you can check for a bios upgrade. First identify your motherboard manufacturer with :

I'm afraid if you want flexibility and performance, you should not have gone with eMachines - they are known as a lost cost provider.  If you don't see the options available now, I don't think they can be made available.  You will have to upgrade to a better motherboard that supports these things, and Abit and Asus are known for providing them.

LOL! - Freudian slip there - I must have been thinking "lost cause provider", and mixed that with "low cost provider".
