    A Dell PowerEdge 850 of mine won't start, you plug it in and it just flashes the front and back led lights (orange) and displayed no ABCD code. I have reseated the memory, even tried to boot the system with no HDD, RAM, PCIE cards with the exact same results. I am clueless!

    That's a very old server. Not sure if there is much you can do to figure out the problem without getting the system to power up and POST. And parts might be very hard to come by and might not even make financial sense. You're probably better off buying a more current Dell server.

    It could be the capacitors gone bad or power supply. My 2009 Power edge SC430 had some bad caps and a power supply go bad but replaced the power supply and picked up a refurbished motherboard for $25 and replaced it.
