There's not really enough to go on there.  Start by trying another monitor to make sure your current one is working.  Then clear CMOS and see if you get video next time.  If not, yank all connections and cards other than one DIMM, your CPU (and heatsink), video card, and video.  Disconnect hard drives, too.  See if that lets you boot.
As a point of history:  Our last server clear was on September 27, 2004.  That is 4963 days ago (13.6 years) as of today.

If you're visiting after a long hiatus and have forgotten your password, try emailing me via the support form at http://www.pcrpg.org.

If your character is from after the 2004 clear but appears to have been deleted or reset, chances are it was caught in one of the inactive account purges over the years.  Backups were made before such events, so try the support form.
