    I'm afraid the only possible solution would be trying the 64bit 7 driver set to see if that will work on 8. As often the case the OEMs especially with any older models are typically fallen behind others at keeping up with the newest and latest version out. I waited a full year to see Vista x86 for an old tuner card due to that.

    As far as any 3rd party wares you would need one written to work with eMachines to begin with once a working driver set was installed. Otherwise you will just end up back at Square One!
