www.emachines.com DOES have driver downloads on their web site. go to "customer care" then "product support". drill down in the pull-downs to pick your computer type and model, then when the next screen comes up, click the + sign next to "downloads" and you'll see 'em all for your system.

you can use Everest to identify your hardware and the drivers for it :

http://www.lavalys.com/index.php?page=product&view=1            Everest home free
or identify unknown hard :

http://www.freewindows.dk/fw/modules/mydownloads/viewcat.php?cid=145&min=20&orderby=titleA&show=10
for the AC      97 adio, you will need the motherboard drivers, so identify it, and download the drivers from the sites given above

my procedure :


1. open the Pc case
2. write down the numbers that you found on the interface cards
4. type these numbers into google

example  "RTL8129 drivers windows"

Hello, thanks for the help. i still can't find the drivers with the links that you gave me. i tried to go back and email tech support but the page likes to crash when i click Submit, so the email is not going. they dont' even have a place where ic an buy that backup cd again, the only option now is to go buy a new modem with its driver with it :(!!!

you can go to the parts depot on their site and pull up a little more specific information on your model... from that and a little googling, i ran across www.e4allinc.info which has a wealth of info on emachines and what's inside of them...

this is probably your motherboard.. http://www.e4allinc.info/dir1/motherboards/socket478/D845GVSR.htm
an intel d845gvsr.  downloads for that motherboard are right on intel's web site: http://support.intel.com/design/motherbd/sr/sr_drive.htm#XP

they also have a page on identifying your modem and driver downloads:  http://www.e4allinc.info/dir1/support/modem_info.htm

oh, yea.. call up their 'customer care' center and request a new set of restore cd's.. get 'em, even if they cost a few bucks.  hopefully you're still under warranty.. http://www.e4me.com/support/tech_support.html#tech
