    From eMachines, I would download the Chipset driver and install that first. Reboot.
    File: http://downloads.emachines.com/drivers/chipset/845GL_4.00.1009.exe

    Then download the Intel 845GL Video Driver from eMachines, unzip it and install from "setup.exe" second. (Reboot if necessary.)
    File: http://downloads.emachines.com/drivers/video/845GL_VGA_6.13.10.3264.zip

    Then last, download the Realtek AC'97 Audio Driver from eMachines. Unzip the file and install from "Drivers\Audio\Patch\269601USA8.EXE" first. (Reboot if necessary.) Then install "Drivers\Audio\Setup.exe" last.
    File: http://downloads.emachines.com/drivers/audio/AC97_5.10.0.3900.zip

    Good luck.
