are aiming at.
Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
