Default Cant get video on my server.

Hey guys, I have a Super P6DNH2 Pentium Pro server mother board, got it used... I cant get any video out of it, Ive tryed clearing CMOS, different video cards, memory, checked the jumpers, etc. When I boot it the CPU fans kick in, a green and a red led stays on in one of the corners of the board, the screen stays blank, and thats it. Can any one help me out?

Do you get any beeps?
If you get 8 beeps, its the video thats the problem. If theres no beeps, its probably the memory.
SIMMs must be installed in pairs - are using matching pairs & what spec are they?

I should plug in a speaker to the board to hear for beeps, and my SIMM I just have a bunch of it, and I did pair it up but still nothing. Last night I put in just a matching pair of 32MB EDO sticks and it still did nothing. I'll continue trying memory, cuz I haven't tested all my SIMM.
