When the server turn on the monitor couldn't display anything
My friend has given the server to me several days before. The server
has not been used for long time, when it turn on, the monitor can't
display anything and there is an orange light blinking. I need your second opinion/suggestion for this problem.
Re: when the server turn on the monitor couldn't display...
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.

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.
Do you try disabling Screensaver feature on those two servers...might that be causing display prob, if you try pressing any key or it would show screen
But still if it is not working, Check Power saving feature for these two Server, turn off featue to turn off display and harddisk if computer is standy by for......mins
If your server came up without key board and monitor on last boot, you wont get anything by connecting monitor.
you have reboot the server by making user, input device=keyboard and output device=monitor
you can see this value by using eeprom command from os
you set this value
Just go into the bios and insert the correct parameters. you shut it off before it could save the settings. Or hit fi on boot and it should take you into the bios and you cand sort it out in there. If you want an easy way, just do a system restore. Start,Programs, accesorys, system tools, system restore, just go back a day or two before you had that issue, and you should be good to go, good luck
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...
Do the server has an onboard Video disable the video in the BIOS setup insert another PCI Video card and check for the display , IF the PCI display is up then there could be a problem with Onboard card.
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.
