I have an eMachine 1831-05 that has always been problematic since a crash around 10 years ago. I recently tried to flash the BIOS, but the image was incorrectly labelled and did not match my hardware. Now, memory allocations and system variables are not matching correctly, causing an ever increasing amount of problems within windows. I need to restore the BIOS to the proper one for this machine and fix the clocking since everything is incredibly slow. I don't know where to start to fix the damage without losing the things I did manage to salvage. Any suggestions please?

Your eMachines ET1831-05 desktop is running "incredibly slow" for a number of reasons:

1. It has a very weak single core processor.

2. It has a very weak graphic device.

3. It has only 3 GB of DDR2 RAM.
(Note: It supports a maximum of 4 GB)

4. Its hard drive is about 91% full.

5. It is running the most system-hungry and feature-rich version of Windows 7 there is.
(Note: It originally came with Windows 7 Home Premium, so the Windows 7 Ultimate in it is probably non-genuine)

Its support site has no BIOS update, so I have no idea what you installed and where you obtained it from.
