Compaq Proliant 1600 wont boot


I have a problem with this server as it wont boot.

I switch it on and the drive lights all flash and CD rom ligh flashes then nothing !!

Also the fans on the power supply dont turn. I thought it was a faulty power supply so I got a new one but same proplem.

What I have noticed is that if I plug the (Small Signal Connector P5 on the backplane) out so that it is not connected, then the power supply fans at least turn but it still wont boot !!

Could this be a faulty backplane board ?

Any ideas where I can get another one ?
