Older ML350 G3: random/garbage characters on bootup

Hi,

I am repurposing an ML350 G3 that has been unused for at least a year. When I boot up the machine, the HP Proliant splash screen shows up fine but then the BIOS/Setup screens are filled with exclamation points, and the words are jumbled with random letters. I can't seem to find any reference of this issue anywhere. Has anyone seen this problem before and if so, can you help me fix it?

Thanks,
- Vince

Have You tried to flash the BIOS : http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3279705...〈=en&cc=us

I guess thiswill fix it, i suppose the BIOS rom was somehow corrupted
