I had problems with Win 7 doing the re-boot cycle and tried everything that was suggested with no luck. So I wiped it and installed XP. Now I cant connect to Internet - the network card is not recognized and wont run. Tried to download drivers from emachines.com, but all versions give me the message "this is for Vista". Have purchased 3 different cards to install and just bypass the card built into mother board, but none of them fit the PCI slots inside! Anyone have any suggestions?

You will need to download the RealTek Drivers from http://www.realtek.com and install them.

You will want to Select Windows XP 32Bit.
