Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit

Hello kimberly, and welcome to Sevenforums!

Your notebook is an older model made for windows XP, but we might be able to get the drivers working on it. This is the website for your drivers (Select windows xp 32bit operating system-home): eMachines Support - Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / W Series / W4605
You might install them in compatibility mode for XP SP3 using this tutorial (originally for vista drivers, same idea applies): Drivers - Install Vista Drivers on Windows 7

Download the newest version of each driver. Let me know if you need further help!
