Looking for a motherboard for a eMachine T2792

I believe it takes a IMPERIAL GV  MBEM100979IM

But where do I find one of these at?

Thanks

Hi jsmid,
Looks like that is a Socket 478 motherboard.  You could replace it with another Socket 478 board.  

Here are some links to Socket 478 motherboards:

I have not replaced an e-Machines motherboard.  I don't know if they use  proprietary parts or not.

Good luck,
Ben

They certainly do use propriatory parts. The motherboard can still be replaced but you will also have to buy a new copy of windows to go along with it.  emachine puts an SLP code in the bios to check the hardware that caused re-activation when the motherboard is replaced, if its not there then it won't activate windows.
