You've got to install that drivers. They don't come with Windows. The most likely places to find them:
1. The driver CD that came with the machine, nicely packaged with the Windows XP CD you used to reinstall.
2. The emachines site.
3. The site of the maker of the motherboard or networkcard.

Where's your warranty?

First thing to do is to get a hold of the driver either for your NIC or wireless adapter. What model is that you're working with? If you know the model, then you can go to e-machine site and download the driver.

Once you have your internet going, then you can find the drivers for the other devices.
