Question about Computer Servers
Did you check the connection on the CPU zone up near the front interior of the server? They are like two black modules that sometimes get loose. If you open up the case, near the front left (usually) there you can push the modules down and make sure they are set properly, then try to power up server again. Let me know if that doesn't work and we can try something else.

It is possible the fan on the heatsink for the CPU is broken but make sure you check the small power plug for that fan before replacing it. If it is broken make sure you dont run the server or else you could permanently damage the CPU for the server.

How big if your environment? How many users? Do you have remote access needs? If your environment is under 75 users then you might want to consider moving to Windows Small Business Server. It's a great little package that includes Exchange with it. You can also get the premium edition which includes Sharepoint.
Don't forget licensing needs during this whole process too. You want to make sure you are covered properly with software licenses from Microsoft when making the migration.
The hardware specs seem adequate but it will depend on the amount of users in your environment and workload for it.
I've included three links to different options for migration:
This link is pretty good to explain using the Microsoft tool.
This link provides info on the swing migration which is a bit more popular in the small business arena. Works pretty good. I've done it a few times.
This link is for Acronis products that allow for easy ghosting or copying of data from one server to another. The good thing about this tool is that your SIDs are kept the same. So I don't know if its a big deal (depends on your environment size) but it can be a pain to rejoin workstations to a domain if new servers are added without successfully moving necessary settings. I've used this tool a few times. It's quick and easy.
I look forward to hearing more from you. Please update me on the questions I asked and if I can help further I will be glad too. Don't forget to rate the solutions once we're done! Thanks.

As soon as the server turns on and you see a BIOS screen press the F8 key constantly. This should be you to the safe mode screen. If not then try another keyboard, or another USB slot.
