Welcome to TF,

Can you give abit more background to the machine? like when did it work last? any changes? did you build it or plug it all in? also there are normally 2 LED lights, one blinks and shows HDD read/write other shows power to machine, which one is it?

First, have you made sure all cables are pushed in correctly on the machine, and monitor is plugged in correct?

Could be a fault in the mobo, open up the machine and check if there is any components missing, you say years maybe someone has taken parts out?

According to the solution in this thread:
t5730 Doesn't boot or post. Solid green light. - HP Enterprise Business Community

Check the CMOS battery on the board.

Since you said it's been years since last used...very well could be the issue.

Also check the video output.. Have you tried both VGA and DVI?
