Question about Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server
The Dell Poweredge 1800 does not start and does not display on the screen
The jumpers are near the CMOS battery, by the SATA ports. Sometimes clearing the NVRAM using the jumpers can work with no video issues. If it doesn't, try removing all unnecessary components - drives, cards, memory beyond a single DIMM in slot 1, etc. If that doesn't work, try reseating the processor, if there is only one. If there are two, you can try booting with a single processor (always in slot 1), swapping them to try each one. If these steps don't work, it is likely a bad board. If there are no fans spinning, lights on the front, etc., then it might be the power supply.
Unfortunately, there are no jumpers (and no BIOS setting for that matter) to disable the onboard video.
