Hi and welcome to the forum,
If you click on this link it will take you to the driver page of your machine: Customer Care eMachines

From there you'll either see the drivers or need to search for them like I've done in the screenshot:

emachines/acer are a joke, no 'windows 7 home premium x32' driver on their site seems to want to install! :(
