Hi and welcome.

Can you post your IRQ listing?

I'm assuming you are running 98 or ME?

Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and hit ok...go to hardware, IRQs, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

What you need is a brand name and a model for the computer and/or motherboard! Genuine Intel doesn't tell us much...

Go to www.belarc.com and let the site read what you have on your computer. It should give the make and model of the motherboard. Maybe we can go on from there

Yes, the modem appears to be missing as well....you must be connecting to the internet with the NIC card, correct?

Also, is this an E-Machine?

Is there any brand name description on the outside of the case? I believe HP either does, or did use those motherboards too.
