Alpha Dec Proliant 3000 - Won't Boot

I am trying to troubleshoot a dead Alpha Dec Proliant 3000. The fan all turn on when powered up. I get no beeping, no video, no lights on the hard drives. I get a solid light on the CD Rom and that's all. I have reseated everything and tried a separate video card. No dice. Any ideas?

Re: Alpha Dec Proliant 3000 - Won't Boot

A fast blinking or, what appears to be, a solid led on the cdrom drive while booting up, in combination with no post and no video usually indicates a problem with a processor.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
