If it is a new server,call the manufacturer.

If I get a DOA or something that I think is DOA,I would want a new one.

Don't wait until it is in production to find out it's a lemon.

Try reseating the CPU,  if that fails connect a speaker up and see if you get any beeps

More then likely its the CPU that's not seated properly.

On a side note reconnect the 4-pin 12V power connector.  Then
plug in the EZ-Plug connector in addition to the regular ATX
connector and see if it powers up

What type of server is this?

 I do agree with the last post, however if it were me I would try reseating ALL of the components in the system. If that does not fix the issue a good bet would be to try booting the system with minimal components, usually this consists of the mainboard, CPU, memory and video card. This narrow down the components to troubleshoot.

Also I have seen a few Dells that give errors out of the box, sometimes restoring the default BIOS settings will solve the problem.

Good luck.
