The VGA is IIRC SOG (Sync On Green) not all monitors support this.
If you have a HP-IB/GP-IB interface for a PC you can use Ansgars HPDrive to boot.
It's found at www.hp9845.net .
Also the drives used in the 9000/38X series are single ended scsi of external Fast HP-IB.
If you download the HP Basic 51. or 6.2 from the HP Computer Museum website you can boot of a the internal floppy drive and at least you know if the basics work.
Even without a keyboard this should boot and come to the start screen.
