Yep, very few (if any) eMachines have a separate video card, they're all built into the motherboard to save money.
A look at the eMachines website shows that this model (T5226) is the only one currently offered with 1 gB of RAM ( http://www.emachines.com/products/products.html?prod=T5226
) And the link refers to "up to 224 mB of shared video memory" I'd say that's where you memory went.
FYI - The new Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) has a different way of counting the memory. So you'll see more evidence of the video memory being used (which wasn't as evident in XP). And, since it's dynamically allocated, you also may see the numbers changing based on the applications that you're running (but haven't experienced this myself). You can read more about WDDM here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Display_Driver_Model
