    Sounds to me that your power supply died and you need a new one. What do you mean when you say "and the server won't boot either" you also have a Windows/Linux server that wont boot too.

    well normally when the start button turn on the power supply fan will spin vigorously and make a loud noise for a few seconds and back down normal following the start-up or POST sequence which implying the machine is OK, but in this case the power supply fan just spin and doesn't stop making that loud fan noise, and the screen is blank no POST no nothing...

    The best way is to start with what is needed to boot your computers. No extra cards or external devices. Then add until you find the problem.
