Just to be sure - it doesn't have an ILO board and you are using the wrong connector ? (I've seen that happen...)

I'd try to remove everything that's not needed for POST and then see what happens.

Re: ML 530G2, not complete POST

there is no ILO card and any other pci cards, thats beside I change its configuration by minimized all parts that I can change like minimum ram, scsi 1&2,CD rom and floppy drive, but its still no signal reach to monitor, I imagine that the reason is builtin video controller or motherboard.
so if any one can help me and show me how can i test them but i have not any video PCI-X card.
and thanks for your help

Have you tried a different monitor?

Also, most ProLiant's have a DIP switch on the system board to clear NVRAM. Consult the sticker on the cover for the correct DIP switch location and settings.

PCI display adapter cards are generally compatible with PCI-X slots.

The only other option without additional spare parts would be to reseat everything:
CPU's
RAM
cables
all PCI cards should be removed

I have tried to reseat all RAM's, power supply, memory board and CPU's, I have cleared the NVRAM and also change the monitor.

I reseat scsi A&B, CD-ROM, FLOPPY, backplane power cables, and the same thing.

all expantion slots in this server was PCI-X 64bit 100MHz, can i use normal pci video card to test if the builtin video card was the problem.
and in your opinion in this problem what part is responsiple for it

There are multiple revisions to the PCI specification, but to put it simply, if the card is keyed/notched so that it can be inserted in the PCI-X slot, it should be voltage compatible.

If you manage to get the system running with a PCI display adapter, the system board (which contains the integrated display adapter) should be replaced.

Also, I just checked my ML530 G2. The Memory Status LED flashes for about thirty seconds after the system is powered on, and then the Memory Status LED stays solid green.
