There could be several issues causing the problem. I am presuming the blinking orange light is on the monitor which usually indicates there is no video signal. So, the first thing I would do is re-seat the video card if it has one. The second thing would check would be the CMOS battery, verify that there is over 3.0v. After that if neither of these two things has fixed the issue more information would be required. What make is the motherboard, what is the processor, etc.

No display on screen


Several things to be checked -
Does the monitor work on another computer?
Have you tried both video ports - front & back?
Can you get into BIOS with the appropriate key ("Del" or "F2") and does this show a screen?
Can your monitor display the native resolution of the server?

If you still cannot get a display to show on your monitor, then the bad news may be that either the graphics component on the motherboard, the motherboard itself, the memory or the CPU may have given up the ghost. First see if you can get a compatible graphics card that you know works fitted into an expansion slot and see if that will give you a screen. Otherwise one by one replacement of the components may be the only option.

Usually this happens when the monitor is trying to translate the signal given off by the video card.

Nothing to worry about, simply a process that the system needs to go through.

Monitor and keyboard will not respond


It only happens with your keyboard and mouse? or does it include your monitor too? if it does include you monitor then it is the video card. It is built in to your system and is causing the problem. I got the same issue before. My mouse doesn't work, keyboard won't respond, monitor is blank. I know its the video card. It is not typical for a server to respond that way but you need to replace the system or replace the video card...
