Re: emachines d3315 video failed - no signal to monitor.
Is the system work using the old video card? if yes then, use it and then reconfigure the in the bios setup using the PCI video card. You can insert it simultaneously and then use first the old video in preparation for the configuration using the new PCI video card

Most likely you have an integrated video card. I would suggest taking out the ram and see if your machine beeps. We know it is not the monitor itself. Since its an integrated video card off the board try using a PCI spare video card if you have one or an AGP card and restart the computer and see if you have video. The bummer about these machines is that you have to replace the board to repair this or use an external video card that will work with your machine. AGP or a PCI slot has to be available and it has to work with your make and model computer. Contact support online and see what upgrades are available. Personally integrated hardware is a pain to deal with. Factory hardware is something you cannot get over the counter often times if your lucky you may be able to get a PCI card to work. John
If the monitor works with other computer then the video card in the computer where the monitor does not work is bad. You need to replace the video card. If the video card is on the motherboard, just replace it with a video card that fits into one of the PCI slots. If you were using VGA then purchase a PCI VGA Video Card.
This is quite a common problem, if everything has power then you need to look beyond, this sounds like its your video card, if you have more than one video card slot (these look different to the pci slots) then you can swap them over to see if its the slot, if not then you need a new video card my friend, if thats the case get the model number off of the card you have and search it on amazon
This could be an issue of a video card gone bad. I have experienced the same issue firsthand. This could also mean that no RAM is installed. If you have been using this computer previously, the second option is probably not even an option.
If you have another computer available, please try plugging the monitor in to that machine to test. If it works, your Video Card is more than likely toast.
But not to worry, you should be able to find a new card for that machine. I believe it will be a PCI Video Card, which may run you anywhere from $20-$100 depending on what you purchase. Please consult with eMachines before ordering a new card. Some will not work with your machine.
I hope this helps you out. Have a great day and please don't hesitate to ask any further questions regarding this issue.
Does your emachine has inbuild video card or AGP or PCI card? if one it has AGP or PCI card try to reseat it. If it is inbuild try to use AGP card or PCI card and see what happen. Also try to check whether you have an inbuild video and AGP or PCI both installed, if you have both try to use one of them.
The 'test screen' of the monitor means only that the monitor would display if it receives an input signal.
Make sure it isn't something simple like dislodged video connector on the back of your system box.
You may even want to removed the plug and reinsert it several times in case a sync signal contact hasn't taken a hike.
If this doesn't help, your restore CD won't help either; it means that the video signal (there are several: Red, Green, Blue plus two synchronization signals) is incomplete or missing altogether.
If the video connector is attached to the strip with many others, then the video is on the main board (common on lower end systems) and the chip supplying video has failed.
This doesn't make the system worthless as you can buy dozens of different video cards to plug in to the main board and disable the on-board chip.
I don't know how old your system is but you will likely need a PCI video card (check your manual for the types of buss available for 'add-on' cards) to install and then possibly new drivers from a supplied CD.
This is a pretty simple procedure and even the Chinglish instructions are normally enough to guide you.
Until you can see your system's boot sequence appearing on screen again, you won't be able to restore anything.
