Emachines are built using the Realtek sound "card" (actually a chip) on the motherboard. After having similar issues I discovered that the AC'97 sound chip doesn't support MIDI, only Wave. They do not supply an updated driver enabling MIDI. I'm still searching for a software solution (possibly Timidity or a MIDI emulator program) but haven't tried anything yet. If I'm successful I'll post again, else I'll be adding a sound card/driver(s) that can handle MIDI.
