Compaq Proliant pl1600r start up problem

I have encountered a problem while starting up the Proliant pl1600r server.

When I try to turn on the server, it checks the keyboard, mouse, CD Drive, Floppy Drives and HDD Once (I could see corresponding LEDs flash up once). Then there is no display coming up. The monitor is idle. But I can open/close CD Tray, the mouse is active, but keyboard is not active (the numlock key does not respond).

I have tried turning off the power, then powered on again, and again, and the same thing keeps happening.

However if I keep trying this, like 1 time out of 20 times, the starting up is then successful, the Proliant Logo comes up, the POST, memory check, SCSI Check, all are OK, and the windows would start normally. Everything would work well before turning off the power.

After shutting down the windows, turning off the power, I tried turning on again, and the same thing happened,

please suggest what I should do..Thank you so much
