    Do you have the .exe of the drivers or do you just want to extract them from PC 1 and carry them over to PC 2? If it's the latter, not that I'm aware of. If you know the hardware specifications, just download the .exe's online, it's not all that time consuming.

    You can search for your PC on Packard Bell's support site here.

    Your motherboard is essentially a giant bus system with devices, and the devices on the motherboard require drivers, yes.

    A sound card is basically an advanced digital to analog I/O device that feeds your speakers or headset "sound". This too needs drivers. The sound card on that PC is likely integrated within the motherboard.
