I have a home-built server that hasn't been turned on in a while but when you turn it on it gives no video. We have changed video cards. We have changed the CMOS battery. In reading another post, it said to disconnect all drives and see if it would give video and then reconnect one by one to isolate the conflict. The two SCSI hard drives were disconnected and SCSI card taken out. I disconnected floppy drive and CD Roms and the only thing left was the tape drive. It booted up and GAVE ME VIDEO. So, I started to reconnect one by one to see what the problem was. I turned it off and put the floppy cable back in place. It wouldn't boot up and so I thought that was the problem and I disconnected it. Then, no video again. Everything has been disconnected. Memory is seated correctly and one that was fuzzy as to whether it was seated correctloy has been removed. I've followed all of the suggestions I've found in other posts. What now?
