It gets stuck before completing POST?

Strip the system down bare, 1 stick of RAM, 1 HD.. just see if you can get it to fire up.

When the BIOS splash pops up, hit tab right away to see if it clears the screen. It's probably having problems detecting your SCSI drives. Are your drives terminated properly?

What's your video card's connection type, what video card is it, what monitor are you using?

What OS have you tried to load?
Have you tried to boot to CD?

BIOS settings could be primary display PCI when it should be AGP most likely.

Sounds like a hardware problem. Possibly memory or motherboard would be the first things to check. Try swapping out your memory, or running with 1 module.

Reset your BIOS to default or Fail Safe.
