The Imperial brand no longer appears to exist. Your friend's pc specs are here:

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T-Series&model=T2882

You will need a compatible m/board. The processor details are here:

Basaicallt you will need a socket 478 m/board. Here is a selection

You can contact emachines and see if it is under warranty.

Emachines often use legacy mainboards, this means that it is possible a "non-emachines" board may not be compatible with your PSU and also the connectors to which you connect the display, or usb devices devices might be located at different places than what the case allows for. If you know someone with a standard motherboard first ask him whether you can borrow it to make sure it fits the case and also uses the same PSU type.

Emachines also use the "System Locked Pre-installation" or SLP licensing on their motherboards. The XP license code is locked into the motherboard BIOS and when the motherboard is replaced with a NON-OEM board it won't have the SLP code, making the Emachine  XP license useless.
