It should be marked on the board itself, open the PC and take a look. Look between the expansion card slots if no model number is apparent anywhere else on the board.

Most of these were fitted with an Intel Celeron 2.6GHz Processor and your version G ithink has onboard graphics chip.I believe this model was specially made for PC World/Dixon's and is not on eMachines website.

This does not really matter If you know the processor, go for any reputable make and model
that supports this, and is compatible with your RAM
and does what you want regarding graphics and expansion slots.

One caveat with all of the ilk of Dell, HP and eMachines etc.Make sure their case layout will accept the new Mobo. Quite often they they are specially made for them so standard off the shelf parts won't always fit!I often end up changing the case as well when I repair them as it works out a lot cheaper than buying their spares!

Asoft been said here and echoed by PC Bilbo
Many of the mainstream brands delll/HP et al
use custom parts- Repair and upgrading becomes a nightmare.
