Assuming you have purchased a new sound card, it should have come with the driver disk.
First remove the side panel of the computer. Should be one or two screws in the rear of the PC.
Next, unplug the Power cable. (the thick black cable that goes to the power on the wall.)
You will need an open slot in which to insert the card.
The sound card will most likely have a PCI bus interface (meaning it plugs into a White PCI slot on the mainboard. The silver part with the jacks on it will be facing the back of the computer. Slide it into the white slot and secure with a screw or bracket. It should slide all the way into the slot; you have to apply mild pressure, but do not force it.
Once it is plugged in, connect the speakers (usually a green plug) and connect power, then start the computer.
Install drivers using the driver disk that came with the sound card. Then test sound using speakers.

W3502 emachine SM Bus Controller driver

Looks promising. It's an INF fie which are driver files. Download, extract, and direct Device Manager where to install driver from. The worst that can happen is it won't install, or you have uninstall / delete. Better than those fake drivers you mentioned.

There is a problem with your configuration card.

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

Remove and Re-insert the Configuration Card

  • Power OFF the printer using the power switch. The power switch is located behind the interface cover on the right side of the printer.

  • Disconnect the power cord from the electrical wall outlet.

  • Open the interface cover and locate the Configuration Card

  • Remove and make sure the Configuration Card is properly orientated. The Xerox image should face the rear of the printer with the chip inserted into the printer first.

  • CAUTION: Do not touch the chip.

  • Slide the Configuration Card into the printer.

  • Connect the power cord into the electrical wall outlet.

  • Power ON the printer.

  • Close the interface cover.

  • Print a Configuration Page to confirm the installation was successful. See the Related Items below for additional information.

If this doesn't work you'll probably need a new card.

Hope this helps ;)

I need to install the sounds of my pc but i dont know how to do it .thanks..

Hi, Disconnect all power to your PC. Open up the cover your PC (CPU) and find spare connection on *********** ( beside your VGA / video card). If you see a spare, you can install your card there. If you found cover with screw, remove it accordingly. Place your sound card on female adapter securely.Check if there is output audio wires from your cd rom and connect to your sound card. Close the PC cover. Power on your PC. If you have external active speaker, connect it out to sound card audio output. Now you supposed to can play your PC with sound card.

You need to install the video driver for your computer- Usually there is a disk with drivers, however you can go to the Emachines support site- and download your drivers

EMachine Video Card upgrade

Ok so are you getting video from the card? Look in system information and see what graphics hardware the computers says is installed. Are you replacing a video card or did you add a card to the system? If you are adding a card make sure that you change the settings in the BIOS to boot first on AGP/PCI-E express slot. Make sure that fast write settings and bus speed settings are compatible with your card. For example if you purchased a 8X AGP card and your computer only does 4X the card may not work. Double check that you are trying to install the correct drivers for your card and operating system.

It sounds as if you are missing the power cord for the monitor. If the cord did not come with your monitor/PC, you can pick one up at any Radio Shack or electronics store. If you could forward me your eMachine model number as well as the monitor model number, I will see if I can better solve this for you without you having to spend anymore money.
