I had a similar problem before, can see any video on either the serial
or the video without keyboard. I had to unplug my videocard from the SS4
to get the serial console working.

my 2c.

Okay this one has only a single cpu board.

Here is what happens:

I power it up... in the front the left, middle and right light turn on.
Then the right one flicker's a few times and it stay's on like that.

On the back (only 1 system board):
The led's do some stuff and flicker arround. After that only the 2 green
LED's (cpu led's) stay lit. I tried to console in but didnt get
anything. Maybe I have the wrong cable (it's late at night and I build
one quick with shell's) so I will grab one at work tomorrow that I know
that works.

Looks like the machine is dead...

For the fact that it was tossed in part's into a wet dumpster and took
some serious rain beating that kinda makes sense. The machine is all dry
now but who know's what those corporate pigs did to that poor little
machine :-)
