Exclamation Intel STL2, doesnt start up on screen, solid green lights

Hi, i have an Intel STL2 for one of my servers, and all of a sudden it would no longer boot anymore! I have tried pulling everything out and putting it back in 1 by 1 to see if it had anything to do with PS but even when onli the cpus where in it still wouldnt boot!!! Also i have tried putting in a PCI graphics card and yet again the screen does just not show up! Any ideas on what is going on, or how i can fix it

microsoft has a floppy bootdisk image for testing memory, which i'm pretty sure was developed elsewhere. pretty sure it is called "memtest". do a search for it, create the floppy.

Then when you turn on the machine, go into the BIOS (hitting the DELete key continually while the pc starts up will probably bring up the BIOS menu), make sure that booting to the floppy is the first boot option, save the change, boot the floppy in , restart and see what happens.
