no video

I am setting up a Proliant 1850R server that had not been used in some time. When I turn it on, I do not get any video. The power indicators are on, the DLT drive seeks for a tape, however I do not get any video. I have changed the RAM but this did not solve the problem. The video is built into the mainboard and the jumper is set to enable the video. When I insert a floppy and let it sit for 15 min to see if it is just the post video, the floppy never spins. Where do I go from here to troubleshoot the problem?

Re: no video

John:

Does the server POST any beeps?
Do the fans spin?
Power Supplies are seated and lit...
Make sure the PCI Riser board, processor(s) and that all the power cables are firmly seated.
Look at the Interlock LED's.

Stupid question, do you know the monitor you are using is good?
Enjoy!

Re: no video

We've had a similiar problem on our HP Netservers. Whos knows - it might be the same problem with early ProLiants.

Try pulling our the power chords to all the PSU:s for a minute or so and then plugging it back in an restarting. This has helped us a number of times. It somehow "resets" the BIOS or something.
