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

Then download it, and look for those settings

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".

No comment has been added to this question in more than 21 days, so it is now classified as abandoned..
I will leave the following recommendation for this question in the Cleanup topic area:
Split: Callandor and nobus

Any objections should be posted here in the next 4 days. After that time, the question will be closed.
