Screen? Do you mean: nothing printed when you login to ALOM?
If there is not a single alive sign, remove power cords for 30 seconds.

Please explain what your "screen" is! A (defective) graphics card?
Do you know what I mean with ALOM?

Plug in the serial connection located usually at the back of the machine, then check ALOM.
If you know the IP address of the machine if it is static then try pinging it, if alive then telnet or ssh into it.
That might give some clues...

Then you have definitely a broken graphics card!
The rest of the system might work nevertheless, you should try ping|ssh|telnet access over the Ethernet LAN!
Get a new graphics card, and also get used to ALOM!
ALOM has a direct serial connector (9600, 8, 1, xon/xoff) and an Ethernet connector. From ALOM you get console access: you see what the system is doing at boot time, and after successful Solaris boot it goes to a (non-graphical) Solaris login. Google for: V445 ALOM serial connector
