Proliant 1600R boots with No Video

I have a Proliant 1600R 6/266. While Trying to troubleshoot a floppy drive problem I accidental set switch 3(Tower-to-rack conversion) for the SW1 switch on the system I/O board from ON to OFF. When I tried booting the system it would boot with no post or video. Realizing my mistake I switch back to Rack mount mode but I still get no video or post when it boots. Any ideals on what I need to do to resolve my issue?

My guess would the it has nothing to do with the switch and there is a bad connection somewhere, something you disturbed while working on the unit.

Go through the system and re-seat everything (unplug/remove and re-insert), cpu, memory, all the cables. It sounds more like something is not connect correctly that is stopping the POST

Reseating everything as well as taking an easer to the contacts seems to have done the trick. Thank You!
