So Ive given up on the sun server I have for a while. Moved on to this workstation I bought recently second hand.

I think everything works on it. Drives whirr up, lights blink, but it doesnt put anything out to the monitor. Its a Sun Blade 100. Onboard VGA output. Ive got a native sun keyboard and mouse attached. I dont think the mother board is dead, as the heatsink on the CPU gets hot (meaning it is working). I reset the jumpers on the BIOS, no luck. The only irregularity I can find, is that "power on" light isnt coming on. I intend to trace the line to see if it is faulty, but it doesnt look disturbed from what I could see of it.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Also, does anyone know if this type of thing will support a standard PCI vid card? Ive got plenty of spares, and wonder if it will send vid output to it.

Not sure about the vid card, but you can always try the serial port trick on the Blade -- should work exactly the same. If you get nothing, then it may be that the machine is borked.

I have the same problem with my Ultra 60... Everything powers on, but no video. I'm using a Belkin sun adapter because I don't have a Sun monitor or keyboard.
