Another possibility is that the BIOS battery is dead and needs replacing (this would cause a message about the system clock needing resetting I believe).

all green light flash for a while,
and on the screen the first and only image i see is
a large blue window in the middle of the screen with white text scrolling fast, the text is in English, not dos stuff , and the only text i can pick up is the lower two lines, which, are testing the clock, it looks like its about 20 items that it is checking, one line for each item, and on the right its passed or not passed,
and these same 20 lines just keep repeating,
this blue window with the scrolling text is in the middle of my screen
on a background of a light blue grey texture, (like an IRIX)
So like an indy or indigo2, Irix GUI,
soft and delicate to look at, unlike windows.
