Here's a google page that has some links pertaining to the updating of your computer. Since I didn't have the make and model, I couldn't find any specific info for you, but I hope this helps:
One person in a blog mentioned that they weren't getting good support from emachines, so you might try other blogs on the net that pertain to your motherboard/machine.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Depends on what is wrong with the motherboard.

Capacitors? (Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor)
These are replaced by hand if you have good de-soldering, and soldering skills.

As for replacement of the motherboard chipset, (Northbridge and Southbridge), plus the GPU chipset, a Reflow Machine is used.

[GPU = Graphics Processing Unit,


When a GPU chipset is soldered directly to the motherboard, it is Integrated Graphics.
Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.

A GPU chipset can also be soldered to a graphics adapter card.

at the bare minimum, you can upgrade it with a PCI graphics card. That would plug into one of your spare white PCI slots, and they make those with atleast 256mb of memory ( When shopping for one, dont confuse a PCI video card with a PCI express card) I couldn't find enough info on what exact board you have, as they used several, but many had a brown AGP memory slot, which is a better option for you. Keep in mind, also, that if you upgrade the video card and memory , you might need to upgrade your power supply too, due to the higher current requirements of the new card and memory.

If all else fails, bring your tower to a computer shop, and they will usually tell you what you need for free, with hopes to sell a upgrade!

That is going to depend on what it was set to. There is no factory password for the Bios on these computers. If you have forgotten the password you will need to reset the Bios using the jumper on the mother board. If you don't have your book on the motherboard you will need to go to the eMachine website and look up the down load of the book for your specific model.

You can boot in safe mode to download the driver and install it. To boot in safe mode, press F8 while booting up and choose Safe Mode from the options. The driver of that machine can be downloaded on the following page.
