If you only hear beep sounds but no display on your monitor it might mean a los of different issues.
Chech if your monitor works, connect it to another computer. If it woeks count how many beep sounds do you hear when you turn on your computer., go to google and input "meaning of beep sounds" Depending on numbre of beeps, you can get a fast diagnosis. Probably you have ahardware issue. If it is not tne monitor, it is your server and I suggest you should take it to a reapir shop
How long have you waited for it to boot? I know some servers take forever before they send a signal to the monitor. However, if you're get the monitor test screen or "no signal" screen, this usually is a sign that the monitor is not getting any signal from the server, indicating a bad cable or loose connection or the like (though not always if it's still booting). Have you looked in the server cabinet to make sure nothing is broke on the on-board connection or something? Is the DVI port you mentioned on the external PCI card? What does it plug into? I'm guessing you've checked for any installed video cards. Is there another port on the front or anything under a panel?
Generally if there is no display, either your monitor is bad (try another one) or your video card is bad. If it's an integrated video card, you can install an add-on card. If the add-on card works, consider yourself lucky. If it doesn't, your motherboard is bad.
Was it configured to try to boot from 'A:' ?
Disconnect the hard-drive & CD/DVD drives.
Put a diskette into the drive, and see if it tries to find a boot-record on the diskette.
If it tries, then it has P.O.S.T.'d correctly.
> no beep codes
When it worked, did it beep _once_ when P.O.S.T. completed?
Taking out the RAM _should_ cause some beep codes, i.e., "no RAM".
Replace the monitor?
Replace a dead video-card?
Or, add-in a video-card, and connect a monitor to it, leaving the original monitor connected to the original video-card. One of the two displays should show the P.O.S.T.
First make sure that the monitor is plugged into power and properly connected to the tower. If it is, does it sound like the server is actually powering up even though you are not getting display? If the server is powering up, then I would suspect the monitor to possibly be faulty. You can troubleshoot this by attaching another monitor.
If the server is not powering up, then you may have a faulty power supply or faulty processor.
