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

    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.

    hey Callandor : >>>   - they are known as a lost cost provider.    <<<

    is that lost cause or low cost??

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