Is the closest i can come to telling you the motherboard in it, I looked around and couldn't find out.
But anyway, like on Speedfan It doesn't show any fans, ambient temperature is always 0, the HDD and GPU temp read fine tho. The core temperature is always the exact same number as the GPU temperature and i'm pretty sure that's not right. I don't remember seeing anything about temperatures in BIOS either, going to check and edit in just a sec. So, is there something that needs plugged in that isn't or maybe i can never find out what's going on in there?

Tried to get everest to tell me what board I have but it can't figure it out either.

Okay, well BIOS has no trouble telling me CPU temp, internal temperature, or the CPU and rear fan speeds, so maybe i do just have something plugged in wrong?

Everest usually will mirror the temperatures and voltages seen in the BIOS. Another program you could download is SIW, it should be able to tell you what the motherboard is unless it is really obscure. Usually the CPU is the only device on the motherboard that is supplied with a thermal detector, some hdds have their own, and some GPUs will as well. Most other temperatures are guess work unless extra sensors and software has been added.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I have seen identifying marks on eMachines motherboards. They are usually a series of letters and numbers, usually white letters that have been silkscreened. (I have also seen small white labels.)

Look around the CPU as well as between a couple of the PCI slots. Any numbers you find should be googled.

Good luck.
