    Read this thread. http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=87264
    The software that is recommended in there will display the information you need and possibly links to download your drivers. Once you find the info you need go to emachines.com and look for your drivers.

    Basically dude, your computer doesn't have the correct drivers installed for your graphics card. You will need to find the make/model of graphics card/chip that your computer has then go to the E-Machines website which Aerospace Eng supplied you with and then download them.
    You can use Everest to find which card/chip you have.

    One thing I had a problem with on my computer was that a checkbox in the Advanced window in the tab where the refresh rate is that is called Hide options this computer cannot display (or something like that). After I unchecked that, it started to give me the rest of my screen resolutions.
