Are you getting a signal to the monitor? If you are and it just does not show anything, try flashing the bios again with a different bios. Don't know if you can but it is worth a try to boot to a floppy and see.

If it is searching for the floppy and you are not getting any monitor signal try this:

Make a bootable floppy to flash the bios. Run it on a different machine, but don't actually flash the bios. Just write down all the commands and you should be able to flash the bios blind. It's difficult but it can be done.
