DL380 G4 seems to boot but nothing on screen

Hi I have a HP DL380 G4, when booting nothing appears on screen, have checked KVM with other servers and that seems to be working fine, initially all lights come on including HDD lights but after a minute they go off and stay off.
The NIC lights are also blinking as normal but cannot ping anything the iLO is also blinking but cannot access.
Not sure if the motherboard has gone any help will be appreciated

many thanks

Hello,
Any LEDs on the System Board ?
Any amber LEDs ?

Can you bring it down to min configuration ?
Remove all external devices, PCI cards.
See if it boots.
Do you get any error when you try to log into iLO web ?

Regards,

Hello,

How many CPU's do you have installed ? Problem could be caused by the PPM.

How many memory modulse you have installed? I had a similiar issue with a server that only had 2 DIMMS installed. One of the DIMMS ended up being bad, and so the one bank of memory could not initialize causing the server to shut off after a minute.
